Paul Ratlidge

As the owner of Adventure HQ, I bring an accumulated experience in Tongaririo National Park of more than 40 years of adventures. This has only been interrupted by 3 years at University where I trained to be a Park Ranger and 1 year in the corporate world where I supplied health and safety services to Fletcher Challenge Forests in the Bay of Plenty.

In the past 20 years I have worked as a ski patroller and guide on Mt Ruapehu. Guided on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and been part of the mountain rescue services, had my own guiding business, ski and rental shop and shuttle service.

Now based in Taupo, Adventure HQ focuses on transporting people to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and Mt Ruapehu in the Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park.
