Walks & Hikes in Tongariro National Park

There are many walks in Tongariro National Park, ranging in length from a few hours to four or five days.

Information like current weather forecasts, up-to-date track conditions, snow stability estimates (in winter) and volcanic alert status are available from local i-SITE and the Department of Conservation.

Most of the shorter Tongariro National Park walks are on well-surfaced tracks and are suitable for most visitors. However, some of the longer walks like the Mt. Ruapehu Crater climb, are completely unmarked and require special care and navigation.
