Ruapehu & Tongariro

Ruapehu & Tongariro

This region is dominated by three volcanic mountains standing sentinel over a landscape of tussocked desert, rivers, emerald lakes and thermal springs.

The centre piece of Tongariro National Park is snow capped Mount Ruapehu with Mount Ngauruhoe (also known as Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings triology) and Mount Tongariro sitting alongside.

The Park is home to the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing but there are many other wonderful walks from ten minutes to six hours which are just as outstanding.
