Mount Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngauruhoe are all mountains on the central plateau of the North Island. Mt Ruapehu has chairlifts that you can go up to sight see in winter and summer (or you can drive up to look at the snow in winter). Ngauruhoe was used as Mount Doom in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films. There are helicopters and various other activities to do on these mountains.
Freedom Mobility client feedback: “You can drive up the mountains, or there’s a helicopter company (Heliview) that will fly you over. They were willing to lift me onto the chopper, and even take out the front seats, but in the end I couldn’t go due to the weather.” – Jasmine
