Tongariro National Park

Jump to last reply

We will arrive by ferry from the SI in early March for 10 days in the NI. Tongariro NP looks beautiful and we'd like to experience it. Any recommendations for hikes other than the Tongariro Crossing? And what town is best to stay in for convenience of reaching the park?
We are a couple in our early 60's in good shape, though we live at sea level and it's hard to train for altitude.
We'd welcome other suggestions beyond the park for ways to experience the North Island.
Thanks.
