Sky Waka Gondola and Raft
This year, bring your family along to experience two of the top family activities in the Taupo and Ruapehu districts.
Firstly, you can ride the new Sky Waka Gondola on Mt Ruapehu. This amazing 1.8 km ride is unmissable!
Secondly, you can experience our best rated family rafting trip on the Tongariro – our Grade 2 Family Floats adventure. Click here for trip inclusions and departure times.
So you can mix snow and white water to have the ultimate family adventure!
This combo can be split over two days or completed in one full day if short on time.
Because of our exclusive partnership with Mount Ruapehu, we are able to offer the following discounted prices.
- Adult $129 (Save $19)
- Child $95 (Save $19)
The Family Float Adventure is perfect for smaller children (aged 3+).
You’ll follow the river on this leisurely 1.5 hour trip down the soft, tumbling waters of the Lower Tongariro.
The magic of rafting comes alive for first time rafters, those who prefer a gentler pace and children.
You still get to paddle and there are some small rapids to navigate but nothing too wet or wild.
After your white water experience, you’ll then head to Mt Ruapehu’s Whakapapa Ski area, a scenic 45min drive from our base. At Mt Ruapehu you will enjoy a relaxing Gondola ride to the Knoll Ridge Chalet in the brand new Sky Waka.
