The best view of Mt Ruapehu ever! We took the hour long trip to see Mount Ruapehu, and it was an excellent trip. Clear skies helped us get a 250km view all the way to Mt Taranaki. Watching skiers like tiny ants on the ski fields was fascinating. Very good pilot - informative, interesting and considerate. Loved every minute. Well worth it as a treat or present.
