Tongariro Alpine Crossing

“If I never hiked again, the memory of this vista could see me happily through the rest of my days”


The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is known as ‘New Zealand’s best one day walk’, and each year, more than 100,000 people experience this spectacular trek.

Chateau Tongariro Hotel offers the ideal hotel accommodation during your hike experience.

The legendary Tongariro Alpine Crossing takes you over volcanic terrain that is as varied as it is breath-taking.
You’ll see natural hot springs ‘hidden’ in the mountains, ancient lava formations, waterfalls that flow from crisp mountain streams, iridescent crater lakes (the Emerald Lakes, Blue Lake and the Red Crater) and lush forest.

This 7 to 8 hour journey is a ‘must-experience’ while visiting Tongariro National Park during summer or spring. 

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a challenging alpine trek. Please refer to the Department of Conservation information sheet about items to take.
