The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a challenging one-day alpine trek which covers a little over 19.4km (12 miles) and encounters a varied range of landforms and views. This track passes through areas of fascinating geology and is of great cultural significance, as it heads up and over Mt Tongariro. The direction that we walk this track makes good sense, climbing some 776m (or 2528ft), but descending a total of 1126m (or 3716ft)!
Built by fiery eruptions and sculpted by glaciers, learn about the significance of Tongariro to those who live nearby, and the history of this, the first Dual World Heritage National Park in New Zealand.
