Adventure HQ knows Mt Tongariro and its challenges, it is our home and it is where we live.

We will help you to be safe during your trek; we have the latest weather and track information and years of local knowledge. On site at Adventure HQ we have everything you need to be fully prepared.

Be Prepared

What to Bring:

  • Backpack.
  • Food and plenty of fluid, especially on hot days. Minimum 1.5 litres pp.
  • Windproof/waterproof jacket (over-trousers are a good idea too).
  • Sturdy comfortable footwear. Uneven volcanic terrain can be difficult and tiring to walk on.
  • Warm layers of clothing – cotton clothes do not keep you warm when it's wet.
  • Hat and gloves.
  • Sun protection.
  • Personal first aid kit optional.
  • Cell phone.
  • Trekking poles.

We have equipment and clothing for hire as well as sunscreen and water to purchase.
