The Tongariro Crossing or also commonly called the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, is one of the most popular of the 9 ‘Great Walks’ designated by the Department of Conservation.
The walk generally takes between 9 & 10 hours depending on the level of fitness and Owhango Adventures can drop you off at the start of the walk in the morning and pick you up at the end in the carpark.
The walk is popular during the summer months of the year and the shoulder season is still possible to undertake the walk but with the right preparation and provisions. The weather around Mount Ruapehu can change rapidly and turn from bright sunshine one minute to cold and wet and blowing a gale in a matter of hours.
For more information on the walk and side tracks, please visit the DOC Tongariro Alpine Crossing website.
