New Zealand’s ONLY Native Forest Zipline Canopy Tour

Rotorua Canopy Tours is a guided 3 hour eco adventure through the evergreen native forests of the Mamaku Plateau only minutes from Rotorua. It is the # 1 ranked activity in the North Island on TripAdvisor – click here to read some reviews

For 3 hours, escorted by 2 highly trained guides with no more than 10 people, you will experience one of the North Island’s last remaining remnants of untouched forest in the most exciting and unique of ways.

Take on the sights, smells and sounds of the forest on a tour where you will see tree and bird species not seen on any other country on earth – centuries old giant trees, monster tree ferns and perching plants dominate the landscape that has never been modified by human beings. If you are lucky you may even hand feed wild native birds.

Meeting at our headquaters in Rotorua we will escort you back in time as we take you to our ancient forest only 12 minutes away.

The journey traverses a 1.2 km network of ziplines (flying foxes) walking trails, suspended bridges and treetop platforms up to 22 metres above the ground. Along the way the guides will bring the forest to life as you learn about its history, inhabitants and the conservation dream driving it all.

The highlight for many is the jaw dropping 220 metre “Tui Song” zipline where you step out of the canopy of a 500 year old Rimu tree and fly over a long forgotten valley deep into the forest beyond – one of six  zipline flights.

Be inspired by the beauty of the forest and the excitement of the ziplines while losing yourself to the power of nature on a journey you will remember forever.

An incredible journey unfolds as you traverse the tour route – surprises lurk around every corner, the platforms get higher and the flights get longer. Your curiosity will get the better of you as you become more immersed in the environment, wanting to know more, ask more questions and the bond amongst your fellow adventurers grows stronger.
