Select Date and Travellers

    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.
