Tour Itinerary

We can arrange to pick students up from school for school group bookings.

Depart Auckland 4 pm. We drive about 4 hours toward Taupo and the Alpine Crossing, to check-in to our accommodation.


Evening of relaxing and fun, have a briefing about the events of the next day.

Very Early Breakfast.

We travel to the start of the track and begin our great adventure walk across the volcanic plateau. This walk will deliver breath taking views and amazing natural wonders.

New Zealand’s oldest national park and a dual World Heritage Site. The Tongariro National Park is rich in both cultural identity and dramatic, awe-inspiring natural scenery. Unique landforms, including the volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu ensure the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a world-renowned trek.

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is heralded as the best one-day trek available in New Zealand, while others say it ranks among the top ten single-day treks in the world.

Travel back to the hostel, on the way we will relax in a natural hot stream and rejuvenate the muscles.


Relax next to a worm fire and share photos from the walk.


Spend the morning in the lakefront Town Centre. Local artworks, park, gardens, and most importantly the Lakefront. On a clear day, you will look across this huge lake that stretches across to Tongariro National Park with its 3 volcanic peaks. Lake Taupo is the is the crater of the world’s biggest extinct volcano.

After lunch we also visit the world famous Huka Falls, pouring 200,000 L/s as New Zealand’s longest river is channeled through a narrow canyon. Aratiatia rapids (Lord of the Rings site), we stop to take some great photos and time-lapse the rapids as the grow from a stream to a thundering cascade.

Or adventure comes to an end and we make our way back to Auckland.

Arrive home around 7pm.
