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 wife and I went to Queenstown with a group of 50+ and decided to have a go on the Ziptrek. We were introduced to our guides both called Danny and they explained what we would be doing. There were 10 in our group ranging from 6 to 54 yrs old. All safety equipment was explained to all of us and checked each time before being allowed to whizz down the flying fox. It was amazing being so high in the trees flying down the line and at all times feeling completely safe.
At each platform we were given a brief talk concerning the eco sustainability of the attraction and how we could all help the planet. I would strongly recommend it and is suitable for children.The ones with us had a ball flying upside down and screamimg heartily. We did the smaller tour which took 2 hrs so give yourself some time. Would be good if you could get a one way gondola ticket and walk the small distance down to the bottom at the end of the ride instead of the rather steep tramp back to the top of the gondola. Overall a BIG HIT !!!!

Hi Dave,

What an awesome review, thank you!

I am delighted to hear your varied group enjoyed being out on tour with us! We pride ourselves on our guides and they are especially great at balancing professionalism and safety while providing a fun and educational experience to people of all ages! And great that the kids were adventurous enough to try the optional challenges like going upside down!

We do get guests who chose to walk down to the bottom rather than catch the gondola but the 30 - 45 minute walk can be a bit much for some of our guests, especially if thy are still feeling a bit shaky from the ziplines!

Thank you again for your review!

Kind regards,

The Ziptrek Team

We all had a ball zipping along the Kea line. The 3 of us had Saphire and Nicola as our guides and I couldn’t recommend this activity highly enough. They were very entertaining/friendly, knowledgeable and professional the entire trip, which made it even more fun. Both our guides were able to answer any questions our group had about the environment and things to see/do in Queenstown. We recommend this to anyone looking for an afternoon of fun zipping through the trees.

Nico and Fran were excellent guides and it was good to hear how sustainably Ziptrek operates from construction to operation and investing profits into local and global environmental and social programmes. I'm not good with heights but they made it easy even for me to do the four Moa lines. We've got some great photo memories too. Thank you

My 8-year-old is a little adrenaline junkie, but she's too light/young for most of the more extreme activities that Queenstown has to offer. The Ziptrek 4-line tour was the exception. She and her big sister (and I, to be honest) had a fantastic time throwing ourselves off platforms and zipping between the trees. Some of the views were incredible, especially when you're zooming along at 50km/h upside down. Highly recommended!

Fun tour. You learn about the landscape and importance of being aware of how you affect the earth. Lines are good in length. They also have challenges (go upside down, spin, backwards, etc) which make each fun. Great, scenic views.
