The Tongariro Alpine Crossing track crosses stark and spectacular volcanic terrain. Among its highlights are steaming vents and hot springs, old lava flows, beautiful water-filled explosion craters and stunning views. On clear days you can see Mount Taranaki in the west, Mount Ngauruhoe, the Kaimanawa Ranges, Lake Taupo and beyond.
This is true "Lord of the Rings" country and Mount Ngauruhoe became better known as Mount Doom, thanks to this Academy Award Winning Trilogy.
This area is pure magic and we can't wait to take you there. We have the most comfortable vehicle, and transport you at times that suit YOU! WE can take you right to the track start and pick you up from the end. Then we have beautiful soft beds awaiting you at the end of your epic day.
