Tongariro National Park

42nd Traverse

The 42 Traverse is one of the premier rides in the North Island. Renowned for the long and often rutted down-hills, the track will test even the most ardent kamikaze freak.

Also known as the Tongariro Forest Crossing, taking 46km (4-7 hours) on old logging tracks through remote native bush, the track surface varies from gravel to mud, some stream crossings, and there are inevitable up-hills.

The scenery is outstanding! From wide vistas of all three volcanoes to lush unspoiled New Zealand bush. This is a unique track, you can either enjoy the magnificent beauty with your family on a more relaxed and peaceful outing or with your hooning friends.

We will transport you from National Park Village to the start of the track. The track finishes at the Owhango Hotel from where you can contact us and relax and recover before being transported back to National Park Village.

After big storms it's worth checking with the Whakapapa Visitor Centre (phone 07 892 3729) that tracks are open.
