Tongariro crossing in winter, mount Ngauruhoe, the great walk Tongariro crossing in winter, mount Ngauruhoe, the great walk

Whakapapa Village Visitor Centre is your first stop. The visitor centre is a dynamic meeting place for trampers undertaking the Tongariro Crossing. A gigantic screen outlining the crossing stops, hazards and spectacular scenery greets visitors entering the premises. If you have younger members of your party this is a great place to introduce them to the National Park’s breathtaking landscape, the flora and fauna that call the place home. Year round the visitor centre caters for summer visitors tramping the mountains and winter skiers.

There is a large gift and clothing shop for individuals who need warm clothing, a T shirt or simply indulge in some window shopping. Naturally you have browsed the brochures, the guidebooks which are complementary and part of the New Zealand travel experience. NOTE : (image Tongariro Crossing)
Tongariro Crossing is on the bucket list for great hiking trips and can be accomplished in a day. Tongariro Alpine Crossing check the site for details and perhaps the tramp is your must do list.
