Day Walks - Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand

Back to Map 

Visited: Late Nov and Late Dec

A chance to explore a volcanic wilderness, largely devoid of vegetation. The route is most dramatic at the start of the season in mid November, when ice still covers the volcanic crater lakes and snow spills down the symmetrical slopes of Nguarahoe volcano.
