Escape the masses on the Tongariro Winter Crossing
No matter if you’ve done it before or not, everyone’s heard of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing before. It’s the most popular and probably the most populated day tramp in New Zealand.
And rightly so! The Tongariro Crossing is an amazing volcanic experience from your first step all the way through to the finish line 20 kms down the track.
Now imagine yourself on this stunning day walk, without the masses of people you see in Summer and the mountains sugar-coated with snow. Munch on your packed lunch next to the warm Emerald Lakes, silently steaming in the cold air.
Because there is a good chance the tracks will be covered in ice and snow, you’ll need an experienced guide to ensure you stay safe during the Tongariro Winter Crossing. Depending on weather and conditions, you might even need crampons. But don’t worry. Even if it does sound intimidating, no alpine experience is needed for the Winter crossing. As long as you have reasonable fitness, you’ll be fine.
Your accommodation in Tongariro National Park Village
The Park Hotel is located in the heart of quiet Tongariro National Park Village. The village is about 40 minutes away from the Whakapapa ski field and just over an hour from Tūroa ski field.
At the Park Hotel, you’ll find a range of accommodation types which are ideal for couples, groups of friends and families. After a tiring day in the snow, you’ll love a soak and relax your muscles in one of the hotel’s outdoor spa pools.
The hotel has its own restaurant and bar for a relaxing apres snow mulled wine in front of the wood fire. They also offer breakfast in the morning.
The other popular bar in the village, Schnapps Bar, is only a few steps away from the hotel.
