WHAT TO EXPECT
Ziptrek Ecotours is New Zealand's #1 Original Zipline tour company. The multi-award winning company offers a spectacular, fun and educational Zipline eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, on Skyline Gondola hill. Take in stunning views of the surrounding lakes and mountains while learning about the local environment and having heaps of fun along the way. Buckle up and experience an adrenaline rush like no other!
Upon check-in, you'll meet your guides at the 'Ziptrek Guest Services Tree', located 100 metres to the left of the Gondola upper terminal. You will then be fitted with a climbing harness and helmet, and ready to rock 'n' roll!
The Ziplines are entirely gravity fed, meaning guests don't have to worry about controlling their own speed. During the ride, two tour guides will accompany each and every guest, one guide to connect on the launch platform, and the other guide to disconnect on the landing platform.
The knowledgeable guides will take care of everything technical, meaning you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. They will inform you about the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale and offer sustainable education in a receptive and engaging manner. You'll learn how Ziptrek strives to operate in an environmentally friendly way, and you'll be provided with tips on how you can do your bit too.
