Information

The best framed views of Lake Wakatipu can be experienced on an interpretive guided tour using flying foxes as low impact adventure access. Join us on a series of lines that traverse the forest in a way that will never be forgotten.

The latest thrill-seeking activity to hit Queenstown, Ziptrek Ecotours is a spectacular and exhilarating flying fox eco-adventure through the forest canopy, situated on Skyline Gondola hill.

Harness up and feel the wind in your face as you “Zziippp” down breath-taking flying foxes which traverse down the mountain tree to tree. Their experienced guides launch and receive you at each tree deck, so you are able to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Gaze at the spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable mountain range as the guides deliver light-hearted but interesting details on local history, myths, legends and ecological principals at each suspended tree-house.

Ziptrek Ecotours 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 or wanting the latest gripping eco-exhilaration, featuring the steepest tree to tree flying fox in the world.

Moa 4-Line Tour: The perfect starter to your adventure experience in Queenstown. The Moa comprises four flying foxes, starting and finishing at the top of Skyline Gondola. Moa is designed to start low and slow and gradually build your confidence as it gets progressively longer, higher and faster. All ages love the interaction this guided aerial tour has to offer. Also ask about our Twilight Tours!

Kea 6-Line Tour: Faster, longer and finishing with a flying fox ride that descends 30 storeys at speeds of up to 70kph, the Kea tour is a unique way to get down the mountain. This stunningly beautiful guided journey through ancient native beech forest comprises six breathtaking, tree to tree ziplines with outstanding alpine vistas; returning you to the bottom of gondola hill on a total high.

Fly through the air on up to six ziplines with guides - knowledge of the local area and nature. Great for families and those who do not want something as extreme as a bungy.

The 6-line tour is much fun. A nice experience and you get the steepest zip-line in the world!! It is a little bit expensive but that is Queenstown.

Staff was great, zip lines were heaps of fun.
The reason I am only giving this 5 stars is because of the price.
139 dollars for 4 zip lines which took us an hour in total and maybe a minute in total on all ziplines is not a good value.

signed up for the 6lines zipline. it was fun and definitely worth the money. however, it was quite a disappointment on the last zipline (claimed to be the steepest zipline), maybe because it was not to our expectation, thrill and exciting.
