Tongariro NP hikes - advise please!

Jump to last reply

We're planning two days (3 nights) in late November for day hikes in Tongariro NP. We usually double the time estimates for hikes. Our handicapped hiker is able to tackle a lot, but he isn't fast - and we like to stop and look at things. The "double" time estimates keeps us out of trouble. We're looking for walks and day hikes that are 4 hours or less. We plan to stick to "Moderate" or easier level hikes. We don't need well formed trails, but miles of very uneven rocky surfaces would be tough. We won't be tackling the Tongariro Crossing hike!

On the Park website, there are a number of walks and short hikes that meet our criteria. My questions for those who have hiked in Tongariro: What are your favorite short hikes? Ones you wish you had skipped? And which village is a good base for our 3 nights? We'll be staying in a small hotel/B&B/apartment/back packers type place, not camping.

We need a bit of advise about our North Island itinerary too, but I'll make that a separate post.

Thanks!
