THE VOLCANIC EXPLORER SCENIC FLIGHTS

Our most popular flight climbing to 10,000 feet over all three volcanoes in the Tongariro National Park including Mt Tongariro, Mt Ngauruhoe and to the summit of Mt Ruapehu viewing the active crater lake of Mt Ruapehu and Lord of the Rings sites.

This flight climbs to such a height that on a clear day you can see Mt Taranaki, Napier and great views towards Wellington! Departing from Chateau, Turangi or Taupo airports this flight not only takes you higher but gets you closer to the mountains and gives you longer flight time to enjoy 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 greater central north island.

For an extra spectacular flight, treat yourself to the 65 minute flight departing Taupo Airport. This flight includes flying over the beautiful Huka Falls and Wairakei geothermal area with a total flight time of 65 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 for flights. Flights leave on demand with a minimum of 2 adult fares, no age limit.
