Crossing the active volcanic mountains of Tongariro which can erupt at any point of time and experiencing rapid weather changes while walking by surreal scenery of vivid lakes with different contrasts and ancient lava flows kept me in a state of constant wowing with amazement. Definitely one of the coolest places I have ever been. #EarthOrMars ? #tongariroalpinecrossing #discovernewzealand #beautyoftheworld #beautifulnz
Mister Charlie you did very well during these few last days in the wildlife of New-Zealand 👍🏻👍🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻 #tongariroalpinecrossing #hikefriends #campingbuddies
The attempt to cross Mt Doom was beset with obstacles. What with the sudden climate change due to cyclone Gita, the last minute cancellation of our shuttle, the 1-8 degrees celsius temperature warning up in the mountains, and the heavy rain that was to fall early morning. We were determined to follow Frodor's footsteps and here we are, thrown to our own devices. And oh what great weather it was - mild sunshine and chilly winds were just right to soothe our perspiration from the 6 hr trek. #lotr #tongariroalpinecrossing #fandom #footstepsoffrodor #trek
Nytt avsnitt! Vandra på Nya Zeeland! Långvandring är farligt – men kanske inte på det sätt du tror... I avsnitt 27 har vi bjudit in Helena Olmås @helenateodora som liksom vår bisittare och gäst Mats Andrén @matsandren gillar att vandra långa sträckor. 2015 startade Helena från norra änden av Nya Zeeland för att under fyra månader långsamt men målmedvetet färdas längs vandringsleden Te Araroa ända ner till Nya Zeelands sydspets. Helena och Mats utbyter erfarenheter och tips från sina långvandringar och vi ägnar en stund åt att reflektera över hur långsamt resande i allmänhet – och långvandringar i synnerhet – kan göra under för oss stressade nutidsmänniskor. Och det är beroendeframkallande… #turoretur #podcast #teararoa #teararoatrail #hiking #vandring #svenskaresebloggar #nyazeeland #tongariroalpinecrossing #tongariro
✧ Can you spot the people climbing up the red summit crater?! 😉 And yes, this is ‘Mount Doom’! ✧ We have other exciting news today though! I’ve just completed my PADI Open Water Diver course, and Taylor’s finished his Advanced Open Water course! Can I get a HELL YES! 🙌 ✧ HAVE YOU EVER SCUBA DIVED? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below! If you’re curious about it but deep down a little scared, you should read my experience below. 😉 ✧ I’ll be completely honest here: I didn’t know if I could do it. While Taylor is a fish, I am... the total opposite of that. 😂 Generally fearful of the ocean and don’t go underwater without sputtering and coming back up quickly. I did an intro dive in Australia, and it was rushed to be honest — my ears were having trouble popping, and that hurt! But... this time, I took it nice and slow. Our first day was in the pool, learning a bunch of skills and getting used to breathing underwater. At first, I felt that bit of panic: “Oh god, what have I gotten myself into...” but stuck with it — and found myself actually enjoying it by the end of the day! I started instead to think of it as meditative, and moved my mindset away from fear to calmness. Now I’ve completed four dives in the ocean (up to 18m, and for about 35-45min each), and loved all of them! I want to go back for my advanced certificate as well. I couldn’t have done this without @bansdivingresort in Ko Tao, Thailand. My instructors, Lianne & Kelly, were nothing short of amazing. Patient, calm, and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. Endlessly grateful and excited to explore my new fishy skills. 🐠
Mt.Doom or for non Nerd People -> Mount Ngauruhoe (don’t ask me how you pronounce that correctly, but feel free to send me videos trying it :D) Its been a while since November, when i took this picture. It was the Night before the #tongariroalpinecrossing . I was kind of nervous ,20km walking was something i haven’t done in a while. My good friend @paul.f.p and i were standing outside on a small terrace of the Skotel in #whakapapa and had a beer. We where deeply engaged in a conversation when we suddenly realized this amazing sunset and upcoming stars on a unusual clear sky. If you are with me since the beginning, then you may know that i waited almost 3 weeks to get the perfect conditions for the crossing, and this moment the night before was alone worth it. As i was mostly an inpatient person, always in a hurry and driven to do something. at that night i was given a lesson in patience, and that its worth waiting for something. — PS.: If you made it that far!

Summers in Mordor
It was super windy, it was (partly) crowded but it was also fun and definetly worth every step! We had a good time walking through Mordor in 6 hours @helene_ttm @bettina_mayer @bleisefabian #newzealand #workandtravel #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #hiking #nature #hl_nz
⛰ “why, sometimes i’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast” 🌈 “have i gone mad?-i’m afraid so, you’re entirely bonkers.. but i’ll tell you a secret, all the best people are” -alice in wonderland, c.s lewis carroll 🌿 amazing views from tongariro crossing, what an adventure it was! 🐾 the 19.4km journey i had with you through the crossing was my joy and pleasure, @ramirofilgueira always the photographer, hardly photographed. amazing views with a lot of leg pain but worth every step 🌋 until our next adventure... 🌈 #nz #newzealand #tongariro #tongarirocrossing #tongarironationalpark #tongariroalpinecrossing #nature #breathtaking #amazing #scenic #mountains #volcano #bluesky #walk #friends #love #joy #뉴질랜드 #통가리로 #통가리로알파인크로싱 #자연 #데일리그램 #wander #wanderlust #adventure
And 20km later, tired but happy with lifelong memories of this wonderful trek. An absolute must-do in New Zealand! #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking
Red crater in the front, mount Ngauruhue in the middle and mount Ruapehu at the very back (with snow on the top) #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking #amazing
A few photos of the horrible north island of New Zealand... Ignore those who say the south island is better for nature. BOTH are amazing! #BackpackerDreams
After this freezing walk in the fog to go to the top, we were so thrilled to be able to see such amazing landscapes, this is definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Feeling so lucky and grateful 🙏 #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking #amazing
Finally, feeling hopeful, after waiting half an hour, we start seeing the wonderful landscapes surrounding us #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking
That's the part where we started to worry we may not see anything on the top of that trek... #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking
If this look like the landscape where Frodon was when he arrived in the Mordor, it's because it is! #globeflaneurs #newzealand #tongariroalpinecrossing #backpackers #tourdumonde #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #instatravel #travel #voyage #nature #trekking #mordor
