A huge thanks to Canopy Tours for hosting us last weekend. This is a truly unique experience to learn so much about New Zealand flora and fauna all while flying through the canopy on zip lines. Our guides were fantastic and always made us feel safe and had a wealth of information. It’s so great to hear about your conservation efforts also. This really is a must do while in Rotorua!!

The Rotorua Canopy Tour in the Dansey Forest was the highlight of my holiday in New Zealand! This was an experience that left me feeling brave and I learned so much about the conservation that is ongoing in New Zealand. Our tour guides, Cheynne and Shanyn were hilarious, fun and accommodating to people with height fears. They’re knowledge was extensive and they could answer any question you had! I could not recommend this activity more!! You won’t regret it! I wish I could do it again!

Thank Denver K

We had an incredible experience when we stayed a night in Rotorua. On a whim, we looked in to Roturua Canopy Tours at about 3PM after we got to our motel and looking for something to do. They had a few slots open and off we were with our equipment and guides to the forest. The zip lines are fun and safe, the guides are knowledgeable and have your safety in mind. The zip lines were incredible, especially over some parts of the deep forest, then for icing on the cake, the guides did some miraculous Snow White thing with a bird and some larvae. The bird would fly to their hands and eat right out of their hands! They even let us do it. The canopy tour was one of the highlights of our tour of New Zealand. Highly recommended if it's within budget and time. Conveniently located off the main road in Rotorua, across and down the street from the Rainbow Springs nature conservatory, across the street from the Rotorua Skyline.

Wow, thank you for taking the time to write such a well-thought and lovely review. It's awesome to hear you had such an incredible time and felt safe the whole time. Love the Snow White reference! You're pretty lucky to have fed one of the native birds, not everyone gets to do it so that's great! We're stoked your experience with us was one of your highlights of your tour of New Zealand, thank you!
