About
This fantastic evening option is ideally suited for tour groups and individuals to maximise a travel day to or from Tongariro National Park. This walk is also great for those who would like to experience the volcanic terrain but have limited time or fitness for the more strenuous full day treks. This is a superb way of experiencing the Tongariro National Park and enjoying this stunning time of day with sunset lighting up a majestic Alpine setting. The sunset tour is an easy 2 hours in amongst the Tongariro Volcanoes. We pick and choose the exact route to suit the level of ability for the group for example, if walking on a pathless track is too difficult, we can change the route to something easier. Your guide will talk about the area with their local knowledge of geology, volcanology and New Zealand cultural history.

This is a superb way of experiencing the Tongariro National Park and enjoying this stunning time of day. The sunset tour is an easy 2 hours in amongst the Tongariro Volcanoes. We pick and choose the exact route to suit the level of ability for the group for example, if walking on a pathless track is too difficult, we can change the route to something easier. The route is selected from one of the following: We walk for approximately 60 – 80 minutes before selecting the ideal spot to enjoy a glass of New Zealand bubbles as we watch the sunset. The preferred route is the Taranaki Falls loop track, other route options are a return trip starting on the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing track, return route out to sunset ridge or Meads Wall. Your guide will talk about the area with their local knowledge of geology, volcanology and New Zealand cultural history. A memorable way to see the National Park with sunset lighting up a majestic Alpine setting.

Our relatively short 2 and a half hour walk to the Taranaki Falls (aka Lotr, Gollum’s Pool) was comfortable and easy. Guided by Frank we learned about the terrain and many of the native plants lining our route... he was helpful and knowledgeable but didn’t bombard us with information. The Falls do not disappoint....amazing, even in the current prolonged dry spell.
As we came to the end of the walk we were rewarded with a spectacular sunset, suggested and hoped for in the walk’s description!
A really good experience! Would definite recommend!

Stuart was our guide and led us on the Silica Falls walk. It isn't a loop hike so we positioned his car on one end and ours on the other. We enjoyed the walk and all the information about area, plants, and history. We then drove to a different location to watch the sun set which was gorgeous.

Away from the maddening crowds, amazing 2 hour walk through the Tongariro National park. Knowledgeable guide, very good with kids - kept my 10 yr old engaged and interested. Flexible with timings up to a point and with good reason - we needed to be above the waterfall and with the vast empty spaces as the background at sunset. Being bathed in gold and red as the sun set was special....

We cannot recommend this walk highly enough.
This was a sunset walk to Tongariro Falls. Only a small group and the weather was lovely and clear.
Walk was not overly taxing and the falls, along with a glass of bubbly watching the sunset were both great.
Highlight for me was our guide, a very proud Maori, who was absolutely brilliant in giving details of his heritage and doing the Haka.
Fantastic.
