The perfect experience to combine fun and education

Exciting education outside of the classroom


We can’t think of anything better than educating the world, one kiwi at a time, about the amazing and unique environment we call home.

Since 2012 thousands of school-aged children have visited Rotorua Canopy Tours as part of school programmes. Why? Because this really is an education outside the classroom with so many ways in which we meet the objectives of a child’s education.

There are several factors that affect our natural environment here in New Zealand. We have a large part to play in making sure we don’t loose our natural wonderland and its flora and fauna that has developed like no where else in the world.

Here at Rotorua Canopy Tours we are doing our bit to restore an ancient endemic forest. We want to make sure it is around for years to come and give the breath taking experience of being able to fly through it, over it and walk among its giants!

For educational groups we can adapt to make the perfect outing for your group. So, if you’re looking for an educational experience to fill all your needs and to make sure the big kids (adults) have as much fun as the young ones, send us an inquiry below and we can personalise an experience to your needs.
