Join Ziptrek Ecotours for a spectacular and fun zipline adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, on Skyline Gondola Hill.
You will begin by meeting your guides, then being fitted with a harness and helmet before ziplining from treehouse to treehouse going all of the way to the bottom of Bob’s Peak mountain.
The ziplines are gravity fed, so you don’t have to worry about controlling your own speed – the guides take care of that. Instead, just take in the thrill of Ziplining in these stunning surroundings!
Two tour guides will accompany the minimum 2, maximum 10 guests per tour. There is one guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.
You will finish your tour at the base of the gondola in front of the Kiwi Birdlife Park.
The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment and local area including Maori mythology.

- 6 ziplines including the world’s steepest tree to tree zipline

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
We love an environmentally responsible tourism operator, not only do they focus on educating their visitors about the natural environment, Ziptrek Ecotours are also Queenstown’s first Carbon neutral tourism business. They also hosted our very own 72 Year old Zipline Granny to help her on her mission to tick off all of the Zipline tours in NZ, see Zipline Granny in action in the image gallery!
