The latest thrill-seeking activity to hit Queenstown, Ziptrek Ecotours is a spectacular and exhilarating flying fox eco-adventure through the forest canopy, situated on Skyline Gondola hill.
Harness up and feel the wind in your face as you “Zziippp” down break-taking flying foxes which traverse down the mountain tree to tree. Their experienced guides launch and receive you at each tree deck, so you are able to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Gaze at the spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable mountain range as the guides deliver light-hearted but interesting details on local history, myths, legends and ecological principals at each suspended tree-house.
Ziptrek Ecotours runs all year round and is stunning whatever the weather. With two tours to choose from it is suitable for everyone, whether looking for an introduction into Queenstown adventure or wanting the latest gripping eco-exhilaration, featuring the steepest tree to tree flying fox in the world.
