When is the best time to walk the Tongariro Crossing?
This one day walk can be done year-round although the most popular time to do it is between November and April, during the summer months. Tackled during the winter months between July and September the scenery can be spectacular although much of the track is covered in snow and ice so a mountain guide is recommended.
The weather at any time of the year can be unpredictable and this can, of course, affect visibility and views. During peak season around 1,000 people can embark on the hike each day so pre-booking is advisable.
