Ziptrek Ecotours



You can now become a record breaker by doing the "worlds steepest tree to tree zipline" as a standalone product.

Travel at up to speeds of 70kph as you drop 30 storeys in 10 seconds.



Ziptrek Ecotours is NZ's #1 Original Zipline tour company. Our multi award winning company offers a spectacular and fun zipline eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, on Skyline Gondola hill, situated a few minutes walk from the CBD.

We've also introduced some incredible combo deals so we've made choosing an adventure even easier by combining the best that Queenstown outdoor adventure has to offer whilst also saving you money.

Operating in some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery that Queenstown has to offer, there is now an activity for everyone, no matter their age or ability.

Guests check-in and meet their guides at the "Ziptrek Guest Services Treehouse", 100 metres to the left of the Skyline Gondola upper terminal. All guests will be fitted with a zipping harness and helmet.

Guests can reach our tours by either taking the gondola (cost not included in our tour price) or walk up the adventurous Tiki Trail (allow a minimum 1 hour, longer if travelling with younger or older people).

The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Two tour guides will accompany guests on their tour, one guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.

The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale. Meanwhile, the ziplines provide an adrenaline rush like no other!
