We currently have an exciting construction project underway at Whakapapa, with the brand new Sky Waka gondola set to open for the 2019 winter season. Because of the scale of this project, sadly we are unable to offer our usual activities this summer.
As it is a public road, the Bruce Road will be open any time weather conditions allow. Please note that if you drive up to Whakapapa, there will be large trucks assisting in construction and there are many areas that will be off limits, including car parks 5, 6, 7 and 8. If you do visit the maunga, please take care and follow all restrictions that have been put in place for your safety.
