What To Expect

At your selected departure time you’re picked up from your hotel and transferred to the starting point for your zipline tour in the Rotorua forest, a protected ecosystem that your ticket price helps to preserve.

On arrival, it’s a gentle walk to the first platform, perched 72 feet above the forest floor. Before you launch into the canopy, expert guides provide safety gear and a briefing on what you can expect during your treetops adventure.

Before you shoot off into the tree canopy, learn about the region’s history and birdlife, and hear about steps the local tour operator is taking to care for the 500-year-old forest. Then enjoy aerial views as you zoom along six ziplines — the longest of which is 722 feet (220 meters) long — stopping at two suspended bridges in between.

Back on firm ground, finish your Rotorua zipline adventure with drop-off at your hotel.

Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Our guides, Jess and Mikaela, were highly entertaining and a wealth of knowledge as well as extremely competent with the ziplines, putting us all at ease. Their passion for conservation was contagious and the educational part of the experience was as enjoyable as 'flying' through the canopy! Would recommend this to EVERYONE and will do it again in a heartbeat.

Down to earth and yet transcendent


May 2023

I enjoyed our guides, Phoebe and Andrew - their professionalism combined with humour, anecdote, environmental education, zaniness, and reassurance. The environmental consciousness of the company is inspirational. The experience of walking through ancient forest and ziplining across the canopy is almost spiritual. Highly recommended.

Forest Adventure With Great Guides


Apr 2023

This was my first zip line experience and it was just wonderful. Guides Vincent and Megan dispelled any possible fears. Clearly, safety is a huge priority with this company. The repartee between the guides and with our group was infectious. Pure fun. An unexpected benefit was that we learned a great deal about the Forest, it’s natural challenges and the valiant efforts to preserve it. Everyone in our group of ten left smiling and grateful for the experience. Kudos!

This was a wonderful end to my New Zealand trip. The guides were funny and knowledgeable about the animals and the forest. The whole tour was just a lot of fun, you felt safe and were therefore able to enjoy the experience to the fullest. Time literally flew by. I also really appreciated that part of the money for the ticket goes into protecting this wonderful forest.

Tour all around best thing we did in NZ. Guides were amazing (Jess and Andrew you guys rock!). Knowledgeable about the forest ecosystem and hilarious. Also we were really nervous about my 70 year old mom doing the tour with not the greatest knees.. They went out of their way for her and she had an absolute blast! If we ever get the chance to do it again we would go for longer!! Thanks a ton.
