Tongariro Crossing

Tongariro Crossing

APRIL 1st, 2017

Join the Weight Loss Surgery team as we take on the Tongariro Crossing this April. With a varying degree of terrain and the infamous Devil's Staircase, this outing also offers stunning views along of one of New Zealand's most iconic outdoor adventure tracks.

A great goal to work on physical fitness, we advise those wishing to join us to pursue a training program like this one (click for link).


Accommodation: We have reserved a number of shared rooms on Friday and Saturday night at The Park Traveller’s Lodge, National Park. ($100 for the 2 nights) These rooms are twins (2 singles) and quads (a double and 2 singles) so if you wish to stay with our group, you need to be willing to share a room, possibly with someone you don’t know! (if you are a loud snorer, we do ask  that you consider these sleeping arrnagments when making your reservation with us!) 

Meals: we will be having a shared WLS friendly dinner both nights, cooked on-site in the communal kitchen ($35 per head covering both nights)

Transport: Bus to be booked by us for return transport to the Alpine Crossing ($35 per head return)

Total Cost: $150 per head.

Please note: Breakfast for Saturday/Sunday, Lunch and snacks for the crossing (Saturday) and transport to and from National Park will be each person’s own responsibility.

CONFIRMATION OF BOOKING: We require confirmation of your booking and your payment in full by Tuesday 28th February, 2017. We are expected to pay this to The Park Lodge by Wednesday March 1st, 2017. If we do not receive your payment by this date, we will not be able to guarantee any accommodation for you, and this will become your responsibility.
