Ziptrek: Kea 6-Line
Ziptrek Ecotours is a spectacular and exhilarating zipline eco-adventure through the forest canopy, situated 450m above Queenstown on Bob's Peak (next to the Skyline Gondola).
Harness up and feel the wind in your face as you glide down breath-taking ziplines which traverse down the mountain tree to tree. Our 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 our guides deliver light-hearted but interesting details on local history, myths, legends and ecological principals at each suspended tree-house.

The only exception to this is for our Moa tour, whereby we may be able to offer tandem ziplining for guests under the weight requirement.
