Tongariro One Day Guided Walk
Experience the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, often rated as one of the world's best one day walks, with a knowledgeable local guide.
This one day guided walk of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is the easiest, most convenient and truly rewarding way to experience one of the world's top hikes.
Your Private guide collects you from your Whakapapa or National Park accommodation for the short drive to the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. This is a wonderful yet challenging 8 hour (19km) hike through a dramatic volcanic and alpine environment.
The track runs through the Mangatepopo Valley (900m) to the saddle between Tongariro and Ngauruhoe Mountains. Two steep climbs lead to Red Crater (1886m), then a scree slope drops down to the vivid Emerald Lakes. After passing the Green and Blue lakes the track then sidles around the northern slope of Mount Tongariro with great views of Lake Taupo, before the descent of switch-backs and steps to the end (600m).
Your private transport awaits you at the end of the track and you return late afternoon to your Tongariro National Park or Whakapapa Village accommodation.
