Soak up the stunning forest and valley views as you whizz through the forest canopy on this ziplining tour in Queenstown!

Tour Description

Feel the rush of zip lining through the native Queenstown forest with this awesome trip alongside the team from Ziptrek Ecotours!

You’ll strap in, clip on and enjoy the thrills of their awesome zip lining course up in the mountains surrounding Queenstown – with incredible views through the forest and over the valley itself.

Depending on how much zip lining you can handle there are two tours to choose from;

  • Moa = 4 lines over 2 hours
  • Kea = 6 lines over 3 hours

The Moa starts at Ziptreks treehouse base and has 4 lines, ending in a scenic walk back through the forest to base camp.

The Kea is the most popular and longest trip – about 3 hours – starting at the treehouse base and descends down the mountains back into Queenstown, finishing off by the Skyline Gondola base building.

It’s the ideal way to get back to nature and still get your buzz going!
