Tongariro Hiking Tours, New Zealand

Tongariro National Park was formed as New Zealand's first National Park in 1887, and is situated more or less halfway between Auckland and Wellington, in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand.


Tongariro National Parks most popular day trek the "Tongariro Alpine Crossing", and another really incredible experience one day walk is the Ruapehu Crater Lake Walk. For those with the time, the "Tongariro Northern Circuit" is a 3 to 4 day trek that is well worth doing.
