Tongariro Travel Guide

Tongariro is New Zealand's oldest National Park and arguably the most famous. The National Park is that important it holds not one but two World Heritage status', for natural importance and cultural importance.

A unique mix of volcanoes, lakes, forests, fields and the famous emerald lakes makes Tongariro a popular destination to explore and experience a few days living in wilderness.

“Could you tell me where I should go in New Zealand?” This is one of the most asked questions at the Mad travel desk. Most people coming here to New Zealand come for the amazing scenery that New Zealand has to offer. One of these great locations, and one of my personal favourite places to visit, would be the Tongariro National Park.

MT ruapehu tongariro crossing120

Mt Ruapehu is one of three mountains in the Tongariro National park, located in central North Island of New Zealand. It is the oldest National Park in New Zealand and was the fourth National Park to be set up in the world. And apart from the fact that the surrounding landscape can make your jaw drop to the ground in a matter of seconds, the park also holds a place in UNESCO's 25 World Heritage Sites for its outstanding natural volcanic features but also for the strong spiritual importance of the mountain summits to the local Maori.

If hiking and biking isn't really your thing but you are soaking in the surroundings of Tongariro National Park and fancy trying something new and having a bit of fun then give Adventure Kayak Tours a try. It's kayaking with a twist. Your kayak is essentially a two person raft or an inflatable kayak, whichever way you want to look at it.

Tongariro National Park is famous for two things really, the Tongariro crossing and Lord of the Rings. However, with such a massive stretch of land it's only natural that there should be a few more activities to amuse visitors to the area. If you are looking for a way to get outdoors and get amongst the awesome National Park then try hopping on a mountain bike and exploring the area.
