Canopy Tour

from $149.00

Experience the thrill of flying high above untraversed native forest valleys in this three hour zipline adventure. Take in the whole picture of ecology from great heights with classic Kiwi guides who bring knowledge, humour, fun and a whole lot of ‘Kiwiana’ to the adventure, with safety of the utmost importance. The guides help visitors handfeed wild native birds, while sharing knowledge of the bird song, flora and fauna. With a portion of every ticket invested into conservation, everyone is part of the forest restoration story. With three years of conservation and tonnes of pest removed from the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve, 180ha of this forest is now predator free and rowdy birdsong is returning, so keep an eye out for Robins, Kereru, Tomtit, Tui, Bellbirds, Whiteheads, Kaka and Fantails. The dream is to restore the eco-system to the one Captain James Cook discovered on arrival to New Zealand – full of loud bird chorus. On the way traverse a 1.2km network of ziplines, swingbridges, treetop platforms and walking trails, deep in untouched native New Zealand forest. The jaw dropping 220 metre “Tui Song” zipline is the longest, where you step out of a 1000 year old Rimu tree and fly over a long forgotten valley, deep into the forest beyond. Labelled on Trip Advisor as an ‘Adventure activity with a brain,’ this is the number one ranked experience in the North Island of New Zealand.
