Two Swiss backpackers reported missing after attempting the Tongariro Alpine Crossing have been found safe and well.

There were concerns for Simon Oesch and Miriam Haggmann, who left from Wellington to travel to the Central Plateau to complete the popular hiking route on Monday, but didn't check in afterwards.

On Wednesday morning, police said the pair had made contact with friends and family and were safe.
