Tongariro Alpine Crossing

Return Shuttle Service
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is amongst the best one-day hikes in the world and is rated the #1 one day hike in New Zealand!
The track is open for access all year round and can be hiked during both the Winter and Summer seasons. However, we highly recommend using the services of a qualified local guide to complete the crossing during the Winter season. Not sure what pick up point to use? choose Park and Ride car park as your pick up location. This is located at the end of Findlay Street in National Park Village.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a 6-8 hour hike with some challenging climbs, but breathtaking views. It’s certainly worth the effort!
The track can be very hot on a sunny day so sunblock is a must! The weather is extremely changeable, so prepare well and ensure you have warm layers as well as a waterproof coat, should you need them. Unsure of the weather conditions for the day of your planned hike? Then see the live 5-day weather feed on our home page, or check out the Mountain Forecast.
A moderate degree of fitness is best. However, an early Shuttle in the morning and a late Shuttle in the afternoon allows for ample time to get through comfortably. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing track is very well marked and there are toilet stops along the way. There are however no rubbish bins or freshwater supply, so it is important to pack lots of water and take ALL of your rubbish out with you.
We have safety messages from the Department of Conservation attached to your confirmation letter. For more track information, volcanic unrest and bad weather advisory visit DoC. Tongariro Crossing Shuttles
We offer 4 departures daily to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Shuttles depart from 6 stops in National Park Village, including the transport hub at the Railway Station "Park and Ride'. We can also collect from various spots on the way, such as the Mangahuia DoC campsite if required. 4-5 return times daily gives you the ultimate in flexibility to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing at your own pace.
Why depart from Taupo at 5am when you can stay in National Park! We are 90 minutes drive from Taupo, 45 minutes drive from Turangi, Ohakune and Taumarunui. Tongariro Crossing Shuttles are local to the crossing area, so we can monitor the weather first hand. If the weather is better than expected, we are able to take advantage of that.
Leave your vehicle parked safely at your accommodation, at Ski Biz Alpine Centre or Park and Ride and let us do the driving for you.
If you do not make the last shuttle at 5.30pm, we will make a special trip to collect you outside of our normal schedule, a late fee will be charged.
