Attraction details
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.

We went for the ultimate canopy tour, which is a bit longer and includes some much better raised platforms and zip lines. Not for those with a fear of heights not for folks who would struggle to climb a few flights of stairs, but by no means out of reach for someone who simply walks their dog and can manage some stairs. The pace is relaxed and the guides keep you informed about the trees and animals, how they are controlling the pests and so on. Just a brilliant four hours in the Forrest. Hire the go-pro with a selfy stick for lasting memories.
