Check out the free interpretive app for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. It's just like taking a ranger with you in your pocket!

Anyone who has done the Tongariro Alpine Crossing can relate to marvelling at the sheer beauty and scale of the landscape and wondering why the Red Crater is red, the Emerald Lakes are just so, and whether or not the hot ground under your feet is likely to erupt from under you. So we have developed an app you can download for free and take with you, to help tell the unique stories of the awesome landscape of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.

Called the Pocket Ranger, the app provides stories, photos and video, maps, and safety messages for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, as well as providing information about the local area including accommodation, activities, transport, guiding and dining.

Download Pocket Ranger here. It was developed by DOC and Project Tongariro.
