Activity description

One of the most iconic hiking experiences in the Taupo region is the Tongariro Crossing. During winter, the mountains get covered in snow making it an exciting day of adventure!

If you want to experience the thrill of hiking with crampons and an ice axe in alpine terrain, head on to Adventure HQ and let them guide you on the amazing Tongariro Alpine Crossing during the winter months.

The Tongariro Crossing starting point is the Ketetahi carpark, the last accessible place by car. From that point on, you'll walk towards the Ketetahi mountain. The hike then continues towards the mountainsides of Mount Tongariro and the pass right between this mountain and Mount Ngauruhoe. The final destination of the hike will be the Mangatepopo Hut. 

Adventure HQ offers this amazing experience during winter which includes all necessary equipment and a professional guide that will lead the way. Also, transportation to the starting point and back from the end of the hike is included.

Don't overthink it and experience this amazing hike!
