Tongariro Alpine Crossing

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is one of the most popular of the 9 ‘Great Walks’ designated by the Department of Conservation.

doc-brochureThe Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a walkway across the edge of Mount Tongariro and Mount Ngauruhoe including a walk across a lunar like landscape with views of active volcanoes and recent lava flows.

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 in the colder seasons it 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 sidetracks, please visit the DOC Tongariro Alpine Crossing website.
