Overview

With an exclusive guide leading the way, set off on an exhilarating exclusive Tongariro Alpine Crossing Day Walk stretching for 19 kms. from Mangatepopo to Ketetahi in New Zealand. All year-round, we guide the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, and are fortunate that every day Mother Nature grants us an enjoyable and safe passage.

Experience an intimate, informative and customised exclusive guided trip you will never forget, the kind that we ourselves would like to have. We keep the group size small, the trip tailored to everyone’s fitness level, and our guides well-equipped to deal with every “behind the scenes” detail to ensure you have nothing but a great time. Your guide’s knowledge and experience will come in handy when assessing the track and weather conditions, timing your personalised transport pick-up from Ketetahi, and steering you away from areas exposed to the elements or thronged with hikers to put you in the best possible position to enjoy to the fullest your Tongariro experience.

Fitness and Experience

Tour Grading: C

A reasonably good level of fitness is required. If you are concerned about your fitness please let your guide know before commencing the walk, as there are options we may be able to offer if your concerns come to fruition. Walking time is about 7 hours including stops. No alpine experience is required.
