The ride is spectacular in the summer months with stunning mountain views of Mount Ngauruhoe, Mount Tongariro, Mount Ruapehu, and if you're lucky you might get a glimpse of Mount Taranaki out on the west coast. The gondola travels from the Top of the Bruce base area directly to the Knoll Ridge Chalet. At the top, there is much to discover and be amazed by. Stretch your legs with a walk, check out the locally carved POU, and embrace some NZ culture or fill your belly with some delicious food. Purchase your Sky Waka passes on arrival on the mountain.
