Whakapapa – ski adventure at one of the most active volcanos in New Zealand!
Solely the fact that you can spend your vacation skiing the flanks of an active volcano will make your holiday at the Mt Ruapehu in the Tongarino National Park on the New Zealand North Island an unforgettable experience! At the mountain stations of the lift facilities you can let your gaze wander across snow capped volcanic peaks, views that are beaten only by the landscape that lies in the west of Whakpapa. Fill your gaze with green hills that seem to roll into the ocean at the Westcoast enthroned only by the Mt Egmont Volcano that rises 2518 m above the ocean. This panorama will leave you breathless and it is not at all bothersome that skiing becomes secondary. Whakapap features great terrain especially for skilled skiers. Beginners and families however will long for easier terrain in the upper parts of the ski resort!
