Tongariro Northern Circuit
- Duration: 3 Days (approx.)
- Location: Tongariro National Park
- Product code: TACNORTHC
The Tongariro Northern Circuit winds its way around the active volcanoes Mount Tongariro and Mount Ngauruhoe, showcasing the spectacular volcanic terrain of the central North Island.
The walk passes through unique and stunning landscapes, including active volcanic craters, brilliant blue lakes, and glacial valleys.
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 will then collect you from Whakapapa Village when you have completed your trek several days later and bring you back to Taupo.
You will need to book two trips if you want two pickups.
We know the challenges the mountains offer and our experience will help overcome these.
Over 30 years of working and enjoying our mountains as a guide, ski patroller and as part of alpine rescue.
Safety is our priority
As a DOC concessionaire we take our responsibilities and your safety seriously.
During the winter months you must have ice axe and crampons and you must know how to use them and be fully aware of the alpine conditions. We can provide up to date weather and track conditions.
We pick up from most accommodation in Taupo and Turangi as well as a central pick up in front of the respective I-sites.
Please be ready and waiting at your chosen departure point at least 10 minutes prior to departure.
