“Hike to Tama Lakes (Upper and Lower Tama Lakes) from Whakapapa Visitor Centre at Ngauruhoe Place. After leaving the Taranaki Falls Walk, the track crosses undulating tussock country and alpine herbfields. Further on, the track branches to the left to Tama Lakes, while the main track continues on to Waihohonu Hut. There is a view of the lower lake (1240 metres), then the track climbs steeply to a viewpoint (1440 metres) of the upper lake. Tama Lakes occupy several old explosion craters on the Tama Saddle between Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe. There are no formed tracks down to the lakes, the descent to both is via steep gullies.”

“This is such a great experience and loads of fun. Tongariro River Rafting has got what it takes to make this an amazing day. The guides will make sure your experience is personal. Tongariro River Rafting also does some great conservation work involving Whio or Blue Duck. For an 'elevated' experience choose the 'Access 10' trip. For the experienced fly-fisherman this company does amazing fly-fishing expeditions for a day. ”

“The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is rated as the best one-day hike in New Zealand. Trek across a volcanic alpine landscape of dramatic contrasts – steaming vents, glacial valleys, ancient lava flows, alpine vegetation and vivid crater lakes, all with stunning views. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is an incredible 19km journey through the Tongariro National Park, a UNESCO Dual World Heritage Park recognised for its spiritual and cultural significance as well as its outstanding volcanic features. The trail takes in some of the most dramatic landscapes you will ever see — cold mountain springs, ancient lava flows, steam vents and the spectacular Emerald Lakes. ”
