Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Tongariro National Park, Dual World Heritage Area, New Zealand

New Zealand's oldest national park and a dual World Heritage Site. The Tongariro National Park is rich in both cultural identity and dramatic, awe-inspiring natural scenery. Unique landforms, including the volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu ensure the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is considered a world-renowned trek.

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is heralded as the best one-day trek available in New Zealand, while others say it ranks among the top ten single-day treks in the world.

Many who complete the 19.4-kilometre journey will tell you the climbs can be steep and the weather unpredictable, though worth it in every aspect.

Prepare for the elements. Ensure transport is arranged to drop you at the beginning of the track and pick you up at the end of the day.

Face the challenge, feast on the adventure and treat yourself to a truly unique and unforgettable experience in one of New Zealand’s most picturesque and inspiring natural environments.
