  • A full day tour for untrained hikers, where you try the power of 15-20 km in hilly landscape. A little hard we all think. The kids are 9 and 12 but could handle it. A super alternative to Tongariro Crossing. Incredibly beautiful and wild nature with a view you haven't seen before. We were, however, well tired after a long day in the sun.

  • Very nice walk from the hotel. Especially when the Tongariro crossing circuit is banned. Make AR by the two different paths on either side of the Falls.
