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.

This was the best experience we had during our 15 days in NZ. 1200 meters of zip lines broken into 6 zips (longest was about 400m with speeds around 70km) three bridge walks, a cool drop and some fantastic stair climbs into the canopy of a Virgin forest. This is the Ultimate package, which is definitely worth the extra money. You will be safe the whole way as you will be clipped into a safety harness which you can squeeze with all your might if it makes you feel more comfortable. Your zip dollars go to helping maintain the 250+ hectare forest and reducing NZ predators, so you can feel good about your experience in giving back to the island. If you are lucky enough to get Dashing Dan or Haley (The Comet... aka Haley's Comet) you are in for a special treat as their people skills, stories and enthusiasm are infectious. They will be adding additional double zipping capacity in about 2 weeks ! If flying through the canopy of a 1000 year old forest sounds like fun - you owe it to yourself to check this place out !
