Create an itinerary including Skyline Rotorua
Ascend Mount Ngongotaha at a leisurely pace with Skyline Rotorua, providing a scenic way to experience New Zealand's picturesque natural scenery. The gondola starts just a short walk northwest of town and offers visitors panoramic views of Lake Rotorua. Once at the top, explore a network of well-marked walking trails, lined with informative panels providing details about the area's rich natural world. If you're in for a swift descent, take one of several luge rides back down. Extend your visit at the top of the mountain by visiting the onsite restaurant or attractions like a zipline and the popular Skyswing, where you'll swoop 50 m (164 ft) above ground and reach speeds of up to 160 km/h (99 mph). Use our Rotorua trip planning app to add Skyline Rotorua and other attractions to your Rotorua vacation plans.

  • I love Skyline! The Luge was my favourite 😍! It was amazing! The gondola, chairlift, and Luge was nice! I suggest you go there
  • I love the mountain biking trails down the hill. Even if you are just a beginner, there is trails that are really easy like hipster. Mr black is awesome
  • My partner and I did the night luge and it was a lot of fun. The lines weren't too bad considering it was Easter weekend and it wasn't too cold. Just be prepared to have money for photos if you have a big group as they can get expensive.
  • This was the best way to spend the day with family and friends. I absolutely recommend the luge for a lot of fun. When COVID-19 lifts, please head to this attraction.
  • Have yearly Gondola card and use regularly. Amazing deal. Love the service and food. You need to be starving before having the lunch or evening meals at stratosphere as food is world class and lots of it. My wife and I regularly have lunch at the small cafe and can get discounts on all food and drink. A lovely fish meal is $13.00. Beat that in town!! Jelly beans are a treat too!. The ride is always fun as fallow deer graze below you and the views over the lake are great!! A well run outfit with walks, luge and many other activities with gift shop and wine tasting all run by dedicated friendly staff.
