  • I am traveling alone and I would like to join others for the hike.  If there are others already booked for the date that you have chosen, it will be a Join-a-Group price of NZ$120.00 for a half day hike If no-one has booked for the date that you have chosen, but you are willing to let others join you, we will book you in at the Join-a-Group rate of NZ$190.00 for a half day hike, which will reduce to NZ$120.00,   if someone else books in on your trip.
  • I am traveling alone and I would like to book a Private Guided trip just for me at NZ$270.00, so that I can guarantee there will only be my Guide and I.

This walk often gives great views, even when walks such as the Tongariro Crossing are clouded over.

The Tongariro River Delta at the southern end of Lake Taupo are below us.  That is one great volcanic caldera, truly impressive.
