One-way shuttle ex taupo or whakapapa village

We will pick you up in Taupo from your accommodation or the local iSite in town and drop you at either the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing track at Mangatepopo or Whakapapa Village. 

We can also transfer you from Whakapapa Village when you have completed your trek several days later and bring you back to Taupo.

These transfers fit in with our scheduled runs to/from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in summer and Mt Ruapehu in winter. Please enquire when you make your booking which time may fit best for you and we will do our best to make it happen.  

UPDATE - Our daily shuttle services to the Tongariro Crossing have now finished until next season. But in case you need a shuttle - you can enquire here.

Pickup from our B&B right at time - nice driver - everything great! The company was very friendly and helpful in the beginning and also picked us up from our B&B accomodation. They drove safe and were helpful with some extra information. Great trip!

The driver was fantastic. Full of information and a true local. I would definitely recommend this company. It’s a small mini bus which is much nicer than the big buses.

Great way to visit Tongariro
The pick up service was on time, staff very friendly and informative and the complimentary ice pops at the end of the hike were greatly appreciated! :)
