Mt Ruapehu Crater Lake Guided Walk From Taupo


Join Adrift Tongariro on a guided hike to the top of Mt Ruapehu, the largest of the three volcanoes in Tongariro National Park. This is a great hike and does require a good level of fitness.

For those who like a manageable challenge, we offer a full day Ruapehu Guided Walk. Mt. Ruapehu is the highest (2797m) of the three active andesitic volcanoes in the Tongariro National Park. The last eruption on Mt. Ruapehu was in 2007. Join us for lunch on top of the North Island highest volcano from where you can gaze down into the geothermal waters of the crater lake. Please note this is not a track and is less stable walking than on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The walk begins at the Whakapapa Ski area at the top of the Bruce Road on Mt. Ruapehu. There may be an option of taking a chairlift up to Knoll Ridge cafe.
