Long considered one of New Zealand's best walks, the Tongariro Crossing is a must-do while in the Central North Island of NZ. Only one hours drive from Taupo, this Tongariro Crossing walk is an all-inclusive 7 to 8 hour trek across a blend of beautifully rugged terrain accompanied by experienced, friendly guides who will show you the ropes and ensure your safety while you take in all its charms. With a distance of 19 kilometres in total, this walk is challenging and requires a reasonable amount of fitness, however its rewards are more than fulfilling - see rich national park lands, dramatic mountain peaks, and moon-like craters far below.
