Chateau Tongariro (CS).jpg


5 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

This wonderful 5-day tour takes us on a summer adventure through the back country and around the four mountains of the north island, Mt Ruapehu, Mt Ngauruhoe & Mt Tongariro before venturing west to Mt Taranaki.

Sit back and relax as we journey via the scenic and historic Wanganui River Road route, passing through the small settlements of Athens, Ranana (London) and Jerusalem. Travelling onwards through Raetihi we arrive at Tongariro National Park, taking in the breathtaking views of the spectacular volcanic mountains, a place of extremes and surprises, where ancient lava flows and dense beech forests can be seen side by side.  Enjoying the timeless elegance in the heart of Tongariro National Park we stay in Whakapapa Village at the iconic Chateau Tongariro.

After our time enjoying the landscape and the majestic views from the Sky Waka Gondola, and the scenery around the Central Plateau, we venture on to the unspoilt Forgotten World Highway, stopping in quirky Whangamomona, before continuing onto the pretty coastal city of New Plymouth.

Taking in the sites of the beautiful Taranaki region, from museums, iconic landmarks, to stunning gardens, there is so much to see and do in this region, before heading home via the rugged Surf Highway and Whanganui.
