With over 25 years of experience on the mountains of the Central Plateau, Tongariro Expeditions is the longest running service provider for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Our convenient Tongariro Crossing shuttle service allows hikers to navigate this iconic trek at their own pace, ensuring a positive and stress-free experience.

Our Ketetahi Park N Ride service provides a safe and reliable way to begin your Tongariro Crossing journey, offering a one-way shuttle from your vehicle at the end of the hike to the start of the hike in the morning. By hiking your way back to your car, there is no time limit to your hike and no need to wait for a bus once you’ve reached the end.

Our Tongariro Crossing shuttle is available at a great price, with further discounts for large groups, seniors, students, and children. We also provide you with a map and information sheet that will give you confidence, local knowledge, and sound advice to keep you safe on the trek.

If you do not have a car, or want to sit back and enjoy the scenic drive, our return shuttles from Taupo and Turangi may be the right fit for you.
