Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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.

Came here yesterday with my partner, sister and husband. Wasn't 100% sure what to expect but the minute I met the staff I was put at ease. Safety is there number 1 concern. I learned so much about nz wildlife that I didn't know before and all about the work they do to help conserve the natural habitat. All taught in a fun way. As for the sky lining all I can say is WOW it took my breath away, never been so exhilarated in my life it was truly awesome beyond words. Hugely recommend this to anyone. Thanks so much for such an amazing day.

This is a must do.
A beautiful blend of fun, learning about native Nz forests and stunning sceneries.
It was such a great tour and this company is pure and true to their corse. Allowing us to get up close and personal to Nz native trees and plants, whilst still enjoying the adrenaline thrill of the ziplines and magnificent scenery. It is a must do whether in or near Rotorua.
The guides were friendly and easy to get one with, you could see their passion for their job and their environmental corse.
Enjoy an adventure and support the NZ native animals and plants at the same time by going in this tour.

This is a great experience! I can see why it's won so many awards. Not only do you enjoy the thrill of ziplining around, but you also learn about their environmental efforts and the flora and fauna surrounding. I highly recommend this!!
