    What to Expect
    Find out why Queenstown is New Zealand’s adrenaline capital with this zipline adventure! Launching from the Ziptrek Treehouse at the Skyline Gondola summit, you’ll zipline down the mountain and take in panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the snow-capped Remarkables mountain range. With three tours to choose from it's fun for everyone - whether you are looking for an introduction into Queenstown adventure, excited by the thrill of the world's steepest tree-to-tree zipline, or taking the plunge on our newest tour; the Kereru, which features a 21 metre drop!

    The guides ensure you launch safely from each aerial tree-house platform as you zipline down the mountain, soaring through a beech forest with prime views of Lake Wakatipu and the snow-capped Southern Alps. Choose between the 1-hour Kereru tour, 2 ziplines and an incredible 21 meters drop; the 2-hour Moa tour, course the whole family can enjoy (for kids aged 6 and up), or select the high-velocity 3-hour Kea tour to amp up the adrenaline factor on the world’s steepest tree-to-tree zipline.

    You’ll even learn a little Queenstown history and ecology before zooming down the next line. 

    Kereru Course (1-Hour): Find your wings and fly through the treetops on two breathtaking ziplines before finishing with a swooping 21 metre drop, leaving you a fledgling no more.

    Moa Zipline Course (2 Hours): On this family-friendly course’s four ziplines, you’ll pick up speed as you zipline faster and higher. Conclude your zipline tour with a short 10-minute return walk.

    Kea Zipline Course (3 Hours): This expert course covers six ziplines and descends from a height of 30 stories at up to 43 mph (69 kph).
