The unmarked rugged route up to Ruapehu’s Crater Lake (seven hours return) allows you to see the acidic lake up close. This moderate-to-difficult walk begins at Iwikau Village at the top of Bruce Rd. You can cut three hours off it by catching the chairlift from Whakapapa Ski Area.

Guided walks to Crater Lake are hosted by Safety & Mountaineering Guides along with local Ngāti Hikairo cultural guides, and run from mid-December to May, weather dependent.
