Due to an very enthousiastic pilot we had a special flight in Tongariro National park NZ. The good weather made oure trip even more worth while. I would recommend it to erveryone who has'nt the time or the opportunity to do the overland crossing.
We had a wonderful time up in the air together with our very enthusiastic pilot Ruven. Our two children (5 and 7) also loved it. The vulcanoes are very impressive. We certainly recommend it to everyone.
