The scenery here is so breathtakingly beautiful. It provided the perfect location for many scenes from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In 2012, the Tongariro National Park was again used as a backdrop for the prequel 'The Hobbit'.
With a Lord of the Rings guide, you can see Mount Doom (Mount Ngauruhoe), Orc Country, Ithilien Camp, the door of Sammath Naur, the Sea of Boulders and so much more in and around the Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park – bring your camera, you will need it!
The Chateau Tongariro is the perfect base for all your sightseeing activities!
