Shuttles To The Tongariro Crossing


We offer the cheapest summer shuttles for the Tongariro Crossing! We are a fully licensed NZTA passenger service and also approved by the NZ Department Of Conservation to use the mountain roads in the Tongariro National Park (click on the green 'Approved' image below to see what that means).

RETURN SHUTTLE ONLY $35 PER PERSON!!!

That's a massive 30% cheaper than the other Turangi shuttle companies and 45% cheaper than the Taupo shuttles!

We pick up from Lazy Dog Backpackers in the morning and drop you back there after the hike so you don't have to go anywhere or do anything, just get out of bed!

NO OTHER OPERATORS OFFER SHUTTLES AT THESE LOW PRICES

Please note the following:

  • * Our shuttles run during summer time only. This is usually the middle of September to early June but can vary depending on the weather. Winter hikes on the crossing require a guide and special hiking equipment that we do not offer. Please check in advance if you are not sure of the weather conditions.
  • * For customer safety reasons, our shuttle will not run if the weather is bad. This can include heavy rain or if the wind is above a certain level. Weather on the mountain is difficult to predict so we generally make the decision the day before travel. We are not able to guarantee weather conditions in advance.
  • * Our weather information comes from metservice.com. If the forecast is wrong then we may have to change the plans a bit but we will always try to get you there in good weather.
  • * We need a minimum of 2 people to run our shuttle. This usually isn't a problem as there are normally plenty of other guests that want to go but the minimum is always 2 people.
