8. Tongariro Alpine Crossing
OK, so this one is pretty big for a natural wonder – a whole national park! However, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is rated as New Zealand’s best one day walk and one of the best in the world. What makes this so special is the number of natural wonders you will encounter on the 19.4km day walk.
From towering volcanoes to the turquoise coloured Emerald Lakes, there is no shortage of natural wonder on this walk. And of course, the national park is also home to the world-famous Mt Doom, made famous on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Lots of natural wonders for the price of one here!
