Tongariro Alpine Crossing

One of New Zealand's great walks

Time: 7 hours full track (requires transfers)

Grade: Moderate to Difficult

Start: Shuttle from National Park or Parking available (4 hrs only)  Get Google Maps directions

The Tongariro National Park is New Zealand's oldest national park and a dual World Heritage Site. It is rich in both cultural history and superb natural volcanic scenery. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is described as one of New Zealands best one day hikes. Seeing the major volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu ensure the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is considered a world-renowned track. The full 19.4km track requires transport to and from a local licensed operator or you can park in the car park for 4 hours if you are only going part of the way. Take warm weather gear as the weather changes quickly. The walk now has New Zealand Great Walks status.

I don’t see how the ‘big’ car rentals companies can compete with Ezi - they cannot be beaten for price, quality of cars, and customer service. On multiple occassions i have used they are 50% cheaper than the others, yet they are amazing! I will only ever use Ezi car when in new zealand..!
