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.

Could not think of a better way to get down a hill, was a great informative journey though the treetops. A well designed experience that helped understand more about sustainable enjoyment of the environment. Couldn't fault a thing!

I cannot stop thinking about the final zip line on the kea tour. It was so so much fun. If you are tossing up between going on the 4-line tour or the 6-line, just fork out that teensy bit more and do it!!
Our guides Tom and Henri were "on" from the second we arrived at the meeting tree. Both were very funny, knowledgable about the local area and kept the fun vibes going for the whole tour, while staying professional. Great tour!

We would just like to say thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We continuously have guest complete our Moa 4 line tour who wish they had done the Kea 6 line tour!! Great advised for anyone who is on the fence about which one to do.

We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your Ziptrek tour, in particular our last zipline on the Kea 6 line tour. Its by far the most exhilarating!!! That line is the world steepest tree to tree zipline descending 30 storeys are reaching speeds of up to 70kmh it's no wonder you can't stop thinking about it.

I will definitely be passing on your positive comments to Tom and Henri, they will be very pleased to hear that you felt their fun vibes the whole tour.

Hope you enjoyed your time in Queenstown also hope to see you in Queenstown again some day.

This was challenging and fun! Completed plenty of ziplines while travelling so was worried this would be abit boring but it was far from.
So many options for ziplines- upside down, leap of faith style exits and some super fast lines. Def recommend while up on the top of the mountain!

Nice way to start the height adventures in Queenstown. Did this before canyon swing and definitely eased my nerves! Also loved being able to swing upside down, and do the tricks. Nice easy activity for someone looking for a bit of adventure, but aren't quite ready for bungee or canyon swinging.
Only disappointment was the zip lines weren't long enough.
