Overview
Savor the views and award-winning cuisine when you combine a scenic ride on the Skyline Rotorua Gondola with a buffet dinner at the Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar. Take a seat in your gondola cabin and float up the side of Mt. Ngongotaha, a dormant volcano with views of Lake Rotorua. Your buffet dinner includes international and seafood options.
What to Expect
Your journey starts by taking a ride in one of our 8 seater Gondola cabins up the side of the dormant volcano Mount Ngongotaha (487 metres above sea level).  There is so much to do at the top including taking in the best views of Rotorua.  We suggest you allow at least 2-3 hours to enjoy all Skyline Rotorua has to offer. 

Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar:

Enjoy award winning dining at Skyline Rotorua’ Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar.  Rotorua’ best dining experience features a stunning array of freshly prepared buffet and cooked to order dishes highlighting locally sourced seafood, meat and produce.

Good!

Buffet food selection was good and the customer service is excellent, however some of their meats were quite gummy. For me, a bit pricey but better than Fortuna in Auckland.
