What to See and Do in
The Ruapehu region is defined by three volcanoes and the Tongariro World Heritage Park. Mt Ruapehu the largest of the three, Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro.
The walks in the area are spectacular with the world renown Tongariro Crossing which is a one day hike across alpine meadows to mountain summit and a surreal landscape of craters, coloured lakes and volcanic rock.
For mountain bikers, there are two NZ Cycle Trail Network Trails and several smaller cycle trails rich in native landscape and history. The area is popular for hunting, trout fishing and the two main North Island ski fields are found here.
