Do the Big Three!

Doing the Tongariro Crossing?

Why not allow an extra few of days in the area and do the 42 Traverse and the Whanganui River Journey as well…

Tongariro CrossingThe Tongariro Crossing is acknowledged as one of the finest one-day walks in the world, but it’s not the only gem in our crown. While the Whanganui River Journey is getting better known as one of the Department of Conservation’s 10 Great Walks, it only attracts one 10th of the numbers who walk the Tongariro Crossing during the season, and so offers a chance to experience a true wilderness experience on your own.

If you are short of time, or want to experience all of the Big Three adventures – we offer either an hour long “Power Paddle” or half day “Splash ‘n Dash” as well as the multi-day trips through the Whanganui National Park.

If you are into mountain biking, then the 42 Traverse is a must. It is also acknowledged as one of the best one-day rides in the North Island through the Tongariro Forest Park.

But don’t take our word for it – here is an independent review that lists all three activities in New Zealand’s top 10 classic adventures off the beaten track.

While we are the experts for your Whanganui River Journey, we recommend National Park Backpackers for Tongariro Crossing transport, and Howard’s Lodge for 42 Traverse bike hire and transport.
