Scenic Flights

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

Mountain Air operates daily scenic fixed-wing flights from 8am to 5pm (weather permitting) over Tongariro National Park’s unique terrain. Summer flights are available up to dusk. Flights take in the volcanic craters of the three volcanoes (Tongariro, Ngauruhoe, and Ruapheu), the Emerald Lakes, Blue Lake, and the Tama Lakes. Bookings are preferable, but flights leave on demand and require a minimum of two people.
