If you really need convincing...

Start your adventure in the Howard’s Lodge shuttle and see all the National Park area has to offer! Whether biking or hiking is your jam, there’s an activity to suit you this summer.

Tongariro Crossing:

If two-wheeled treks aren’t your activity of choice, choose to be shuttled to the Tongariro Crossing. Hop on the shuttle, then start your walk through the vast and varied landscapes of the Tongariro Crossing.

Lonely Planet rates hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing as a life-changing experience not to be missed!

This world-famous day hike treks across active volcanoes, past emerald lakes and through stunning native bush. You’ll come across steaming vents and hot springs, old lava flows, beautiful water-filled explosion craters and stunning views. On clear days you can see Mount Taranaki in the west, Mount Ngauruhoe, the Kaimanawa Ranges, Lake Taupo and beyond.

Fisher’s Track:


2-3 Hours/Half Day

Grade 2

The Fisher’s track is 95% downhill and a stunning option for your biking adventures. You will start with a gradual uphill ride and then ride downhill through farmland and native bush, with views of Tongariro National Park through to Mt. Taranaki - it’s a breath-taking bike ride, in the best way!

T42 (42 Traverse):


4-7 Hours/Full Day

Grade 4

The 42 Traverse is one of the premier North Island bike rides. You will follow old logging paths through the Tongariro forest. With a combination of challenging uphill riding and long, rutted downhills, this track will test any biker - it’s not for the faint hearted!
