Sky Waka Gondola @Tongariro Crossing Lodge Sky Waka Gondola @Tongariro Crossing Lodge


Journey through the clouds on a return trip (one ride up, one ride down) on the Sky Waka to the Knoll Ridge Chalet. Sightseeing passengers are not permitted to carry ski & ride equipment onto the gondola. Check the travel pack information for details about walks from the Knoll Ridge Chalet. Watch the sky watchvideo as it provides a clear view of the terrain and ease of the walking track. The gondola is spectacular, you are effortlessly whisked up the side of a massive mountain with 360-degree views through a glass gondola.

Floor to ceiling windows float visitors to a height of 2021 metres above sea level. This is a must do for all age groups.

Gondola highlights:

  • Look out for Tongariro National Park’s other impressive volcanoes, Tongariro and Ngaruahoe
  • Views include scenic shooting locations from the Lord of the Rings movies
  • No set boarding times: take the gondola up the mountain and back any time

Take the kids to the top: cut-price tickets for children aged 18 and under
