Summer Scenic Chairlift Rides

You will be awestruck at the inspiring views and geological features when you take a scenic ride on two chairlifts to Knoll Ridge, NZ’s highest café. Sip on a latte or indulge in a glass of wine while you absorb the unlimted vista, hike the unique volcanic trails or learn about the history and stories of the maunga.

Ride two chairlifts over Mt Ruapehu’s striking volcanic terrain to an altitude of 2020 meters above sea level. Once there you can take in the breathtaking views of the Tongariro National Park; Mt Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngauruhoe.

Wear your comfortable walking shoes for this adventure, as you’ll be walking over an unformed path and possibly snow between the two chairlifts!  This is a leisurely ride suitable for the whole family. Lifts operate - 3.30pm daily (weather conditions permitting) except Christmas Day.
