Mount Ruapehu New Zealand


Mount Ruapehu New Zealand
Mt Ruapehu, a constantly active volcano, is the highest mountain of the North Island and the destination of many skiers and snowboarders. Turoa and Whakapapa ski fields, both on each side of the mountain, have recently joined into one ski resort. Locals will tell you more about the eruption in 1995. The region itself includes the Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu mountains. During the warmer months of summer, hiking, kayaking, canoeing and jet boating through the breathtaking scenery is all possible.
