Winter transforms one of the world’s most famous one-day walks into a spectacular snow-white wonderland. Let our expert guides take you there on sensational day out in Tongariro National Park.

Our winter trips run from 1 May to 31 October. With the summer crowds long gone, this is your chance to see the Tongariro Alpine Crossing as tranquil and unhurried as it used to be. Snow and ice blanket the landscape’s amazing lakes and craters, creating scenes even more surreal than in summer. The views are better, too, the crystal-clear bringing even Whakaari (White Island) – 200km away – into focus on a good day.

There are new sensations and new skills to learn, with no previous alpine experience necessary. Our expert guides provide all the gear, skills and personal attention you need to stay safe, warm and happy – come snow, rain or shine.

Expect to spend half the trip hiking through the crunchy, sparkling snow, which makes for surprisingly smooth going. And keep your fingers crossed for some icy terrain, as this offers a chance for you to try the ice axe and crampons, and snap a few ‘hardcore’ photos to show the folks back home!

If you’ve ever wanted to experience the peace and pristine beauty of a hike above the snowline, our winter Tongariro Alpine Crossing tour is for you.
