Attraction details
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.

My husband and I did the ziptrek ecotour in October 2015. We did the Moa tour which included all 6 zip lines and took 3 hours total. We had a great time. The zip lining was great fun. Each zip line was a little different, and you had a different experience each time. My favourite was the zipline where you get a beautiful view over Queenstown. The 6th zipline requires a 20 minute walk through the forest to get to the location. The tour leaders Dan and Dan (Welshie) were great! They were highly professional, organised, extremely personable (especially Welshie) and made the tour fun. It is an ecotour so you learn about ziptrek, Eco tourism and sustainability which was great. It gets cold up in the forest so wear warm clothes. 3
Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend.. Just try not to be the flying, dying turtle :)

THE STEEPEST ZIPLINE EVER! I went on the Kia ,six line course, with my ten year old daughter, we both had a blast of a time, although I wouldn't recommended it to the people that would rather keep their feet on the ground this sure is the place for the adventurous people out their! Juts a shout out to the amazingly nice instructors Steve and Ryse, with their amazingly funny jokes. This sure is a adventure that we are going to remember.

Me and my boyfriend did the Kea six line your. My boyfriend who is scared of heights actually had so much fun. Steve and Rhys was our tour guide and they made the tour extremely enjoyable and also gave us lots of information about Queenstown and many laughs from beginning to end.
The views are extremely beautiful whilst you zip line through the trees. And also they provide you with windbreakers and gloves if needed.
Definitely recommend this to everyone visiting Queenstown.

My wife had I did the 4 line tour in late September. The Zip Lining was fun and the views were amazing. The guides were fun and very friendly. We thought the incorporation of the Ecotour was good but could of been made better by having a New Zealander teach us about sustainability rather than someone from overseas. We also thought that for what we got the price was quite high.

Good Afternoon Simon N,

We would just like to say thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We're pleased to see that you enjoyed the zipline portion of the tour and the amazing views of Queenstown while you zipped through the Douglas Fir forest.

Ziptrek Ecotours now has 3 locations between New Zealand and Canada, all locations and staff, are passionate about teaching the important message of sustainability. For us is just as an important part of the tour as the Ziplines because without one or the other, neither would exist. I'm also happy that you found your guides to be fun and very friendly, our guides really enjoy what they do.

I'm sorry to hear that you felt the price did not reflective of the tour experience, possibly if you had done the Kea 6 line tour that included the world steepest tree to tree zipline would have suited you better.

Again thank you for your feedback.

Went on the 6 line tour with hubby. At all times, felt safe even though I am a little frightened of heights. Everything was explained and we had an awesome time.
