The Crossing is regarded in the top 10 one day hikes in the world and is considered New Zealand’s best! Traversing two active volcanoes, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is situated in the world famous Tongariro National Park. A dual World Heritage Area.
When the weather is great, the track can get really hot, so sunblock is a must have. The weather however can be very changeable so dress accordingly and prepare for the worst. Make sure you pack some warm clothes and a waterproof jacket and if you are unsure of what you need in your backpack then have a look at what to take. Check out Mountain Forecast for the latest in weather news.
Preparation is key and a moderate degree of fitness is best. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing track is well marked and toilets are available enroute, but there is no fresh water available so take at least 1.5L per person. It is also important to take ALL of your rubbish out with you.

Tongariro Crossing Shuttles
Our Tongariro Alpine Crossing shuttle one way service is ideal for those passing through the area. Park your vehicle at the end of the track (Ketetahi Road end) and catch our shuttle to the beginning. Then hike the Crossing back to your vehicle. Two shuttles depart each morning for maximum flexibility.
We are local to the Crossing area, so we monitor the weather closely and take advantage when it is better than expected. We do not cancel due to weather until the day itself.
There is limited parking at the Ketetahi Rd end, so plan carefully and consider our return shuttle option instead to be sure.
