Full description

Join in a small-group zipline tour that will have you soaring through Rotorua's forest canopy. Switch between the six zipline cables suspended 22-meters above the ground and see the forest from a different perspective.  When you arrive at the base, you'll receive a warm welcome from the front office team.

Check-in and meet your down-to-earth highly experienced kiwi guides who will kit you out with all necessary equipment for the day's weather. A quick 10-minute van ride and you'll arrive at the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve.  Your guides will share fascinating New Zealand eco-tour knowledge with your group, which is limited to just 10 people.

At the first platform after a safety briefing, you’ll be off, exploring the native forest on 1.2 km network of Rotorua ziplines, swing bridges and treetop platforms.

In total there are 6 ziplines totaling more than 650 meters, the highlight for most being the jaw-dropping 220-meter 'tui song' zipline that departs from 22 meters up a 1000-year-old tree.  Your trusty guides will be clipping you on and off all of the safety systems during your tour, your guide will even slow you down as you arrive at each platform.

You will not be required to operate any of the equipment on the tour. This allows you to enjoy the ziplines and take in the magical native forest.

Wow, this was a great experience, especially because of the amazing guides Phoebe and Alex! Being in this super special forest has made me feel grateful for the nature even more. A lot of action, too, but the guides are actually protectors of the native forest and its fauna, which makes the price even mire worth it.

An amazing experience with friendly and funny guides. I was a bit hesitant on some of the zip lines but the guides were patient and encouraging and I managed to do this activity which took me out of my comfort zone. The information about the bush and wildlife was interesting too and well worth the trip.

Exhilarating activity in a beautiful environment - Our guides (Tray and Colby - I am sure I spelt their names wrong) were amazing - very patient - very safety conscious without making everyone scared. Love what they are doing to protect the old growth forest. Definitely a 10 for us.
