Good for avoiding crowds


The Tongariro Alpine Crossing has been called one of the greatest day walks in the world, but it can get very crowded. On this private sunrise walk, you’ll get there early enough to beat the crowds, and may even take a different route, depending on conditions. Marvel at the lunar-like volcanic landscape, an area that’s sacred to the local Maori people, without other people spoiling your view. All gear will be provided, including ice axes and crampons, if necessary.
  • Tackle the challenging hike safely with a guide
  • Avoid the crowds by going early in the morning
  • Best suited to fit travelers with some mountain hiking experience
  • Breakfast, clothing, footwear, and cold-weather gear are provided
