Four Wheel Driving
Ruapehu has some great places for four-wheel driving. Whether you use your vehicle to get to your favourite camping or fishing spot, or to view the scenery and enjoy, there are many different places to choose from.
Enjoy but take care. If not driven carefully it's easy to damage fragile landscapes. It's essential that everyone using 4WDs, trail bikes, and other types of vehicles know how to drive with care for the environment and other recreationists.
