Flat calm lake and clear blue skies. The weather could not have been better for our flight over the volcanoes. From take off to landing the experience was fantastic. Spectacular views of the erupting Tongariro - only possible from the air as the walking track is closed - and so close to the summit of Ruapehu that you felt you could reach out and touch it ! If you do anything in Taupo do this. Brilliant !!
