About
Fly through the beech forests of Queenstown on a thrilling New Zealand zipline adventure that departs from the Skyline Gondola summit. The beginner option is ideal for families with kids age 6 and up, while the adrenaline-pumping Kereru course has two ziplines that finish with a 21-meter drop and the exciting Kea course is geared toward adventurous flyers with the world’s steepest zipline drop of 30 stories. Either way, eco guides ensure your safety so you can focus on the ride and spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu.

      I wouldn’t hesitate to go back! Excellence service from booking in office right through to the guides in the trees.
      Being new to the experience I was a tad bit nervous but our guides were extremely kind and respectful. They catered for all levels in the group and at no point were they anything but friendly and fun. The guides, Emily and Kahu, made all the difference. I would highly recommend this experience. As we moved through the trees we came across other Ziptrek groups and every other guide was smiling and friendly to their people. Thank you Emily and Kahu for making this not just achievable- but fun!

      Super fun!
      Zip lining is super fun and it feels really safe. We did the 2 zip lines and the drop. You get the thrill of falling; without actually falling and it’s something the whole family can do. We will definitely do this next time we visit.

      Xavier and Mo made us all feel so comfortable, confident and safe on our family trip (2 adults plus a 13 year old) on the Moa 4 line. They were the perfect amount of cheeky and professional. The lines were fun and the challenges added even more adventure. The information given was enjoyable to hear, not dull like some tours can be. Thanks so much guys! Will tell anyone headed to Queenstown to add you to the bucket list.

      Definitely one to do whilst in Queenstown.
      Great activity whilst in Queenstown. Xavier and Jamie looked after us and kept us safe and entertained the entire time. We completed the full 6 lines and it was awesome. A great day for my entire family, ages from 46 down to 6. They are also very passionate about conservation and preservation of their beautiful surroundings. Some great information about beautiful Queenstown and New Zealand. All in all a great day out.

      Great way to view Queenstown from the treetops
      Had a great time on the Kea Zipline course. The added challenges going upside down, backwards etc added to the fun and made for some excellent photos! Our guides Luce and Mak were so friendly, asking us about our time in New Zealand etc and was lovely to hear about their time in New Zealand as well. They were both very knowledgeable about the area and sustainability of the company which was great. A brilliant couple of hours spent in the trees!

      Fun zipline experience
      Visited October 2022. Great zipline experience through the trees. Chose to hike up via the Tiki Trail (only other way to get up is purchasing a separate ticket for the gondola). Friendly and knowledgable staff, and opportunities to do tricks on the lines. Great view out over Queenstown on one of the lines, and an awesome final line on the 6-line Kea tour.

      The views were simply amazing! A big thank you to our pleasant and professional tour guides for making our first attempt at zip lining, a memorable one. Your attention to safety details made us feel very safe right from the outset and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy this experience.

      Ziptrek Ecotours. A must do!!
      Had a ball. Great fun for 2.5 hours. Great guides and very professional and really exciting time all round. Easy to book and easy to get too either by walking up the hill or by gondola. The guides did a fantastic job and inspired confidence in a really fun way. I thoroughly recommend this operation.

      Great fun! Georgia and Mak were excellent and inspiring guides for the 4-line Moa trek that we went on! The environment is amazing and we learned more about the efforts across NZ in terms of sustainability and environment. Lovely outfit and really enjoyed the rides!

      Great fun for all the family. We did the Moa one with kids aged 6 and 7. The guides were friendly and informative. Be aware you need to be able to walk back up the hill at the end (my youngest struggled a bit)

    This was an awesome activity to do with our group of 6. It was fun for all physical abilities. All able to challenge themselves in different ways. The guides were very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience. We decided to upgrade our packages on the morning and the service of the lady on the phone was great, and was able to reschedule us for an hour later.
    Would recommend bringing a lot of warm layers as it does get cold.

    Kia ora Paige, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We love to hear when people have had an awesome experience out on tour with our Guides! And we certainly approve of the decision on upgrading, I'm sure no one regretted getting to zip the worlds steepest tree to tree zipline! Great advise to other readers about the layers, it certainly does get chilly, especially in the winter months so we encourage people to really rug up! Thanks again for the great feedback!

    It was really fun because they taught us how to do fun tricks like going upside down and going off the platform backwards. They also taught us how to ball up to go faster on the steepest zipline. I felt very safe and secure the whole time.

    The views were really stunning in some places, and it included some good information on the local environment and history, which I appreciated.

    There was quite a bit of wait time at each platform as we waited for the rest of the group. We were supposed to finish by 5 and we actually finished around 5:20, which made us rush a bit to our next activity, but overall not a big deal, especially since this was mostly due to two last minute sign ups to the group just as we were about to leave.

    Kia ora Josephine, Thanks for leaving us with your great feedback! I am delighted to hear you had a good time out on tour! Well done for getting upside down! It certainly makes fr a unique way to see the views as well as make it even more exhilarating. It is also great to know you appreciated the information the guides provided. They are pretty passionate about what they do and getting our guests engaged and interested in whats going on in the surrounding environment. There is some waiting between lines while the rest of the group get zipping but we hope that the surrounding views and information bards make more interesting. As well as cheering on (or laughing at!) other zippers! The full duration of our tours is 2.5 hours to 3 hours and so as you booked the 2.40 departure your tour finished within the allotted time frame. I hope you enjoyed your next activity and didn't have to run! Thanks again for your great review and we hope to see you again if you come back to QT! Kind regards, The Ziptrek Team

    Fun-tastic!
    Like many people, I have a fear of heights. Although nervous, I had a fun time zip lining for three hours through the tree-lined vista as we descended toward the town. The views of Queenstown never get tired. Our guides were excellent, sharing knowledge about the eco system, educating us about NZ and the lakes, birds, flora etc. We had a seven year old girl with us and she loved it! No fear what so ever!

    Do yourself a favour, sign up for this wonderful experience. You’ll have fun, meet lovely people, see amazing views and contribute to the eco initiatives!

    A thoroughly enjoyable 4 zip line ecotour. Hosts Marian, Joseph and Alex were true pros. Safe but excellent fun. Learned lots about conservation and ecology, and had a bunch of fun singing upside down on a zip line too with a magnificent backdrop of lake Wakapitu to boot

    Kia ora 111gerardn, Thank you so much for your amazing review! So glad to hear that you found our Moa 4-Line Tour to be thoroughly enjoyable! Our friendly Guest Services Agent Marion and professional Guides Joseph and Alex are great at what they do and love interacting with guests! It sounds like you really did make the most of our optional challenges, even combining two challenges together - singing and zipping upside down. Nice work! The backdrop of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables sure are magnificent and provide a great environment for learning about conservation and ecology! It's great to hear that you learned a lot from the eco talks and had a bunch of fun while doing so! Thanks for coming on tour with us and safe travels! The Ziptrek Team

    What an epic eco-adventure! A big thanks to Max, Cathy and the Ziptrek team for looking after us and giving our family a fun-filled experience.
    We loved the musicians playing from each of the treehouses on this special collaboration, a real teat to hear live music while still buzzing from the ride! The kids were fearless and couldn't wait to fly through the trees, a testament to the friendly and safety conscious guides. A super fun way to spend your day in Queenstown, we'd be up for another go!

    Was initially concerned at the high cost of this for a family of four but by the end we had spent 3 hours of fun in the beautiful scenery above Queenstown and it was worth every dollar. A huge thanks to Luca and Kate who were very patient with our group and always making it fun.
    The lines start off easy to get your confidence up and gradually get longer and faster. I never thought I would end up upside down facing backwards doing 70km/h through the trees but it was so much fun.
    Views of the lake and mountains are fantastic too.

    Easy to book, good prices options (2,4.6 ziplines), small groups and friendly professional staff. Each zip line stop gave time for a mini-talk about history and environment. Ziptrek is very green and environment conscious. Felt very safe even though we were beginners. Thoughts for first-timers (i) ZipTrek is not part of the Skyline business so there's no signage inside the Gondola building at the top (rather sad on Skyline's part) so DON'T carry on into the building but turn left through the glass doors to go outside as soon as you enter, then follow the signage to the left (or use your GPS); (ii) personal safety waiver must be signed online before arriving at the actual take-off point; (iii) read the instructions: hats, gloves, sturdy and warm footwear/clothing are important; (iv) the less luggage you have with you, the better (although there is a locked bin at the start for your hand/bag).

    Kia ora HelenJG786, Thank you for your excellent feedback, and for sharing a great photo of your experience with us! We're so glad to hear that you had fun with us and that you felt safe throughout the tour at the hands of our professional tour guides. The eco-education aspect is integral to the Ziptrek experience, therefore it is always great to hear when the message has been well received by our guests. Your review was not only great for us to read, but it was also very informative and included helpful details to any guests reading as well, thank you for this! Sorry to hear it was a bit tricky to find us. Skyline are doing some upgrades at the moment so there may have been a detour in place making it harder to see the signs. If you head out of the doors of the main building and go left you should come across a sign which will point you in the right direction. Thanks again for taking the time to leave us a review. If your back in town one day let us know, we'd love to have you out on tour again! The Ziptrek Team

    Expertly supervised - felt safe all the time.
    Great fun and spectacular scenery. The discussions about environment and sustainability and the group’s commitment to these issues was greatly appreciated.

    Went on the Kea Zip Line tour with my son and his girlfriend. 6 zip lines, accompanied by two guides who make sure you are safe. We were in a group of 11 people with each person taking turns to do each zip line and in total it took 3 hours. An enjoyable experience with great views, would recommend.

    It’s worth noting that their is a 20 minute walk between line 5 and 6 which is quite steep downwards and sensible walking shoes are recommended.

    Also Ziptech operates from the top of the mountain so unless you want a very long uphill walk you will need to purchase Gondola tickets to get up to the start point. The zip line finishes at the bottom.
