Treat yourself to a truly unique and unforgettable experience in New Zealand’s oldest national park with Tongariro Expeditions.
Tongariro Expeditions is the only operator from Taupo that offers multiple and direct services to the mountain in the morning.
We have multiple service times coming home from the mountain in the afternoon giving you less time waiting around for your bus. We also offer hire gear on our early bird service only.
Departure times from Taupo start from 5.30 to avoid the crowds and give you extra time options to hike to the summits. We also run a later bus at 6.30 for fast hikers that want less time on the track.For more details on the hike click Here
Once you booked your ticket you MUST call (073770435) the DAY BEFORE your planned trip to confirm pick up point eg accommodation.
Please note that we do not pick up North of the bridge that comes in to Taupo.
Please be waiting outside on the road side at least ten minutes before the bus is due so that you do not miss the bus. If you miss the bus there is no refund.***
