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.

I did the big tour and enjoyed it a lot even it was a rainy day.
You can borrow rain clothes from them so you stay pretty dry.
The explanation of the eco system was really good and easy to understand.

You got the best experience, you got to experience virgin native rain forest in the rain! It's awesome to hear you enjoyed the Ultimate and liked listening to the conservation talks we do. Thank you for leaving us a review!

We went on the Ultimate Tour, which was about 4 hours from start to finish. It included various length and speed zip lines, suspension bridges, cliff walk, and a controlled descent. Our guides were Dan and Billy, they were very experienced, knowledgeable and also spent time telling us about the conservation work that’s being done in the forest.

It was really good fun, even for someone who is not a fan of heights, and it’s great to see a company going above and beyond in terms of conservation work. I would definitely recommend this trip!
