    • How to do the Tongariro Northern Circuit in 3 days/2 nights

      Tongariro National Park Jul 17, 2014 at 2:31 AM

      I am looking to do the Tongariro NC in January 2015 with my girlfriend. Both of us are moderately fit and have hiked before. After looking at various descriptions of the trek, I am not sure how to split it up. We don't want to rush things and are planning on spending 3 days/2 nights on the circuit, but we cannot do 4 days as this does not fit into our itinerary.

      So which huts should we book to have the best possible experience (longer distances on the easier parts of the trek, more time in the rough parts and enough time to take pictures/enjoy the most scenic parts?

      Thanks a lot in advance!

    • Transport options from Mangatepopo to Whakapapa Village

      Tongariro National Park Jul 19, 2014 at 7:00 AM

      Can somebody please advice on transport options from Mangatepopo to Whakapapa village in the Afternoon in January 2015. I am looking to cut the Northern Circle Hike one day short.

      Is there any public transport?
      If not - can I schedule a private transport that picks me up around 4/5pm?

      Thanks a lot

      How can I get from boat dock to Mount Maunganui?

      by lbeck Online Now Feb 11, 2008 at 12:41 PM

      Sorry to double-post. I posted this on the NZ site before I found that there is a site for Mount Maunganui.

      My wife and I will be on a Princess Cruise to NZ, along with 4 other couples. We have a friend who spent her teen years in Tauranga, NZ and she said that we shouldn't miss Mount Maunganui. We were looking for a short (1-3 mile) hike and she thinks that is doable. I Googled Mount Maunganui and I think she is talking about the mountain in the Manao (sp?) reserve.

      Princess doesn't have an excursion there, but we'll be a full say in Tauranga and I'm thinking of booking a trip there. Do any of you know anything about where the boat will dock and what kind of local transportation is available (tour buses etc.) that could take us from the ship to the Manao (sp?) reserve?
