Tongariro Alpine Crossing-Winter/Spring

A guided winter Tongariro Alpine Crossing is truly unique. The world famous walk, wearing it's Winter coat. This one-day alpine trek covers a little over ​19km (12 miles) and encounters a varied range of landforms and views, with areas of geological importance, and of great cultural significance, as it heads up and over Mt Tongariro.

Difficulty: Challenging

Allow: 6-8 hours

Distance: 19.4km

Climb: 776m Descent: 1126m

The added dimension of walking the track in snow conditions adds a different type of beauty and another type of challenge.  We provide all of the equipment that you need, but most importantly, we teach you how and when to use it safely, so it is a trip that can be done by people who have never even touched snow before!

The package includes transport from Turangi, National Park and Whakapapa Villages, the necessary winter clothing and equipment of boots, ice axes, crampons and of course, all the benefits of being accompanied by one of our friendly, knowledgeable, safety conscious guides.

As well as the year-round challenge provided by the weather, (even more influential in the winter and spring), snow conditions can make some parts of the track easier, while other parts may require a little more work.
