Don't forget your camera! The views of Tongariro National Park from Sky Waka, NZ's largest gondola are spectacular.

Soak in the Epic Views

Take a ride on NZ's largest and most technically advanced gondola, Whakapapa's NEW state-of-the-art Sky Waka, to NZ's highest eateries at the Knoll Ridge Chalet. This spectacular ride takes you over striking volcanic terrain with views across the Tongariro National Park.

Enjoy a coffee or wine from the upstairs deck of Knoll Ridge, settle in for a buffet meal by one of the huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pinnacles, or grab a bite from the food alley downstairs. This incredible architectural award-winning chalet is an unmissable stop on your North Island itinerary.
