Leaving wine country we ventured further North to our third and most challenging stop so far - the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Voted one of the worlds best day hikes, a dual UNESCO heritage site and sacred land to the Maori it’s a 19.4km walk across two active volcanoes, giant lava fields, crater crossing, emerald lakes and ice fields - essentially a crazy geography trip. Considered a ‘challenging’ walk for the fittest of hikers we were a little worried about our own ability to cross it but despite being crazy tough in places we did it! Not only that we were the first in our group to complete it in 5hrs 50mins (it’s considered a 6-8 hour walk)!! Safe to say more wine was consumed that evening 😂🌎❄️🏔🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️ #newzealand #nz #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #dayhike #hiking #unesco #travel #travelling #vanlife #vanlifediaries #backpacking

Summit of Tongariro volcano. Sitting on the hot stone with steam having lunch. Relaxing and watching snow view. After summit is beautiful Emerald(green) lake and blue lake. #newzealand #tongariro #tongarironationalpark #tongariroalpinecrossing #tongarirocrossing #nomadjackchen #nomadlife #backpacking #backpacker #backpackerlife #backpackwithme #likemeback #followmenow #travelblog #travelnewzealand #bloglife #solotravel #solotraveler

We have finished our jobs and are back in vacation mode! Yesterday we completed the Tongariro Alpine Crossing to celebrate. Walking over multiple active volcanoes sure was a new experience for us. The wind was crisp at the top but as soon as we sat on the rocks we warmed right up from the geothermal heat. Truly an amazing hike! #jkdonz #tongariroalpinecrossing
Most famous tracking route in NZ. Tongariro alpine crossing.(7-8hrs walk) - part2 Too much beautiful and great sunny day for tracking but still too cold for me. #newzealand #tongariro #tongarironationalpark #tongariroalpinecrossing #tongarirocrossing #nomadjackchen #nomadlife #backpacking #backpacker #backpackerlife #backpackwithme #likemeback #followmenow #travelblog #travelnewzealand #bloglife #solotravel #solotraveler

und wenn dann alle sagen, du musst und du selbst denkst, du solltest, dann ist es vielleicht so, dass du gar nicht würdest, aber in Wahrheit könntest, wenn du nur wolltest . #tongariroalpinecrossing #nzl #macheinfach #pantooutdoor
Toen we besloten dat we de Tongariro Alpine Crossing gingen doen dacht ik dat we alleen maar 20km gingen hiken. Wat op zichzelf staand al zwaar is maar bij het woord “Alpine Crossing” was niet bij me opgekomen wat we de bergen gingen en beklimmen. Dat gingen we dus wel doen. Zwaar was het zeker en iets wat onverantwoord, maar het waard was het meer. Zou het ook zo weer doen. (Als de spierpijn is weggetrokken🙄) #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpacking #newzealand #hiking #mountain
I've been wanting to do this hike for nearly 3 years. The weather is notoriously difficult and high winds can cancel the walk. Fog can obscure the view or clouds can sit low hiding much of it. But we got incredibly lucky and had not a cloud in the sky for the whole day!!! It lived up to my expectations and was an incredible hike! - - - - - - - - - - #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #tongarironationalpark #tongarirocrossing #newzealandvacations #newzealandvacations #newzealand #nz #newzealandnorthisland #explorer #exploretheworld #adventuretime #adventure #wanderlust #ourcamplife #outdoors #takemoreadventures #keepitwild

The beautiful bright lakes on top of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Hiking up in the snow reaching this beautiful view.

You know how they say we become like the things we love? If it’s true, I hope I'm gettin' golden like the alpine grasses and brave like the giant volcano peaks I shout about every time I see them from the passenger side window. I hope to be as humble as the big blue lake we live on, who doesn’t need to be anything but a big blue lake, who has nothing to prove or nowhere to be. Who isn’t there to be looked at or appreciated, it is just there. To be. I know it won’t feel special and good, always. That it won’t always feel like something worth writing home about. But still, all the things I love, I hope I’m becoming.

Berg beklimmen ✅ ⠀ ⠀ OMG! wat was dit vét!!!! zo’n berg beklimmen hè, dat staat dus al heel erg lang op mijn lijstje, maar die kom je nou niet even 123 tegen. Het Tongariro National Park (en zn hoge jongens) schijnt een van de mooiste wandelingen van Nieuw-Zeeland te gaan. nou, hups, daar gingen we! 🏔📍 ⠀ ⠀ op onze Nikies & Allstars (tussen alle bergschoenen en klimstokken) naar de 1886m hoge top op de 19,4km lange route. het áller mooiste en áller zwaarste wat ik ooit gedaan heb. de winter is hier net afgelopen dus bovenop ligt nog ijs & aan de voet loop je levend te verbranden, MAAAAR; deze ervaring neemt niemand mij meer af! stiekem word ik een héel klein beetje verliefd op dit land! 💙🌏💫💛 ⠀ ⠀ #visitnz #newzealand #tongariroalpinecrossing #morgenkaniknietmeerlopen #ontopoftheworld
