“A must do!!!”
Reviewed 6 days ago
NEW

This was so much fun!!! There are two options, a 4 line zip tour and a 6 line zip tour. The 6 line is more advanced but if you can do the first 4 then you can do the last two, and I recommend it. It's not as adrenaline pumping as I thought it would be, but a blast nonetheless.
Our zip guides were two females and they were great!! The views from the tree stands as well as the zip line are magnificent! Take a go pro.

“Winter wonderland!”
Reviewed 1 week ago
NEW

It was snowing at the start of my Kea 6-line tour in July. Having been warned to dress warmly, though, I was comfortable and able to enjoy the zip-lining through the snow. The scenery was spectacular, the guides were friendly and competent and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Having also zip-lined in Rotorua in the North Island, I can report that the Rotorua experience gives less spectacular views, but it is more educational in that the guides spend more time explaining, and demonstrating, the work being done to preserve and restore the environment. It's well and truly worth doing both tours.

“Great fun but very cold at this time of year”
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

This takes 3 hours from start to finish. It's great fun although a little slow because it takes so long to get every guest down each zip wire. We did the 6 line zip so that's an average of one every half an hour! And at this time of year that's a lot of standing around getting very cold!!

“Danni and Danny were great thanks”
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Our guides were lovely as easy our group of 9 including us. Our 10 year old loved it. Not a super adrenaline buzz but good fun especially for the kids . Nice concept of sustainability behind the tour. More stories of early settlers would be nice but that's just my gig. Thanks Danni and danny

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed 1 week ago

Had an amazing day with guides Danny and Jess, who put us all at ease, safety was paramount which relaxed everyone, and after the 1st tentative line they soon had us trying various positions travelling down the ziplines, Great fun while learning so much about the history and the environment. Glad we took the advice of the staff when we booked it to wrap up well, as it gets very cold in the shaded woods, A very pleasurable way to spend an afternoon, certainly gets the heart racing. Well done to all.
