The Rugby World Cup 2019 runs from September 20 to November 2, giving us over six weeks of non-stop rugby action.
We will be live-streaming all Rugby World Cup games. We think it’s important to give our guests the choice of watching any game they like, rather than limiting screening to major games only. It’s often the games of the underdogs that give us the most excitement.
It’s comforting to know that you won’t miss any World Cup action on your trip to Tongariro National Park. It’s been a cracker of a ski season so far, especially with the opening of the Sky Waka gondola. You don’t want to miss your chance to hit the slopes in fear of missing the World Cup. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.
You can catch the end of the epic ski season without missing any World Cup games.
The Rugby World Cup 2019 overlaps the winter and spring season here at Tongariro National Park which means the Tongariro Alpine Crossing will be open to unguided treks from October. This is a great time to tackle the crossing as ice is melting off the tracks but there is still plenty of snow sprinkled over the mountain peaks, making the experience truly magnificent.
Whether you’re an avid rugby fan or not, it’s an exciting experience to watch as teams battle head to head in their fight for the Webb Ellis Cup.
We relished in the victory of the All Blacks at Twickenham Stadium, London in 2015.
Will they bring it home again this year?
The Rugby World Cup 2019 is based in Tokyo which is currently only three hours behind us and will be four hours when NZ ticks over to daylight savings time on Sunday 29 September. With a manageable time difference, it’s much easier to mark the games you’d like to see and schedule them into your day.

As you can see, most games air at night in NZ time, allowing you to make the most of your days in Tongariro National Park.
