Discover Tongariro National Park – a World Heritage site located on North Island and the oldest national park in New Zealand. It is home to three active volcanoes – Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu – as well as several Maori spiritual sites. Mount Ruapehu is known for its ski slopes that attract tourists during the winter months. The park is also a popular vacation destination during the summer months owing to its many hiking trails, the most famous one being the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. A birder’s paradise, the park is home to several species of birds, including the North Island brown kiwi, the North Island fernbird and the New Zealand falcon.
