Overview
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.

It's been two weeks since I did it and I can still feel the adrenaline. It is an activity that everyone should try once in a lifetime. You feel like you're doing something extreme without feeling unsafe. And the view AMAZING. I got to learn more from the history of Queenstown and it's environment. Special thanks to Boe and Robyn (or Robbie!) who made my day unforgettable. I cannot wait to come back again!

Wonderful Guides! Managed 2 completely different couples brilliantly. Delivery of instructions, safety and ecotourism excellent. Very clear and engaging. Fantastic environment for my first go at zip-lining! and I am a chicken 🐣 . Beautiful area. Enjoyed being in the trees. Managed to push my own boundaries so I got a real thrill and a sense of achievement. Thank goodness there were no children in our group 😅 as they might have made me feel more like a Dodo than a chicken 😅

I must admit, I was pretty nervous to do this, but our guides Robbie and Lucy were so fantastic that they made it fun and exciting after the first zip line. You gotta do all 6, the finale at the end is so worth the trek to get to it. Wear good shoes.
