It is truly special to be high up amongst the treetops, taking in Queenstown and the surrounding lake and mountains from a very unique angle whilst learning a little and having lots of fun along the way.  Come and join us for a fun adventure that is suitable for everyone, no matter your age or abilities.

“Fantastic Zipline Tour!”

Had a great time on the 6 line tour, even though it was raining! The tour guides were so friendly and made the experience so much fun! Would highly recommend this activity for anyone who doesn't want to try extreme things like a swing or bungy jump like me! This is a great alternative!


Sydney, Australia


If you're visiting Queenstown definitely do not miss the zip line! Not only is it super fun but it offers great views of Queenstown from above. If you're nervous or inexperienced with zip lining they also make it super easy and help you build up confidence. 10/10 I would recommend ziptrek!


Melbourne, Australia

“cool cool cool....”

Myself and my 6 year old son did the zip trek 4 line tour. We both had a very pleasant morning. Staff were lovely and knowledgeable , the whole experience was very well constructed with a pleasant professional team. I would definitely do this tour again with friends visiting town.


Queenstown, New Zealand

“A flying fox on steroids”

This is the second time I have been on the Queenstown Ziptrek. It is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon having a lot of fun. Ziptrek is for all ages, all you need is a scene of adventure and a good scene of humour. The staff are welcoming, encouraging and enthusiastic, they make sure that you understand exactly what you’re getting into. Safety is the number one priority.


Christchurch, New Zealand

“Fun Afternoon with Ziptrek”

Had such a great afternoon with Ziptrek! Guides were friendly and encouraging, and the system in place made it simple to use and very safe. With the Moa tour, you also get to go on the longest zipline in the world, which is pretty cool!

“A thrill through the trees”

A fantastic experience zip lining through the trees. Being a first time experience, the guides were great and knew their stuff. A well run and safe environment. View is unreal and lots of fun. Would do it again.


Gold Coast, Australia

“Awesome views with a spot of adrenalin!”

Awesome views of a beautiful city with a bit of adrenalin thrown in! Thanks to Arjun and Henri for their humour, and fun-filled professionalism. Also, much respect for your support for Kiva - keep up the great work!


Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

“What fear of heights? ”

I'm petrified of heights and I'm far from an adrenalin junkie but this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I didn't feel scared at all! The staff had a natural way of making you feel so safe I didn't even hesitate to let go or go upside down. It's a must do for the whole family!


Perth, Australia

“Super fun for big and small people”

It was super fun as we zoomed our way through the pine forests with a stunning view of The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu. Our guides Stephen and Arjun were full of interesting info about the area, history and Ziptrek's eco philosophy. My 9 and 11 year olds loved it and even went upside-down!

“Bucket List: ZIPLINE check!!”

Sheer joy! I felt like Peter Pan, zipping along and enjoying the sights. The staff were so helpful, very kind and instilled confidence in me to step out into space for the ride of a lifetime. Do it! Enjoy it! Tell about it!


Ohio, America

“Great views and great fun!”

This is a fantastic activity for all ages. The guides are fantastic, funny and keeps you entertained the whole time with humorous stories and some eco-friendly advice as well. Ziplining is fun and there are many great positions that you can do it in. Safety is a top priority. Highly recommended as a family activity.


Hong Kong, China

“Woohoo!! So much fun!”

Thank you to Steve and Ginny for a fun day on the Kea zip line. Very professional, very safe, very fun. I was also impressed with the conservation messages, delivered in a fun and entertaining way.
