Thanks to our friends at UZABUS and Mt Ruapehu


Mt Ruapehu is great for sightseers as well as skiers and snowboarders. With the longest ski season on commercial ski fields in NZ, Mt Ruapehu’s Winter season runs through until the 25th October (snow permitting). Whakapapa is also open in Summer for sightseeing on the country's longest gondola, Sky Waka, where you glide high above the maunga, 2020m above sea level up to Knoll Ridge Chalet. 


For day trips, business functions, charters, overnight or for a week or ten days - call UZABUS - you can even request your favourite driver! Contact 0800 UZABUS (0800 892 287)
