Tour Details

Guests will be met by their tour guides and fitted with their harnesses and helmets before ziplining from treehouse to treehouse going all of the way down Bob's Peak mountain.   

The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Two tour guides will accompany the minimum 2, maximum 10 guests per tour. One guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.

You will finish your tour at the base of the gondola in front of the Kiwi Birdlife Park. 

The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale as well as information on Queenstown and Maori mythology.
