Let us take you on a journey to experience for yourself the world famous and spectacular Tongariro Alpine Crossing trek. This is a door to door service that will ensure you have one of the greatest days of your life! Once you arrive at the start of the track you then do the hard part - hiking 19.4km up and over the very beautiful Mt Tongariro - including getting up close and personal with towering Mt Ngauruhoe (or Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings trilogy!). At the end of the track you will find us waiting for you to take you back to your accommodation - tired but very satisfied with your day. You need to be of reasonable fitness to enjoy this hike. It is in an alpine environment with steep ascents and descents. This hike is not suitable for infants or small children.
