Overview
Experience the vibrant New Zealand bush on this unique, thrilling zipline adventure. Get right up into the otherwise-inaccessible canopy of the Bay of Plenty forest, where native birds like tui, robins and plump kereru make their homes, and zip through the native trees to the forest floor. This small-group adventure is a great way to experience New Zealand’s native forests without working up a sweat or waiting in line forever.
What to Expect

Please arrive at our HQ on Fairy Springs Road 15 minutes prior to the tour departure, or just let us know at the time of your booking where you would like to be picked up from – all of our tours include a complementary pick-up and drop-off from any central Rotorua location if required.

You’ll check-in, meet your authentic kiwi guides, and we’ll get you into your ziplining harness. Then we drive out to the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve, just 10 minutes from our HQ.

Step into a lost world and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native eco-systems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand.

Immerse yourself in this breathtaking country the way it once was – and hear the inimitable birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru and Tomtits in their natural habitat.

Just by being on the tour, you are already contributing to the conservation effort, as part of your ticket price goes towards the programme to restore the beautiful forest and remove all introduced pests. 

Please allow 3.5 hours for your tour.

Fantastic afternoon flying through the trees

We had a terrific time. The team was excellent - very mindful of our safety while providing great entertainment, and calming those who had "fear of height" jitters. It was also wonderful to learn about the ongoing successful conservation efforts being undertaken by Rotorua Canopy...More

Should be OK for original tour (ultimate requires 10 or older). Part of problem is weight. Think of zipline as a U shape. Kids don't weigh much, so they may stall midway on zipline (don't get enough speed to go up to next... More
