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.

Queenstown is paranoid about getting a bad rap for safety. As a result firms running activities such as the ziplines go to great lengths to ensure the safety of all patrons.

That said, this is a fun and at times exhilarating experience. The guides (Kevin and Fran) made sure all age groups and abilities were catered for, including giving everyone the option of trying new manoeuvres. No one was rushed.

I recommend the 6-line option if you have the time and money.

Hi GekkoSydney,

Thanks for coming zipping with us and for your 5-star review!

We are delighted to hear that you found your Ziptrek experience to be fun, exhilarating and safe. Our optional challenges on course (such as going upside down) give our guests the opportunity to push their boundaries and step even further out of their comfort zone. Our Moa 4 Line Tour (1.5-2 hours) is great for families and first-time zippers. Our Kea 6 Line Tour (2.5-3 hours), which include's the world's steepest tree-to-tree zipline, is perfect for those with an enhanced appetite for adventure!

Thanks again for your review and for recommending Ziptrek!

Kind regards,

The Ziptrek Crew

Thanks guys for a memorable trip and the great care shown to Wendy when she got a bit afraid.

Company makes safety a priority while ensuring respect is shown to New Zealand and the earth in general through their brief educational talks between zips.

Great company and exceptional guides.

We had an excellent time on the ziptrek tour. The zip lining was great fun. The guides were professional and good fun. Views from the treetops were amazing. Highly recommended.

The only strange thing is that you have to buy a separate ticket for the gondola. Also, there are no signs at the top of the gondola - you have to turn left and head about 100m into the forest. Presumably, there is some sort of disagreement between ziptrek and the gondola people - they should grow up and work together.

Hi Rowan_and_Ange,

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a 5 star review!

I am delighted to hear you had an excellent time zipping through the trees with us! We pride ourselves on our fantastic guides who are great at balancing both professionalism and fun and so it is always great to hear when this shines through.

Being a completely separate company to the Gondola we do not currently include the gondola ticket in our pricing. Lot's of our guests chose to walk up to us using the Tiki Trail which is a lovely hike through both native and Douglas Fir forestry, it takes about an hour and is a great way to get some exercise while on holiday and take in even more of Queenstown's unique views. Many guests also chose to do the Luge or buffet lunch/dinner while at the top of the gondola and if so they can combo it with their ticket which provides a great way of saving some money.

We are looking into getting some more signs up there in the near future but I hope you didn't incur any trouble finding us without them. We find most guests have little trouble as all of our agents are given clear instructions on how to direct guests to the check in Treehouse.

Thanks again for your great feedback and reccommending Ziptrek!

Kind regards,

The Ziptrek Team

My 15 year old daughter and I did this as we "missed out" on the Canyon Fox - the thing is we didn't really miss out. Asti, Sam and Fran were all fantastic and do Ziptrek proud. Kind, funny and reassuring. The Ziptrek experience was fantastic and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
