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.

Our family of five (kids aged 15, 12 & 10) did the Moa zip tour on Easter Saturday. With a couple of 'afraid of heights' kids we were wondering if we'd all even make it onto the first line!! Our guides were Martin & Nico - they were hands down awesome! Made our kids feel safe & comfortable. Our middle daughter who is generally overly cautious & frightened of heights conquered all her fears & came out wanting more. She took the challenges of zipping upside down & doing a trust fall head on & succeeded!! Martin & Nico were funny, entertaining & most importantly passionate about not only their jobs but about the environment & what the company stands for. I rate this as a must do when in Queenstown. We'll be back for sure!!

If you enjoy moving quickly through trees, suspended upside down, then this is a must. With six ziplines to enjoy, the Ziptrek ecotour was great fun. The team (Meg and Nicola) who took us through were really helpful and set those with a fear of height at ease. The views are fantastic on the way down and our cheers could be heard throughout the forest!

We enjoyed ourselves. We would do it again. It was a good build up in regards too thrill. We had so much fun and laughing with ash and Nicola. Great tour guides. Only down side is the guy at front desk gave us wrong information in regards to how long it'd take so our day was confused.

This was our first time zip lining and we were certainly not disappointed! Our guides, Kevin and Rhys, were very engaging and friendly. They made sure everyone had a lot of fun, and we were all comfortable throughout the whole experience. Our group was fairly small so it didn't feel crowded. We did the 4-line tour which was a great introduction to newbies, and we still got great views of Queenstown during the last line. Next time I will definitely do the 6-line.

Martin and Jess looked after our group, and provided us with a fun few hours ziplining through the forest. The tour includes discussion about sustainability which helps pass the time between stations. Good fun.
