We would really like to tackle this hike? Is it possible to drive to the national park from Taupo? How long is the drive? Are there any group tours which commence from the national park? If so, what time do they depart?
How long does the hike take? I noticed one tour company advises that you start at 7am! Why!!!!??? This is too early in my opinion.
We will be making the hike on December 15th.
Looking forward to your replies.
