What you can expect

The Kea 6-line zipline adventure tour offers an experience that is faster, longer and finishes with an amazing flying fox ride that descends 30 storeys at speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour over some gorgeous natural forestry in New Zealand's Queenstown region! A unique way to get down the mountain, this stunningly beautiful guided journey through the native beech forest is comprised of six breathtaking, tree to tree ziplines that offer views of outstanding alpine vistas before returning you to the bottom of gondola hill on a complete physical and visual high.

Those with an appetite for adrenaline will be able to take zip-lining to a new, hair-raising level as they fly down the hill for roughly a kilometre - the equivalent length of ten rugby fields! This three-hour, high-velocity adventure also includes a wonderful 20 minute guided trek, all of which combines for an amazing value way to experience the forest like never before.
