The crossing traverses the volcanic terrain of the multi-cratered active volcano Mt Tongariro, and is known to be one of the best 1-day hikes in the world.

The walk requires a moderate level of fitness and is 19.4km.

Join us for the climb, or sponsor one of our wonderful participants, and help bring transformation and hope to the lives of marginalised women and at-risk girls.

If poor weather prevents the crossing, participants will do the Tama Lakes walk instead.

Please note that this is a significant climb and a reasonable level of fitness is required. It may not be suitable for children (depending on fitness). Most participants benefit from doing some training before the climb!
