VLOG: Tongariro Alpine Crossing

New Zealand’s oldest national park and a dual World Heritage Site.  The Tongariro National Park is rich in both cultural identity and dramatic, awe-inspiring natural scenery. Unique landforms, including the volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe (aka Mount Doom), Tongariro and Ruapehu ensure the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is considered a world-renowned trek.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is heralded as the best one-day trek available in New Zealand, while others say it ranks among the top ten single-day treks in the world.
We completed the 19.4-kilometre journey and can tell you that the climbs are steep and the weather unpredictable, though worth it in every aspect.
