Ziptreking - 4 Ziplines
- 2 hours
The perfect starter to your adventure experience in Queenstown.
Journey through the forest on four incredible ziplines with stunning views across Lake Wakatipu to the Remarkables mountain range.
Two guides will take you on a journey as the ziplines start low and slow and gradually build your confidence as they get progressively longer, higher and faster.
Guests will be met by their tour guides and fitted with all safety gear (harness & helmet) before ziplining from treehouse to treehouse, 1/3 of the way down Bob's Peak mountain.
The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Two tour guides will accompany the minimum 2, maximum 10 guests per tour. One guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.
You will finish your tour back where you started, at the Ziptrek Treehouse, as there is a short 10min uphill walk after the last zipline.
The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment and local area including Maori mythology.
