Backcountry huts and hiking tracks
There are eight serviced backcountry huts along two multi-day circuit hiking tracks. It is a fantastic experience going on an overnight hiking trip. Journey through dramatic (and active!) volcanic landscapes, glacial valleys, native beech forest, alpine meadows and emerald coloured lakes. This path winds its way past Mt Tongariro and Mt Ngauruhoe. Explore a World Heritage Area of natural and cultural significance.
