    • 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

      What kind of hawks are they?

      Wairarapa Sep 3, 2008 at 3:15 AM

      I was travelling by bus from Martinborough to Featherston this morning - and on that short journey I saw 3 hawks. I am wondering what type they are likely to be - or if perhaps they could be of several different types.

      No trains at the weekend?

      Martinborough Apr 9, 2008 at 5:59 AM

      I have been searching the train site - metlink - and it seems - to my horror - that there are no trains from Wellington to Featherstone with bus link to Martinborough on the weekends!!! Can someone confirm this? Thanks.

      I want to visit Martinbourough for a couple of days ...

      Martinborough Apr 9, 2008 at 4:51 AM

      ... with my aged mother who is not terribly mobile.

      We will be travelling by train and then bus from is it Featherstone? I'll have to check how all that works out.

      Thing is we need a cheap place to stay close to the centre, as we have no car, and she can't walk far.
      I am picking it would be cheaper mid week?

      If you can help, great. And thanks.
