Tongariro Alpine Crossing-Summer/Autumn

Join us to find out why this is often referred to as the best one day walk in New Zealand, (if not the world), with a Guide who will reveal some of the secrets of this stunning area.

Difficulty: Challenging

 

Allow: 7-9 hours

Distance: 19.4km

Climb- 776m Descent- 1126m

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.
