Ode to the mountains! – The magic of Mount Taranaki

Ode to the mountains! – The magic of Mount Taranaki

Mount Taranaki looms majestically over New Plymouth, on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island. The mythical mountain that is obscured from view most days of the year, shrouded by its own low-hanging clouds. But now it stood there, clearly visible, and beckoning in all its glory. I literally skidded to a halt when I saw it, and changed my course and planning there & then. It was calling me and I had to go.

Th√≥rsm√∂rk – Rj√ļpnafell and the hidden valley

Mount Rj√ļpnafell is one of the steepest mountains in the valley of Th√≥rsm√∂rk. It sits on the north side of the Kross√° river, and the walking track to the top is quite challenging. But you will be rewarded with sweeping views of glaciers and colourful folded mountain ranges all around. There’s also a sweet litte river valley hidden along the track below its slopes.

Th√≥rsm√∂rk – √ötig√∂nguh√∂f√įi and Hvann√°rgil canyon

√ötig√∂nguh√∂f√įi is that ridiculously steep mountain you see looming everywhere in √ě√≥rsm√∂rk and on the way down from Fimmv√∂r√įuh√°ls. Climbing it is as challenging as pronouncing its name… The impressive Hvann√°rgil canyon runs below its slopes and together they form a beautiful circuit, with jaw-dropping views from one end to the other. See how to get there, and combine this walk with Hvann√°rgil canyon or the lower part of the Fimmv√∂r√įuh√°ls route. Be prepared for some serious crawling up the rocks on either side!
