World-Class Tongariro Crossing

While there are hundreds of different treks around New Zealand, the 19.4-kilometer Tongariro Crossing is possibly the most popular. It takes roughly eight hours to complete, and hikers need to be fit as it’s strenuous.

The crossing takes you through some dramatic volcanic landscapes, including blue lagoons, icy valleys, and impressive craters. Plus, it’s where the film crew for Lord of the Rings filmed the scenes in Mordor.
