Mountains to Mudpools

The mountains and the mudpools are two of New Zealand's great natural features. This week's SNO takes us on a journey between the nation's two most popular tourist centres, Queenstown (NZQN) and Rotorua (NZRO).

Flight time will vary depending on aircraft type. As a guide a B737 would take just over an hour and a high performance turboprop would take around 2 hours.

These routes are typically suited to A320, B737 aircraft and turboprops, but if you have another aircraft you want to bring, feel free to bring it along.
