Welcome to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing!
Touted as one of the world’s best day hikes and New Zealand’s best day hike, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a 19km mountain trek between two volcanoes, craters and through the jungle.
To give you a sense of how popular this place is, literally ever guide book about New Zealand you read will have two things listed as MUST-DO’s: Milford Sound and Tongariro Crossing. Well, I can officially say I’ve done both!
The amount of different landscapes you visit in this 6 hour hike is actually incomprehensible. It’s like I’ve traveled to a whole other planet — actually make that two.
