What to Expect
Descend 30 storeys at speeds of up to 70kph on the world's steepest tree-to-tree zipline.
Longer and faster than other ziplining tours, this stunning guided journey through native beech forest compromises six amazing ziplines, finishing you right back in town on a total high.
You'll journey through ancient native beech forest on six breathtaking tree-to-tree ziplines, all of which offer outstanding alpine vistas. You'll return to the bottom of gondola hill on a complete high!
The Kea tour is suitable for everyone - although it is perfect for those seeking a higher adrenaline factor. Families with older children, honeymooners, and outdoor/nature enthusiasts rejoice on this spectacular, fun and educational zipline eco-adventure.
Travel through the forest canopy high above Queenstown, on Skyline Gondola hill. Here, you can take in stunning views of the surrounding lakes and mountains while learning about the local environment and having heaps of fun along the way.
Buckle up and experience an adrenaline rush like no other because the ziplines are entirely gravity fed, meaning guests don't have to worry about controlling their own speed. During the ride, two tour guides will accompany each and every guest, one guide to connect on the launch platform, and the other guide to disconnect on the landing platform.
The knowledgeable guides will take care of everything technical, meaning you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. They will inform you about the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale and offer sustainable education in a receptive and engaging manner. You'll learn how the supplier strives to operate in an environmentally friendly way, and you'll be provided with tips on how you can do your bit too.
Upon check-in, you'll meet your guides at the 'Ziptrek Guest Services Treehouse', located 100 metres to the left of the Gondola upper terminal. You will then be fitted with a climbing harness and helmet, and ready to rock 'n' roll!
Departure times are 10:20am and 1.20pm. Due to the ongoing effects of Covid-19, these departure times are subject to change. Tour times will be confirmed upon booking.
