We also offer this service for those wishing to do the track in reverse or just want to walk up as far as Red Crater and return to Mangatepopo.

Clients should be waiting at their accommodation 10 minutes before the requested pick up time. 

In consideration to other travelling clients, the shuttle will wait for clients a maximum of 5 minutes. If after that waiting period the client is not on board, the shuttle will leave. 

Our pick up times at the finish are tailored to suit our customers which is arranged on the day.  We want you to enjoy your time whilst Hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. No worries about missing your transport, or stress about being left behind. 

Sit back and enjoy your journey. We hope you will be delighted by your experience from start to finish.
