Our shuttle will pick you up from the Park N Ride car park in National Park Village and take you directly to the Whakapapa Skifield on Mt Ruapehu to enjoy a day of snow play or sightseeing.

Return time is 3pm but may be changed on the day on request or by the driver dictated by weather conditions and availability.

Amazing. On-time pickup and enough time given to enjoy the full hike. Great safety advice in the beginning to make sure everything would be going well, especially when it comes to hiking the Tongariro Crossing in late autumn. One of the greatest experiences we've had in New Zealand.

Picked up at the time of outbound transport, smiling driver who knew how to give all the important information. We didn't have to wait long for the return transport. good experience for us
