The birthplace and global home of Ziptrek Ecotours, this is where it all began back in 2002. Ziptrek is the North American pioneer of guided zipline tours, and the Whistler location now hosts 5 distinct zipline tours by way of 11 individual ziplines, as well as the TreeTrek Canopy Walk. This is also home of The Sasquatch® - The longest zipline in all of Canada and the USA!

New Zealand

Ziptrek's 2nd permanent location was launched in 2009, and soon brought prominence to ziplining in the southern hemisphere. Boasting the steepest tree-to-tree zipline in the world, Ziptrek New Zealand also offers up sensational views of the breathtaking Lake Wakatipu and Remarkables mountain range as the experience begins atop Bob's Peak in beautiful Queenstown.

Mont Tremblant

Home to the longest ziplines in the province of Quebec, Ziptrek Tremblant offers up a truly amazing experience that zips you from the mountain summit back down to the village. Located in the famed eastern Canadian resort, this operation was launched in 2014 with a state of the art build which features all 5 ziplines being twinned. Spectacular views from one of the highest points in the Laurentians!

Bespoke Groups

If you are looking at delivering a truly unique experience for your group, please contact us directly to discuss a range of alternative options from our normal group offerings. We are able to offer exclusive use of our zipline course for a ‘Continuous Zip’ option. This would see you book the entire course for your exclusive use and would see your clients zipline through the entire course, one at a time, by our guide (your clients would not touch the zipline).  Ziptrek would station our guides at every treehouse platform to launch and receive your clients and they would just go straight from one zipline to the other (no story-telling between ziplines). This option allows us to get participants through quickly if you are working to a tight schedule and also ties nicely in with any function or event you may already be partaking in at the Skyline gondola facility - we are able to host guests personally and bring them down to Ziptrek in small groups, returning them to their function after they have zipped.

My Guide Queenstown

Ziptrek Ecotours

Ziptrek Ecotours is New Zealand's number one ziplining guided tour featuring the steepest tree to tree zipline in the world.

This is a fully guided tour. You will be well looked after by two experienced guides that manage all aspects of safety and help with your launch and arrival at each tree deck. Everything is taken care of, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride With a rare emphasis on sustainability as well as adventure, Ziptrek offers fascination and exhilaration in equal measure. You will be ziplining through ancient native Beech forest with a backdrop of mountain peaks and the awe-inspiring Lake Wakatipu.

The resources Ziptrek relies on are sustainable and no engine noise is produced on the tour, meaning that all you will hear as you zip through the trees is your own 'whoops' of enjoyment. Ziptrek has been awarded Enviro-Gold Status from New Zealand's tourism quality watchdog, Qualmark.

The Moa 4-Line Tour

Your experienced guides will give you interpretative and interactive tours whilst also ensuring that you get a taste of adventure as they assist your launch from each treehouse platform. 

This tour is designed to start slow and gradually increase in adrenaline to help build your confidence. It is well-suited to those who have never ziplined before as well as families and groups.  The Moa Tour starts and ends at the Treehouse at the top of the gondola.

The Kea 6 Line-Tour 

Taking the adrenaline level up a notch, the Kea features the world's steepest tree to tree zipline and is faster and longer than the Moa. You will fly down the hill for about one kilometre - the equivalent length of ten rugby pitches at speeds of up to 70kph!

This option is perfect for mixing it up with more exciting ways of zipping. You might want to dangle upside down for a different perspective. The Kea also includes a 20 minute guided walk through the native beech forest on the local Tiki Trail and ends at the base of the gondola.  The Kea tour has a minimum weight of 30kg/66lbs. Kererū  2 Line + Drop Find your wings and fly through the treetops on two breathtaking ziplines before finishing with a swooping 21 metre drop, leaving you a fledgling no more!  Discover the story of Zealandia and Ziptrek's preservation of our natural landscape whilst we do our bit to protect our native wildlife!  The Kererū Tour starts and ends at the Treehouse at the top of the gondola.

How long is the Tour?

Whether you are short on time or have all afternoon to hang out, there’s a tour to suit everyone!

Our Kea 6-Line tour is 2.5 to 3 hours in length. Our Moa 4-Line tour takes between 1.5 and 2 hours.

If you’re short on time, our Kererū 2-Line + Drop and Kererū Interactive tours take only 45 mins to 1 hour.

Check-in at the Ziptrek Treehouse at least 15 minutes before departure. Allow 40-60mins to travel by gondola from the base to the Ziptrek Treehouse.

What to bring

Closed-toe footwear is compulsory on all tours. It’s always a few degrees cooler up on Bob’s Peak and weather conditions can change quickly. Always bring an extra layer, no matter the season.

In winter, we recommend you rug up as if you’re going skiing! Gloves, hats, neck warmers and warm coats are essential.

If you have a camera or small recording device, you’re welcome to bring it with you.

We do have the capacity to safely store small items: wallets, small bags, sunglasses etc for you while on tour – but recommend you leave anything bulky at your accommodation or at our booking office at 45 Camp St, Queenstown.

Ziptrek ecotours: carbon zero since 2019.

Ziptrek Ecotours is Queenstown’s first carbon-neutral tourism business. They are renowned for delivering awareness, education and working with the natural environment.

Trent Yeo never planned to build a sustainable tourism business in Queenstown. He didn’t even plan to live here. But like so many, this (then) young visitor with a background in sustainable architecture and outdoor education, came to visit a friend on holiday, and never left. He simply abandoned his carefully thought-out business plan to take Ziptrek to the Blue Mountains of Australia.

“It was because of the drive, focus and coordination of Queenstown tourism and New Zealand’s deep storytelling and history of doing great conservation work. And because I wanted to live in a place like this anyway,” says Trent.

Man ziplining in spring with Ziptrek Eco Tours

That was fourteen years ago. Today,  Ziptrek Ecotours , is a multi-award-winning company and Queenstown’s first carbon-neutral tourism activity – certified by Ekos , a New Zealand carbon reduction programme.

He admits that for a small company like Ziptrek, which is low carbon by design - it was relatively straightforward.

“Understanding what good design was within the natural system was my key priority from the start. The model itself is basically designed to be in locations where you don’t need much energy, and then to be mega-efficient. We didn’t need to build in huge structures, we designed and built treehouses, out of timber, which sequesters carbon while it’s in use. Our ziplines are gravity-powered and it wasn’t by accident that we’re in a position that already has electric transport (the gondola) up Bob’s Peak to the start of the zipline,” says Trent.

Even so, since Ziptrek started measuring its carbon footprint over four years ago, the company has cut its carbon emissions by 61% in FY20/21, compared to the year before. For an already energy-lean operation, it took simple things like only partnering and getting supplies from like-minded companies, right down to the company lawyer, Anderson Lloyd, which is a net carbon zero law firm. “Over a year the carbon footprint of our whole business is the equivalent to four people moving to the district. So it’s miniscule.” Although tiny, there is still some carbon offsetting required to get to zero – Ziptrek only purchases the premium Ekos New Zealand carbon credits that support the Kānuka Hill project.   

Ziptrek Ecotours group

Trent’s next step is to upgrade his fleet of three vehicles to electric. “Instantly we’d drop our carbon by maybe 30%.”

That will only happen once the recovery’s over and the funds are there - the last three years have not been easy for a business that relies on visitors. But what’s never changed since the business started, is the amount of effort put in to increase awareness and passion for the natural environment. It all starts with the Ziptrek team – who have to be fully committed to sustainability. “I challenge most people on their first day as I onboard: this means a lot to us, and we all have to care. You can’t go to work for a sustainability company and care, then earn money and not care on the weekends – it just doesn’t work like that.”

Then there’s the guests, who will leave their experience with a heightened understanding of the environment they have ziplined through. An exhilarating, fun ride through the forest with stunning views, becomes more memorable and meaningful given the context that goes with it. Different ziplines tell different stories. The Moa 4-line and Kea 6-line tours tell the sustainability story; the Kea tour even includes a walk through beautiful native beech forest and has the world’s steepest tree to tree zipline ride; the Kereru tour tells the conservation story, it incorporates two ziplines and finishes with an adrenaline filled 21metre drop-off from a treehouse to the forest floor.

“We build these emotionally impactful things and it’s just like classic interpretation theory right? What attitude have people felt whilst coming here that they would reflect on back home when somebody asks them. I hope that’s one of deep care and respect for our places and our people.”  

That respect for its places has seen Ziptrek plant over 6000 natives in its operational area, watered by the rainwater collected in its drums. To give the native species a chance to flourish, stoat and possum traps have been installed and are monitored, as part of ongoing work with the Whakatipu Wildlife Trust . All Ziptrek’s operational requirements like cameras and electronic safety gates are run on solar energy - with occasional back-up when needed.

In the last couple of years, respect for people has seen Ziptrek support the Headlight Trust (helping people talk about mental health) and Sustainable Queenstown and KiwiHarvest to enable them to hold a food rescue dinner – their major fundraiser for the year.

All this, as well as getting the business to carbon zero for the last three years - might seem like Ziptrek Ecotours has it made, but it’s never that simple.

Ziptrek

When Trent arrived in 2006, the hardy Douglas fir trees that he built sustainable architectural treehouses amongst, were considered icons of the alpine resort. Today, as non-native species, cultural acceptance has changed and they are considered at odds with the environment. So Ziptrek’s support trees may eventually be at risk, but Trent is philosophical about the complexity of sustainability.

“I would personally test if the biological values are more or less than the impact of towers, rather than trees. But I am respectful. I just don't know - do biological values trump carbon values?”

It is the making of even more compelling sustainability stories from a business that prides itself in exploring them, giving its guests even more to think about, once the excitement and fun of the Zipline has become just a memory.
