On the Tongariro Hiking Tour we walk the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, usually on Day 2 of the itinerary. The Department of Conservation is trialing a booking system for this track throughout the 2023/2024 New Zealand summer hiking season. They would like all independent and guided walkers to make a booking before arriving to walk the track. To keep things hassle-free for our walkers our office team will make and manage bookings for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing for our groups. This is completely free, there’s no extra charge to you. You don’t have to do anything extra – just bring your boots and come ready for a good time!
