Go Explore NZ - Tongariro National Park Guided Tour


Explore the dramatic scenery of the Tongariro national park. This tour will be guaranteed to take your breath away in both summer and winter. The Tongariro National Park is home to some of New Zealand’s most wild and rugged terrain.

Enjoy a ride up the Sky Waka, New Zealand’s most advanced Gondola. In summer, you will be treated to the rocky and wild terrain of the mountain which was created by volcanic activity many years ago. In Winter, Whakapapa Ski Field is fully operational with keen skiiers and boarders. Be treated to views of the snow-covered mountain as you ride up the gondola with the skiiers below you. At the top, you'll arrive at Knoll's Ridge cafe (NZ's Highest Altitude Cafe). Optional: choose to enjoy lunch or refreshments at Knoll's Ridge cafe. On the journey back to Taupo, we'll also get to check out some incredible waterfalls. This tour includes return transport from Taupo (Rotorua options available) as well as your admission up the Sky Waka.
