Awesome time. Would thoroughly recommend this as the best environmental tourin NZ. Give it a go. Hope it becomes dry successful as a lot of work has been done to put Italy together. Very safe.

My husband and I tried out this new attraction last week and we were blown away. The zip lines and bridges were exhilerating, and the guides were fabulous. I'm not a great fan of heights but I felt very safe in their hands and the views and peace and quiet in the forest were wonderful. The trip is informative also... More

This is unlike any experience I have had in the New Zealand bush. I have spent plenty of time hunting and tramping throughout NZ but have never experienced the beauty of the wildernes in this way. By zipping through the canopy of native forest you get to see the bush in a totaly unique way. Not only are you up... More

PROs Seeing incredible, untouched NZ forest from a completely different perspective, magic! Thrill of the ziplines mixed with amazing views mixed with beautiful forest. Seeing the birdlife close up, had a wee Robin following us on the trail. Felt totally safe at all times and I'm a real heights wimp. Great price, especially considering how much you pay in Rotorua...

I really enjoyed the canopy tour experience and would recommend it to anyone. The zip line flight through the trees was exciting while still having time to appreciate the stunning forest being flown over. Standing in the tree platforms had a peacefulness of being where only birds have been before. The three hour tour was both fun and educational and... More

I really enjoyed this, and the structures and zip lines are fantastic, what an amazing effort! I also like the focus they are putting on pest eradication. Only problem was I kept forgetting to look at the view when zip lining as I was too busy going woohoo!

This is a pretty special way to check out the top of some NZ's amazing native bush...that is if you remember to look around while you are whizzing around through the trees!!!! Even when it's raining it's spectacular! The guides are fantastic. It's definitely one of the best eco-tourism activities that I have done!!!!

We were lucky enough to test this awesome new attraction, and I can highly recommend - you have to check it out! Its not very often you get the opportunity to spend a couple hours in the tree tops of New Zealands beautiful native bush.
