Twin Mountains & Combo Packages

Twin Mountains Package

Walk the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing, while being guided by the best at Adrift Outdoor Guided Adventures.  This breathtaking one-day walk offers a majestic landscape of recent resultant volcanic activity. There is a vast array of colours and textures created from sulfur, aluminum, silica, and many other mineral deposits released from within the earth’s crust. In summer, this track can be crowded and, where possible, we take our clients away from the masses, while making sure that the popular sights are still experienced. Another very unique option we offer that avoids the summer crowds is the pre-dawn departure trip. This walk has you on the top of Red Crater watching the sun rise in unique lighting and with the peaceful, still, quiet moments of the dawn.

THEN….

Enjoy an outstanding one-day walk to Ruapehu Crater Lake.  Mt Ruapehu is the largest of the three volcanoes and its last eruption was in 2007. Ruapehu’s crater holds about 10 million cubic metres of water with a layer of liquid sulfur lining the bottom. The lake changes colour from an amazing deep green to pale blue to solid dark grey depending on the crater’s temperature. Mt Ruapehu has eight small glaciers on its high flanks and they are the only glaciers in the North Island. Ruapehu has three ski-fields and usually a scenic chair-lift ride starts the walk off into the cool crisp air. The Ruapehu Crater Lake is not a poled or marked track and guides are strongly recommended – at Adrift we have this covered for you!
