Ruapehu Scenic Flights

See into the live craters of the sprawling Mount Tongariro, the symmetrical cone of Mount Ngauruhoe and the North Island’s largest mountain – Mount Ruapehu - and its emerald blue crater lake. Awe at the snow-capped mountains, pristine alpine lakes, untouched native bush, rivers and waterfalls. Spot skiers on Turoa and Whakapapa ski-fields – New Zealand’s largest ski resorts, and get a bird’s eye view of ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ filming sites.
