THE NORTHERN CIRCUIT VOLCANIC FLIGHT

A spectacular flight over Mt. Tongariro's craters, alpine lakes and classic shaped volcano of Mt Ngauruhoe, called 'Mt Doom' in The Lord of the Rings.

This awesome flight climbs to a height of 8300ft which gives you plenty of height to look down on the unique New Zealand landscape below. With 10 minutes of cruising time around the volcano cones and mountain tops there is ample time to take photos and absorb the breathtaking scenery beneath you! This flight also takes you over Lake Lake Taupo where you can get a birds eye view of the largest lake in New Zealand plus you are high enough to view the ranges and west of New Zealand.

Total flight time is 25 minutes. Our flights operate from 8.00 am, 7 days per week, weather permitting. Flights during summer operate until twilight. Bookings are preferable but not essential. Flights leave on demand with a minimum of 2 adult fares, no age limit.
