Lots of visitors enjoying their time hiking this very special and incredible place. We hope you all have an enjoyable time and take home some beautiful memories.

Wow, what a fantastic weekend to hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing! Brilliant clear blue sky days with a good breeze to keep you cool. Lots of manuhiri (visitors) out there who will go back home very happy with their experience. Great to see everyone well equipped with the necessary gear to ensure they have a great day. Looking forward to more of these days this summer!
Summer is looming! The weather forecast for Tongariro National Park this weekend is looking pretty sweet so we will be running our shuttles to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing this weekend - 22nd and 23rd September! The track is 95% clear with some residue snow/ice on the descent from Red Crater down to Emerald Lakes. We ask that people stay on the track, dress warmly, have sturdy tramping boots and be respectful of the fact that you are walking over a mountain that holds much mana with the people who work and live in this most beautiful place.
