Tongariro National Park is near the centre of the North Island of New Zealand, and has some impressive scenery, including some active volcanoes and great waterfalls. Mt Ruapehu is the tallest mountain on the North Island and is a popular ski area in the winter, despite the fact it erupted just a few years back. Taranaki Falls Trail is a short, pleasant hike to a great waterfall, and you can stand behind the falls. The Tongariro Crossing, which has its own page on this site, is one of New Zealand's spectacular hiking trails or tracks.
