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.

We will never forget our time on Ziptrek. We were traveling with our young son and our two mothers everyone loved this activity. I wish we would have been able to do the 6-line but our son wasn't old enough. The guides made us feel very comfortable, especially Ashleigh. Our young son was flying through the air upside down starting on the second line! I tried but could only master the "flying dead turtle". It was wonderful. Look forward to coming back when our son is older so we can do the longer tour.

Hello Martha,

Thank you for your 5 star review. I am happy to hear that you had fun and found our interpretative-eco component to be educational. Our entire operation is based on sustainable practice and we use The Natural Step as a basis for this and find that even the most sustainable savvy come away with something.

Our Ziplines are all gravity fed therefore the speed you go will depend on the your weight. On the last line of our Kea 6 line tour guests can reach speeds up to 70km/hr, this line is also the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world!!!

Again thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review and we hope to see you again next time your in Queenstown.


The Ziptrek team.

So much fun for any age, all the lines are a little scary but a lot of fun. The guides Conor and Naomi were absolutely fantastic. Both great fun professional, informative and have a clear care for the environment and NZ conservation. An all round enjoyable and exciting experience for all the family. Bill and George :)

My boyfriend and I did the 6 line zip trek tour yesterday and it was probably the most fun we've had in a long time! Our tour guides Inge and Lily were so lovely and funny and clearly loved their jobs which made the experience so much fun. The lines are great and you feel safe every step of the way. It goes for a good 2.5 hours which makes it worth the money too, and a portion of what you pay goes to charity which is a nice touch. It is also quite informative with the tour guides giving the group information about the surrounding forest and environment in general. The only thing we thought could be changed was to include the gondola price with the ticket, as the gondola is $33 for an adult return trip which you have to pay to get up there, however you are technically only paying for one way because you zip down the mountain and finish at the bottom when doing the 6 line. Other than that it was an amazing experience and I would happily go and do it all over again! Thanks to the ladies for being fabulous tour guides :) highly recommend for all ages in all weather conditions!
