An Epic Day Hike in New ZealandIn good conditions, the Tongariro Crossing can take anywhere from about 5 hours if you’re really hoofing it, to 8 hours if you meander and stop to breathe on the tricky ascents and descents.
Budget more time if you want to summit additional peaks – though if you’re anything like me, you’d rather eat your own foot than add another ascent.
