Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Opened in August 2012. Explore the ancient forest of the Mamaku Plateau 10 minutes from Rotorua on New Zealand's only native forest zipline canopy tours. In small groups of up to ten people you will be accompanied by two highly trained guides who will teach you about the rare New Zealand flora and fauna and the conservation efforts to protect them. Every plant and tree species you see, you will not see in any other country on earth!! There are two unique eco-tour experiences to choose from - the award winning 3 hour Original Canopy Tour built and opened in 2012 includes tree platforms up to 22 metres above the forest floor, 6 ziplines and 2 tree to tree swing bridges. The 3.5 hour Ultimate Canopy Tour is even longer, faster and more spectacular featuring a suspended cliff walkway, 1.2km of ziplines (the longest is 400m!), swing bridges, a controlled descent and an incredible spiral staircase.

Go.Just.Go. If you're on the fence jump off of it and onto the zip line. It was a blast meeting new people and our guides were first rate. It was thrilling, informative, warm, and you never felt out of your depth nor was it too tame. Perfect for friends, couples, families or just stiking out on your own.

First time we ziplined and we were at least 50 ft up in the canopy of a rainforest. Learned so much about the conservancy and their work to preserve native species

The canopy tour is a great idea to spend an afternoon in Rotorua. Our guides, Danny and Tomothée drove us to a beautiful NZ native forest where the zip linings were installed. We were also shown some beautiful kiwi native birds and got to feed them. The two guides led us through the six different zip linings with great humour! It’s also a bonus that the tickets sold support the preservation of the beautiful bushes and the native birds of NZ.

We had the greatest time on the canopy tours! We would tell anyone to try it. They are professional, meticulous, extremely helpful and provide one of the most fun experiences we have had in a long time and we are over 60! The price is worth 3 hours of entertainment!
