Owner description: Ziptrek Ecotours is NZ's #1 Original Zipline tour and is a spectacular eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, situated on Skyline Gondola hill. Ziptrek runs all year round and is stunning whatever the weather. With two tours to choose from it is suitable for everyone, whether looking for an introduction into Queenstown adventure (Moa 4-Line Tour) or wanting the latest gripping eco-exhilaration (Kea 6-Line Tour) which includes the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world.

Our family did the 6 line tour after a recommendation from a fellow guest at The Dairy. My wife was a bit anxious about the heights and concept but the professionalism of the guides and obvious protocols being followed along with a relatively gentle first run put paid to that - she happily leapt onto the final 100m drop line. Our guides (Kyle and Hailey) did a great job explaining the Eco philosophy while allowing everyone to enjoy themselves safely. Really a fun time.

I'm the most timid person but I found the zip trek to be an exhilarating and exciting way to see the forest and learn about the land. The staff was knowledgable and friendly and their methods extremely safe.

Did the 6 line trek
Guides (Josh and Leo) were fab, very knowledgeable and fun.

The first 3 zips are very short, the last 3 are longer and the final one is the world's steepest zip wire.

The views are good and it is fun but you only spend <10mins on the zip wires on the whole 3hr session, so there is a lot of waiting around and the wires aren't very long.

We rode the gondola to the top of the mountain before checking in at the tree house to begin zipping. When we arrived, the staff was all very professional and had a great sense of humor. It's clear that safety is their top priority as the harnesses were checked and double checked over and over again.

We went for the 6-line tour. The first three lines were relatively tame, but the last three were all fantastic. I found the talks about sustainability to be relatively brief and informative.

There is a 15-20 minute downhill hike between lines 5 & 6, which could be difficult for those with bad knees. It would be great if these we're eventually connected by additional zip lines.

Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend the Ziptrek tour for anyone visiting Queenstown.

Very professional and highly recommend doing the zip line.
We did the 6 Kea Tour and this was the best choice.
Neither myself nor my partner like high adrenaline activities and this was a total blast.
I'd be lying if I said it was totally easy, it is not. You need to overcome some fear, but the journey is thoroughly enjoyable, and once your zipping through the air its a great feeling.
The experience also has an environmental side to it, so you learn while you are having fun.
Situated at the top of the skyline gondola, if you are to do just one activity this one should top your list.
