Owner description: Opened in August 2012. Explore the ancient forest of the Mamaku Plateau 10 minutes from Rotorua on New Zealand's only native forest zipline canopy tours. In small groups of up to ten people you will be accompanied by two highly trained guides who will teach you about the rare New Zealand flora and fauna and the conservation efforts to protect them. Every plant and tree species you see, you will not see in any other country on earth!! There are two unique eco-tour experiences to choose from - the award winning 3 hour Original Canopy Tour built and opened in 2012 includes tree platforms up to 22 metres above the forest floor, 6 ziplines and 2 tree to tree swing bridges. The 3.5 hour Ultimate Canopy Tour is even longer, faster and more spectacular featuring a suspended cliff walkway, 1.2km of ziplines (the longest is 400m!), swing bridges, a controlled descent and an incredible spiral staircase.

What a fantastic time we had from the moment we meet Jen and Bec's we new it as was going to be fun! The zip lining was amazing, initially a bit nervous but after the first one you are away! We all ended up letting go and taking up the challenge our guides set to experience it upside down!
Wow didn't think I would do it, but so glad I did! A wonderful family experience and would highly recommend! Also love the talk about how they are working with the
department of conservation to eradicate pests and that some of the cost we paid goes towards this project! The forest is simply gorgeous! The whole experience unforgettable. Thanks to our amazing guides and fantastic group! Fun had by all! I wanna go back and do the night tour!'

Our family of five (two adults and three children ages 9-13yrs) found this to be one of our top experiences in NZ. The guides Kris and Josh (?) were fun and motivated. Not only did we feel safe and excited about zip lining but the small details of the birdlife, fauna and conservation efforts made a big impression on us all. We really loved this trip and glad we made the side trip from Lake Taupo back to Auckland.

The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. It rained heaps during our zip lining but the rain actually enhanced the views of the rain forest. The zip lines were fun and I learned a bit about NZ culture.
