Tongariro Winter Crossing

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing over Winter (June 1 to 15 October) has all that summer offers plus one key ingredient that summer doesn't, SNOW. Beautiful white pristine often shimmering snow, sometimes stretched for as far as the eye can see. Often whilst I am walking in one of the snow laden craters my mind wanders off imagining I am walking on a expedition to the South Pole or Iceland or even the North Pole, not a person in sight nothing but a snowy expanse....heaven!
