Tongariro National Park Day Walks

From short family-friendly hikes to more challenging day walks like the world renowned Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Tongariro National Park has it all. The Sunrise or Sunset walk are great options for those who are short on time.

You can hike Ruapehu’s Crater Lake that changes colour from an amazing deep green to pale blue to solid dark grey depending on its temperature. And of course, those who want to experience the “Best Day Walk” in New Zealand should try hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.

Travelling during the winter season? No problem! The Winter Tongariro Alpine crossing version will have you walking on blinding white snow and enjoying the winter magic that summer doesn’t offer.

You can also book a customised exclusive guided Tongariro Alpine Crossing trip.
