Take to the skies and discover the dramatic volcanic landscape within the Tongariro National Park. Be in awe of steaming craters, historic lava flows and glistening glacial valleys before experiencing a remote wilderness landing, showcasing the beauty and serenity of the Rangitikei River.
Departing from Taupo airport, your pilot will afford you with glimpses of New Zealand's largest lake before heading south towards the impressive volcanoes of the World Heritage-listed Tongariro National Park. You'll lose track of time as you soar above an unparalleled landscape featuring Ruapehu’s steaming crater, vividly-coloured mineral lakes, historic lava flows, sparkling glacial valleys and dramatic volcanic formations, some of which can only be gazed upon from the air. Following this, your pilot will touch down in a remote wilderness location, nestled near the Rangitikei River. Soak in Mother Nature's blissful silence as you spend some time by the riverbed, before returning back to Taupo airport.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
