Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

Had a great time on the 6 line tour, even though it was raining! The tour guides were so friendly and made the experience so much fun! Would highly recommend this activity for anyone who doesn't want to try extreme things like a swing or bungy jump like me! This is a great alternative!

Had an awesome time, glad they challenged us to push our boundaries. Connie and Trudie were very helpful and fun, and we liked how they disassembled a complicated topic into four simple intents.
Highly encourage everyone to try upside down! ;)

Fantastic activity for a family of 5 with teenage children. Tom and Steve were excellent tour guides and very informative about the area and environment. Tom and Steve are a great team who looked after our group and was able to coax my youngest (who is afraid of heights) to enjoy the experience. Well done Tom and Steve!

Welshy and Matt did a great job providing us an adventure through the trees. Even on a rainy day fun was to be had.

As far as zip-lines go, this one was pretty tame and there should be a warning that you have to trek UP the hill once you've zipped your way down. Had we known that, I don't know if we would have done it, given we had a 69 year old with us. While she zipped fine, she REALLY struggled to get up the hill.

The guys who guided us were lovely - funny and attentive and made an otherwise tame zipline fun and interesting. Definitely a beginners zipline.

The Ecotour part of our experience was really educational and interesting. It's really great to see a business promoting that as part of the vision. Kudos for that.

Good Morning,

Thank you for providing us with your feedback. It is valued and an important component for us to always be improving.

We're glad you enjoyed the eco-interpretation of your tour and found it to be educational and interesting. For us is just as an important part of the tour as the Ziplines because without one or the other, neither would exist.

With the Moa 4 line tour there is an approximate 7 minute walk back to the tree house, where the tour starts and ends. I am disappointed to hear that a guest on your tour struggled with the walk, we do our best to provide (when possible) a driven lift back to the tree house if anyone is struggling or has pre-existing injuries.

Everyone's levels of adventure is different and its unfortunate that the Moa 4-line didn't meet your personal expectations. Possibly the Kea 6 line tour that includes the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world would have suited you better.

Again we truly appreciate your feedback.
