The Best of Waiheke: Ziplining, Wine Tasting and Vineyard Lunch
From US$199.44
Overview
The sandy beaches, vineyards, and olive groves of Waiheke Island are a quick 40-minute ferry ride from Auckland. This tour combines an adrenaline-fuelled zipline experience with a wine tasting tour and a delicious lunch overlooking the vineyards, so you can enjoy incredible views of the island and discover the famous Waiheke wine region all in one day.
What to Expect
Arrive at Auckland Ferry Terminal for the 40-minute ride to Waiheke Island. From there, board a minivan to the zipline center, where your small group receives a safety briefing from a guide who sets you off on three flights.
Zipline over Waiheke Island’s valley and vineyards. Upon landing, follow an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) path to the visitor center.
Sate your appetite with a light lunch and wine tasting at Stonyridge Vineyard. You travel there by air-conditioned coach and join a larger group for your afternoon tour.
Follow lunch with a tour and tasting of award-winning olive oil at Rangihoua Estate.
Next up is Casita Miro Vineyard for wine sampling.
Your tour concludes at Mudbrick Vineyard where you sip wine overlooking Hauraki Gulf.
Your driver returns you for a late-afternoon ferry to Auckland. Alternatively, use your complimentary bus pass to explore the island on your own and return on a later ferry.

Wonderful way to see Waiheke

I loved this adventure. The zip-lining over vineyards was just beautiful, plus I was thrilled to hear about EcoZip's mission to preserve the forest. Each vineyard we visited was special in it's own way, with more stunning views, friendly locals, and great wine!

Hello, There are automatic stops on the zip, so you probably could do it. Thinking about zipping along at 60 MPH over tree tops, then abruptly stopping. Plus you will hike through the jungle a ways as you return. I believe... More

Yes. I think that you would be fine. Of course getting strapped into the zip would be a little tougher, but the brakes on them work without your effort. The walking for the wine tour might be a little more difficult, but it... More
