Explore the Stunning Tongariro National Park

Explore the stunning Tongariro National Park with Foris Eco-tours. We travel to quiet corners of the park, take in stunning scenery, and learn about the rare alpine life and geology of one of the most dynamic environments on Earth.

We spend the day exploring NZ’s dual-listed World Heritage Site park. We craft a day walk to suit you, including the best scenery, stunning waterfalls, and spectacular geology. We go to places off the beaten track, avoid the Tongariro Crossing, and enjoy New Zealand’s first national park.

  • Lunch on route as day allows
