Rotorua Canopy Tour

Rotorua Canopy Tour

Soar through the trees and experience New Zealand’s ancient forest like never before – in two unforgettable zipline adventures. Step into a lost world and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native eco-systems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand. Immerse yourself in this breathtaking country the way it once was – and hear the inimitable birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru and Tomtits in their natural habitat.

There are two unique eco-tour experiences to choose from, featuring a network of ziplines, suspended swingbridges, treetop platforms and forest trails, as you journey deep into 500 hectares of ancient forest. Get below the surface, above the trees, learn about the past and become part of the future. Voted TripAdvisor’s #1 Nature Activity in the world – it’s an adventure not to be missed

This is an all-weather experience and the canopy in wet weather is magical beyond belief!

Liv and Cam were great!
Overall Tour Rating

This zipline tour was very interesting because of the conservation efforts communicated during the tour. The zips were great and so were our guides.
Overall Tour Rating

I had a brilliant time. The team were friendly, knowledgeable and supportive and the views from the zip wires were beautiful. I would love to do it again and highly recommend to others who have a spare few hours and want to have some fun.
