Tongariro Alpine Crossing
Tongariro Crossing Shuttles
We offer 4 departures daily to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Shuttles depart from 6 stops in National Park Village, including the new transport hub ‘Park and Ride’ at the railway station. Kiwi Camp is at the same location. We can also collect you on the way, if you are staying at Mangahuia campsite. 4 return times daily mid week and 5 times on weekends, public holidays and school holidays gives you the ultimate in flexibility to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing at your own pace.
Why depart from Taupo at 5am when you can stay in National Park! We are 80 minutes drive from Taupo, 40 minutes drive from Turangi, and 30 min from Ohakune and Taumarunui. Tongariro Crossing Shuttles are local to the crossing area, so we can monitor the weather first hand. If the weather is better than expected, we will be able to take advantage of that.
Leave your vehicle parked safely at your accommodation, at The Alpine Centre or Park and Ride and let us do the driving for you.
