All you need for a great crossing - apart from the weather!
Mt Ngauruhoe - Mount Doom from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy
The Tongariro National Park is a true paradise for walkers and anyone wanting to experience something that will stay with them for life. It is home to Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngauruhoe - the great mountains of the central North Island’s volcanic plateau. You walk through stunning alpine gardens and over moonlike land shaped by lava flows.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing , a full day walk, is regarded as the best in New Zealand and one of the best one day walks in the world.
One of the things that The Lord of the Rings movie fans want to do in New Zealand is visit as many of the movie sites as possible. The Ruapehu district offers many fully guided Lord of the Rings tours are available throughout the Ruapehu district.
Not only do you get to see Mount Doom, Orc Country and the remains of the movie sites, you will also encounter beauty with captivating views and scenery.
There is a lot to do in this area, come rain or shine! We have the local knowledge to help you enjoy your stay here.
For what's happening on the mountain right here, right now, then we would love to hear from you!
