kunanyi / Mt Wellington Explorer Bus COVID-19 information

kunanyi/Mt Wellington Explorer have developed a thorough COVID plan to ensure the safety and well being of our staff and passengers.
Our team is briefed and trained on the new requirements with regard to passenger safety and comfort, cleaning of busses, physical distancing and our new “stay at home” policy if they are feeling unwell.
Our buses are cleaned before, during and after touring. Our driver guides are all provided with several hospital grade disinfectant products, hand sanitiser for themselves and passengers and personal protective equipment.
All passengers are allocated the same seat during their tour and distancing measures have been put in place.
Our buses have undergone a deep clean and will do so regularly once back in operation.
We have put in place a number of COVID ready measures at the depot, our offices and our Brooke Street Pier ticket sales booth.

kunanyi/Mt Wellington Explorer Bus is the official shuttle bus for kunanyi/Mt Wellington. We’re also the only tour company with exclusive access to the mountain when Pinnacle Road is closed due to snow.

Friendly and helpful staff take your booking, then you are treated to an interesting and informative narrative up to the top of the mountain. The round trip takes about 2 hours with a 30 minute stop at the top of the summit. Fabulous and breathtaking views. Excellent service, value for money, and a fantastic experience. We will definitely go again!
Put this excursion at the top of your list!BLM1932

Really friendly driver John was fantastic and gave great commentary on the way up. The hop on hop off allowed us to get a 2 hour walk from the summit down and then catch the bus where we desired, very enjoyable! Thank you!

I have young kids and this provided us with the opportunity to bus to the summit and walk downhill to pick up the bus again lower down the mountain. Can’t wait to do the same with the bikes. Super friendly bus driver too! No more hitching rides - now I can use the timetables and bus.
A good excursionDavid T

These guys are the only ones who can go up the mountain when the road is closed to others. We had the mountain to ourselves. The crew were great and the bus was first class. If it's clear the view is amazing.
