Winter on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing
During winter conditions when snow and ice cover the track, we offer a package that includes transport and all equipment* (ie. boots, clothing, packs, crampons and poles).
For your safety, guides will accompany you on the trip and will assess which routes are to be taken to avoid the risk of avalanche and ice danger. This means that during heavy snow or ice, trips may go to the summit of the track at the Red Crater and return.
Our guides will instruct you in the use of the hiking equipment. They are there to help, should you need it and to take control over any difficulties that may occur.
Adventure HQ has two Guided Hikes:
- Premium Guided Hike @$225.00 pp
- Group Guided Hike @$175.00 pp
Note: side tracks to summits of Tongariro and Ngauruhoe are not part of this package.
* Hikers may choose to use their own equipment but full package rate still applies.
