What to Expect
If you're a thrill-seeker looking to add some adventure to your life, you will absolutely love this heart-racing aerial tour of Northern New Zealand. Zipline over the rainforest of Rotorua on this guided 3.5-hour tour. You will have the chance to spot all sorts of natural wildlife and soak up the impressive scenery of the region.
Your tour will begin with a guided forest walk through the dense, lush forest of Rotorua. From there, you will get to a swing bridge that will take you up to your first ground platform. Then, it's time for another brief forest trek before gearing up for your first zipline run of the day. Get fitted out in all the necessary safety equipment before speeding over the rainforest canopy. You will fly along three solo zipline courses, stopping at two tree platforms in between.
After that, it's time to try tandem ziplining. You and a friend will get the unique opportunity to fly side-by-side down an adrenaline-pumping 400-metre course before getting to a swing bridge that will lead you back to ground. Once there, take another short forest walk to a tree platform, where you will embark on your second-to-last zipline of the day. Descend 6 metres to a tree platform, then descend another 3 metres via swing bridge.
Finally, take one final zipline to your final tree platform, then make a controlled descent 18 metres back down to ground. Your tour will end with a guided forest walk back to your original starting point.
