Whakapapa is right in the middle of the North Island, an easy drive from Auckland, Wellington & most other North Island cities & towns. Head over for an easy short or long winter break!
Once you're in the region you'll find it well serviced by the local villages of National Park & Whakapapa Village. From Whakapapa Village you're only a short 6km drive or shuttle up a fully sealed road to the ski area - it's the easiest mountain road in NZ! Or head to Turangi or Taupo for a lakeside town experience a little further afield & serviced by our shuttles.
The closest airport to Whakapapa is Taupō's domestic airport.
