Book - Ziptrek 4-Line Tour

Ziptrek Ecotours is NZ’s #1 original zipline tour and is a spectacular guided eco-adventure through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, situated on Skyline Gondola hill.   

Ride the Gondola and check in at the Ziptrek Guest Services treehouse before stepping off architecturally designed aerial tree platforms to “zzziiiip” down the cable from tree to tree. 

From the moment you check in, to the moment you complete the tour, you are in the trees, high above the ground. Between the ziplines, Ziptrek guides deliver educational information with an ecological focus as well as facts on the local area.

The perfect starter to your adventure experience in Queenstown. The Moa comprises four ziplines, starting and finishing at the top of the Skyline Gondola.  Moa is designed to start low and slow and gradually build your confidence as it gets progressively longer, higher and faster. All ages love the interaction this aerial tour has to offer but particularly good for families, young or young at heart or those dining up at Skyline.

The perfect Queenstown adventure for everyone to enjoy!
