Tongariro alpine crossing

Mount Ngauruhoe

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Howard! Iceland and New Zealand really are two of our favourite places. Fortunately we can visit Iceland multiple times because it’s quite close to the UK and we always have plenty to write about it.

      For New Zealand, we’re still playing catch up with some of the stuff we saw and experienced there in terms of writing and videos.

      Thanks again for reading our blog! Cheers.

    My first time reading about this lovely place. That is lake is spectacular, I want to be there and see it in person. At first the landscape (and volcano) looked a lot like Panama (Boquete) and then there came the snowy pictures. Not happening here but what beautiful sights. 😉 Nice post.

    Wow, your photos rock. I’d never even heard of the Tongariro alpine crossing but I guess that’s because I haven’t made it to New Zealand yet. You’ll probably catch me drinking white wine and sitting in hot springs … and then I’ll go for the hike.

    This hike looks like it would be right up our alley! We would absolutely love to do this! I love the scenery you found along the way, especially the red volcanic rock and the bright blue waters. Thanks for sharing about the hotel you stayed at–nice to know about the transportation there and back and it sounds like the hotel was a perfect choice!

        Thanks for sharing. You might like the Oregon Cascades too… especially Three Sisters Wilderness, one of my local haunts. I’ve also visited Colorado (Rocky Mountain NP) and New Mexico (hike up from Taos Ski area) and those places were rather amazing, too.

      Thank you so much, Carol!

      If he really enjoys hiking, then New Zealand is definitely the place for you. So many places to explore, including some well-known multiple day hikes. We would go back right now if we could 😉

    Since I was a little girl I always wanted to go to New Zealand. Still hasn’t happened. Your photos are amazing. I feel like I am right there with you. And what a hike. Absolutely fabulous!

    Awesome article; I’m finalizing a honeymoon to New Zealand this March and your recommendation on the Adventure Lodge is graciously noted! Thank you for the tip and I hope our experience is as great as yours was!
