TAP FOR MORE INFO:

Whether you’re clipped to a zipline, bouncing across a swing bridge or strolling along a 50-metre-high walkway, you’ll get a whole new perspective on native bush in Rotorua. 

Canopy Tours takes you on a journey deep into – and high above – 500 hectares of pristine New Zealand forest. 

Soar above the canopy on 1200m of zipline; tackle the 75-metre swing bridge and meander along the suspended cliff walkway between treetop platforms as you gaze at a lush forest of ferns and ancient podocarps. 

In a unique mix of adrenaline and conservation, you can plunge and fly amongst the trees while appreciating the flourishing native fauna.

Tūī, kereru, bellbirds, North Island robins and tomtits are all in abundance here, thanks to the extensive predator control and forest restoration.
