Tongariro Crossing & Mt Ruapehu Premium Transport Services

Life Needs Adventure!

In just five years based in Taupo, Adventure HQ Taupo’s shuttle service has evolved into a tourist venture with transport to the iconic Tongariro Alpine Crossing, door-to-door services, private shuttles and transfers around the Central Plateau including Whakapapa and National Park Villages.


With their collective experience living and working in the Central North Island, owners Deb and Paul help with more than just transport, they give our local and international visitors an insight into our region.

Get advice and information about our local gems, including the best things to do, best places to ski, and other inside knowledge tourists wouldn’t know about.

While Adventure HQ Taupo’s key offering is their shuttle services to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Mt Ruapehu, they can also provide alternative options for those closed mountain days with the introduction of a new “Taupo Sightseeing Shuttle”.

Deb and Paul

“A number of people visit Taupo intent on hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or Mt Ruapehu and are disappointed when the weather does not allow them to do so and many of them don’t have vehicles”

They are keen to ensure customers don’t leave the region without seeing other terrific spots. 

They also provide private shuttles for group bookings and people who want more flexibility on where they want to visit in the region.
