From Scotland to the furthest possible place I could get to - New Zealand, the land of dreams! I had the opportunity to complete the Tongariro crossing a few times as I worked nearby. A definite highlight was hiking it in Winter - as soon as you put a pair of crampons on it feels way more adventurous and also there was no one else around. If anyone is a fan of LOTR, you should recognise the mountain behind me. Unfortunately there's no fiery chasm from whence it came up at the top... . . . #mtngauruhoe #newzealandgram #mothernature #mtdoom #nomeatathlete #hikingadventures #crampons #snowhike #winterhike #hikingtrails #girlswhoexplore #adventure #natureismychurch #mountain_world #landscape_lovers #beautiful_day #notthesaferouteuk #traveller #hungryandhumble #travel_captures #adventureclub #tongarirocrossing #nationalpark
Tongariro is by far the most popular national park in the North Island, attracting tens of thousands of skiers, walkers and trampers every year. The park centres around three active volcanoes: Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu, all of which are considered by local Maori to be sacred ancestors. In 1887 the chief of the local iwi Ngati Tuwharetoa, Horonuku Te Heuheu Tukino IV, gifted the peaks to the government as the basis for the country’s first national park. The mountains continue to play an important spiritual role for both Tuwharetoa and another iwi, Ngati Rangi. In recognition of their strong spiritual links to the volcanoes, in 1993 the park became the first to receive joint World Heritage Status for both its landscape and cultural values.#tongariro #tongarirocrossing #tongarironationalpark #mtruapehu
Hiking Tongariro was the highlight of my travels around the North Island.
Perfect weather for hiking! 😍 Look at the number of people doing the trek on that day! This is insane! 😱 Tongariro crossing is one of the most popular hikes in the country, definitely worth the visit if you haven't done it. Oh gosh, I remember I have to carry all the camera gears up and down make me sick. Hahahha Any photographers out there will know how it feels 😜 . . . #fujifilm #fujifilmnz #fujixseries #nzdphoto #dphoto #nzphotography #ignz #newzealand #newzealandvacations #hiking #tongarirocrossing #travel #travelphotography #purenz #beautifuldestinations #nzlandscape #beentheredonethat #trekking #volcanic #instagood #instagram

What a great weather-dependant spontaneous adventure this turned out to be. #tongarirocrossing
Up to 2000 people a day can walk the Tongariro crossing in summer so we strapped on some crampons and picked up an ice axe and skipped the line. Clear night skies and hard frosts made perfect bluebird conditions. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. Not one! Super cool!
Homemade bread for breakfast anyone? 🥖☕️
🇳🇿 We're back to New Zealand, and was at Tongariro Crossing that we had our first ice-hiking experience! It was snowing and freezing ... unfortunately we could not reach the summit due to weather conditions, but we did 14km of the 19km ⛰⛄️ - 🇧🇷 Estamos de We're back to New Zealand, and it was at Tongariro Crossing that we had our first ice-hiking experience! It was snowing and a freezing cold ... unfortunately we could not reach the top due to weather conditions, but we did 14km of the 19km pra Nova Zelandia, e foi no Tongariro Crossing que tivemos nossa primeira experiencia de hiking no gelo! Estava nevando e um frio de congelar... infelizmente nao conseguimos chegar ao topo, por condições climáticas, mas fizemos 14km dos 19km ⛰ ⛄️ - #tongarirocrossing #tongariro #tongarironationalpark #tongariroalpinecrossing #tongarirosummit #wintertongariro #snow #hiking #winter #winterhike #icehiking #discovernewzealand #northisland #alpineclimbing #snowday #summit #climbthemountain

Out on a long cold journey. 😁 This is my happy place.What's yours???
We entered the valley as we walked away from Mordor. No, but seriously the Tongariro Crossing was one of the more exciting hikes I did. When me and my amazing hiking buddies arrived to the base of the mountain the whole thing was covered in clouds and fog. We continued our trek anyway as weather promised to be nicer. And man did we get lucky, as soon as we began to ascend to the very top all the clouds and fog rolled out leaving epic views. The mountain in the background is called Mt Ngauruhoe and it is famously known for being mordor in the LOTR films, but among locals this stratovolcano is very sacred, hence why you can't actually climb to Mordor. If you go to New Zeland and get the chance to scale this mountain trek, do it! (When the weather permits!! Safety first). #tongarirocrossing #mordor #greatweather #mtngauruhoe

It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. #happytravels #dreamscometrue #tongariro #tongarirocrossing #tongarironationalpark #mountngauruhoe #mountdoom 🌋 #taupo #newzealand 🇳🇿 #lordoftherings #simplywalkingintomordor #boromirthetravelagent

Mal kurz Mordor durchwandert, den Schicksalberg erklommen und Mittelerde gerettet. Was man halt an einem Samstag morgen so in Neuseeland macht. #throwbacksaturday #newzealand #neuseeland #volcano #tongarirocrossing #tongariro #hiking #hikingadventures #panorama #landscape #landscapephotography #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel #sportblogger #wandern #scenery #earthporn #mordor #mountdoom
Its almost summer which means it's the best time to do Tongariro Alpine Crossing 🙌 . Need more info? Check our blog post for tips! Link in bio. . Done the crossing already? What was your favorite part?! . 📸 Tongariro Alpine Crossing
🎵 These are the places you will find me hiding, these are the places I will always go 🎵
12.1 mile Tongariro Alpine Crossing on New Zealand’s north island. This duel world heritage site is consistently ranked as one of the top day hikes in the world. The volcanic activity brings the trail to life with sulphuric discharge and noxious gas present at every turn. Yup, that is Mt. Doom (LOTR) in the back and 40 mph wind on our faces. We definitely earned the notch on our world traveling belt on this day!
Tongariro National Park, on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, with Emerald Lakes, Mt Ngauruhoe/Doom and Red Crater. Just amazing 😍 #newzealand #northislandnz #tongarironationalpark #tongarirocrossing #tongariro #emeraldlakesnz #ngauruhoe
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is voted one of the top 10 hikes in the world! Situated in the north island of New Zealand, this is a “must do” with views of volcanoes and emerald lakes. This is also Mount Doom from lord of the rings! Tip - Make sure you leave a couple of days either side. Reason being when the winds pick up, it tends to be cancelled. This way you can hopefully do it the next day 😉🤓🙌 - - 📍Tongariro crossing, New Zealand 📸 @jess_bilton #tropicalturtletravel
Егерь-гид Том, проводивший нас через горную тропу Тонгариро, проходил этот маршрут около 200 раз. Из них всего два раза местные маори разрешили ему проложить путь на спуск через их священные земли. Нам повезло, и третья такая возможность для Тома обернулась для нас полями осоки 🌾 #tongarirocrossing #tongarironationalpark #hiking #travelling #carex
