Owner description: Ziptrek Ecotours is NZ's #1 Original Zipline tour and is a spectacular eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, situated on Skyline Gondola hill. Ziptrek runs all year round and is stunning whatever the weather. With two tours to choose from it is suitable for everyone, whether looking for an introduction into Queenstown adventure (Moa 4-Line Tour) or wanting the latest gripping eco-exhilaration (Kea 6-Line Tour) which includes the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world.

This is a fantastic activity for all ages. The guides (two per small-group tour, I believe) are fantastic, funny and keeps you entertained the whole time with humourous stories and some eco-friendly advice as well. Ziplining is fun and there are many great positions that you can do it in, which the guides diligently walk you through. Safety is a top priority and you feel and see the guides really practice that as they guide you from line to line. Highly recommended as a family activity.

My husband and I went on the Ziptrek Ecotour in March of 2015. We wanted to be adventurous while in New Zealand but didn't want to do anything TOO crazy, so we decided on zip lining. We opted for the final 6 line tour of the day. It was PERFECT! I'm so happy we decided to go with the 6 line instead of the 4. The extra two at the end are the best. Our guides said it was the longest tree-to-tree zip line in the world. And speaking of the guides, they were great! They gave us just enough Eco info to make it knowledgeable but not boring. I learned a few things along the way. Plus they were a ton of fun, teaching us how to go upside down, faster, slower, whatever you were comfortable with. We had such a great experience, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

My husband surprised me with the zip line thing and what a nice surprise it was. Our guides Irish Tess and Aussie Steve made it entertaining and the group we were with was just as amusing! Thanks for a fun afternoon whizzing through the trees.
