Top Tips

This fantastic evening option is ideally suited for tour groups and individuals to maximise a travel day to or from Tongariro National Park. This walk is also great for those who would like to experience the volcanic terrain but have limited time or fitness for the more strenuous full day treks. This is a superb way of experiencing the Tongariro National Park and enjoying this stunning time of day. The sunset tour is an easy 2 hours amongst the Tongariro Volcanoes. We pick and choose the exact route to suit the level of ability for the group. For example, if walking on a pathless track is too difficult, we can change the route to something easier.

The route is selected from one of the following: We walk for approximately 60 – 80 minutes before selecting the ideal spot to enjoy a glass of New Zealand bubbles as we watch the sunset. The preferred route is the Taranaki Falls loop track, other route options are a return trip starting on the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing track, return route out to sunset ridge or Meads Wall. Your guide will talk about the area with their local knowledge of geology, volcanology and New Zealand cultural history. A memorable way to see the National Park with sunset lighting up a majestic Alpine setting.
