Guided Hiking, North Island, New Zealand
Walking Places is the Central North Island's leading hiking outfitter, offering guided walks on tracks in and around the Tongariro National Park.
Join us to find out why the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is often referred to as the best one day walk in New Zealand, (if not the world), with a guide who will reveal some of the secrets of this stunning area. After the minor volcanic event of 6 August 2012 on Mt Tongariro, we will have some exciting new features to show you when the full length of the track opens (expected to be the end of October 2012), until then, our Tongariro Alpine Experience is available.
Our Tongariro Alpine Experience takes in the best features of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, in just a little shorter distance and with all of the benefits of being with a Department of Conservation approved Guiding Concessionaire, you know that you will have the best day possible. Join us for a climb to the spectacular Red Crater of Mt Tongariro, and enjoy the chance to take in the majesty of this active volcanic massif before returning via the same track. The views that spread far beyond the National Park will leave you breathless.
These are only two of a huge variety of walks that Walking Places can offer, ranging from a few hours, through to full day hikes and multi-day packages. There is something for everyone wanting to explore on foot this incredible area.
We will seek out the option that will make the most of your time in the North Island’s spectacular Central Plateau region.
