Embark on a journey of discovery on Waiheke Island, just 35 minutes from downtown Auckland, with the 3-hour EcoZip Adventure. After being picked up at the ferry terminal, enjoy a fully commentated ‘Waiheke Highlights’ tour showcasing what the Lonely Planet named ‘the playground of the gods’.
Once you arrive at EcoZip HQ, which is located high on a hill with spectacular sea views to Auckland City, you’ll take to the skies on our unique giant ziplines. With dual cables each over 200m long, fly side-by-side with a friend in an unforgettable shared experience. Across 3 separate lines, you’ll zip high above a working vineyard and lush, ancient forest canopies, soaking up incredible views back to the city and beyond.
Descending from the final landing deck, you’ll exchange your birds-eye forest view for the cool, sun-dappled forest floor – home to geckos and skinks, weta, eels and even glow-worms. The ancient trees are a treasure-trove of stories and legend. Your guides will share Maori myths, and explain how your visit helps EcoZip Adventures preserve and restore, not only this beautiful and important Site of Environmental Significance, but other extensive wetland restoration projects across Waiheke Island .
Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
Ecozip was born out of the desire of two friends to share the wonders of our natural environment with visitors & kiwis, in a safe, fun & environmentally friendly way. Gavin & Chris, founders of Ecozip, decided that Ziplines were the perfect way to showcase the native forests of Auckland in such a way. The result is a course of three dual-ziplines, each with a unique stunning outlook & long-range views, followed by an enchanting forest walk back to base, where you learn about your surroundings & your contribution to their protection!
