Oliver provided an absolutely smooth flight this afternoon for gorgeous views! I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend it to anyone considering it. I stopped by and was able to go with another couple girls that were going up in less than an hour! Thank you, again, Oliver!

This was a major highlight of our trip to New Zealand. The scenery on this flight was so breathtaking I had no words to describe it! The pilot was fantastic, very professional and knowledgeable about the park, its history and heritage. Months later, I am still awestruck at my photographs from the flight. I highly recommend doing this flight early... More

If you don't have time to hike throught the park, this is the best way for you to admire the amazing views of the volcanos! The plane ride is already an experience itself and the pilot.. the best!! Made the most of the ride with his explanations and great sense of humor! Total worth for the money paid!

Brilliantly clear views of the three mountains in the Tongariro National Park World Heritage area. No problem for the 4 seater Cessna to get close to the volcanoes, and give us an amazing view of the Chateau, lakes and amazing landscapes of this rugged countryside. Thanks Oliver, the flight was amazing!

The flight was absolutely stunning. Oliver, our pilot, was highly professional and very knowledgeable. Oliver immediately created an atmosphere where we felt very safe and relaxed which made the flight even better. Flying around the volcanoes is the best way to explore them.

This trip was a spontaneous decision as we drove past - so glad that we stopped. It was a beautiful day and we had been enjoying the views as we drove through Tongariro National Park. The opportunity to fly over the volcano Mount Ruapehu (Mount Doom !) is a unique experience I will never forget. The pilots are all fantastic,... More

On our last morning in Tongariro National Park, we awoke to perfectly clear blue skies. We reached for the phone and booked a 9:30 am flight over the park with Mountain Air. Yes, it's pricey at $195 per person for 25 minutes, but when asked what the highlight of our trip to New Zealand was, both my daughter and I... More
