Winter is truly upon us, as shown by this wild weather the country has been experiencing.

That means Winter conditions are present on both the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit. This includes ice, snow, avalanche terrain and sub-zero temperatures. As winter conditions become established, it will be essential for hikers to at least:

1. know how to navigate if cloud or snow covers the marker poles and you cannot see them
2. know where avalanches are a risk and be able to rescue someone if an avalanche occurs
3. have the equipment and skills to prevent a slide on icy terrain
4. have the clothing for sub-zero temperatures and be able to survive if the weather gets worse.

Check out the winter section of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing for more information:

If you are still keen to experience the magic of Tongariro National Park this winter but lack the alpine skills, equipment, and experience necessary to do this; consider using a local guiding company or consider alternative tracks in the area.

And remember to always check the NIWA weather forecast before venturing out into Tongariro National Park:

Here's a weekend trip you won't forget in Tongariro National Park (that doesn't involve the Alpine Crossing!).

The walk from Whakapapa to Waihohonu takes you between two of New Zealand's most iconic mountains, and past wild mountain lakes and a beautiful waterfall.

GeoNet has released a Volcanic Activity Bulletin for Mt Ruapehu. You can read it here:

The Volcanic Alert Level remains at 2.

The area 2km from the centre of Te Wai ā-moe/Crater Lake remains closed to the public and concessionaires as a result of the increased risk of eruption at Mt Ruapehu.

Mount Tongariro – the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit – are not affected by increased volcanic unrest at Mt Ruapehu. All DOC tracks and huts in Tongariro National Park remain open.

Further information on volcanic risk at Mt Ruapehu can be found here:

You too can find solitude like this in Tongariro National Park. Here's how:


New to the app and just loaded up is the Marton Sash and Door (yes that is the name) on the Mountains to Sea Trail. Leaving from National Park, this historic gem is a good few hours out in the forest on a former timber tramline. It was pouring with rain when we did it but a wonderful lollipop like trail loop.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit – be prepared for winter conditions

With the changing seasons, it is important to be prepared for increased hazards and reduced facilities when hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit.
Date: 29 April 2021
It has been a great summer hiking season on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit – many kiwis have enjoyed the stunning weather in Tongariro, with New Zealanders enthusiastically exploring their own backyard in lieu of overseas travel.

Now autumn has arrived we are experiencing colder weather and fast changing conditions, DOC Tongariro Operations Manager Connie Norgate wants visitors to be aware there will be a reduction in facilities and services on track, including the removal of gas cooking facilities and hut-based rangers.

“The Great Walk season closes on 30 April, so services will be greatly reduced from now on and visitors need to be self-sufficient. Please make sure you plan and prepare before coming to Tongariro.

“As winter approaches and sub-zero temperatures, snow, and ice set in, alpine skills, experience, and equipment are essential to complete the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Tongariro Northern Circuit.”

Senior Constable Barry Shephard of Taupō Police says with temperatures dropping and day light hours reducing, the consequences of incidents on the track are much greater. “At this time of year, it’s often difficult to get helicopters to the scene of incidents, and rescues can become protracted efforts that not only pose serious risk to those who require assistance, but also to the rescuers who volunteer to assist.”

DOC and New Zealand Police want people to avoid getting caught out. Make sure you plan and prepare for your trip in Tongariro National Park and have a memorable experience – for the right reasons.

For more information on preparing for autumn and winter conditions see the Tongariro Alpine Crossing page, the Tongariro Northern Circuit page, or call into the Tongariro National Park Visitor Centre in Whakapapa Village.
