Tongariro Alpine Crossing
The Best One Day Hike in New Zealand - The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is rated as ‘the best one day trek in New Zealand’ and listed by many as one of the 'top 10 day treks in the world'.
Lonely Planet even said that this Tongariro walk amidst the volcanoes is a life-changing experience not to be missed. The diverse and dramatic scenery and unique land forms are spectacular and you will experience some of the most scenic and volcanically active areas of the Tongariro National Park.
The trek is sometimes referred to as the 'Tongariro Crossing' walk or simply 'The Crossing' but was officially changed to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing to reflect the alpine environment of the track and the hazards that the alpine environment can bring. Please be adequately equipped and attired when you attempt the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
