Single Day Walk – Tongariro Alpine Crossing, New Zealand

Share/Bookmark

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing has been labeled as the world’s greatest single day hike. Lava flows, an active crater, steam vents, emerald-coloured lakes and magnificent views combine to make this an unforgettable walking journey. The 19.4km hike high into a volcanic alpine environment is a must-do in New Zealand but does require a bit of preparation. The weather can change quickly and unexpectedly in any alpine environment. At times conditions can be extreme. Be prepared for every type of weather. Tongariro National Park is a UNESCO dual World Heritage Area and was the first in the world to receive cultural World Heritage Status.
