PREMIUM TONGARIRO ALPINE CROSSING
This 19km trek is New Zealand’s best day one day walk. The track leads up to the saddle between Mt. Ngauruhoe and Mt. Tongariro. The landscape on Tongariro is peppered with the different coloured and shaped craters that have been active at different periods, scoured volcanic rocks, mountain springs, and brightly coloured emerald lakes.
Summer offers a majestic landscape of recent resultant volcanic activity. There is a vast array of colors and textures created from Sulfur, Aluminum, Silica, and many other mineral deposits released from within the Earth’s Crust. In summer this track can be crowded and where possible, we take our clients away from the masses, while making sure that the popular sights are still experienced. Want to avoid the summer crowds? Take a look at our Sunrise Tongariro Crossing Guided Walk which has you on the top of Red Crater watching the sun rise with the peaceful, still, quiet moments of the dawn.
Winter offers the opportunity to walk through the magnificent snow covered landscape without the summer crowds. No outdoor experience is necessary, all training and tuition is given on the day. Crampons and ice-axes are supplied by Adrift Tongariro for a fantastic alpine experience.
Guide/s, return transfers from the Adrift Tongariro base, lunch, all equipment required, footwear and clothing to supplement that which you don’t have and need up to a $40 free allowance ($10 per item).
