Rotorua ziplining at it’s best!

Voted TripAdvisor’s #11 experience on the planet

 

For our little kiwi business to be recognised as one of the best experiences on the planet makes us more than proud to do what we do!

The Ultimate Canopy Tour Rotorua is evolutionary in many ways. An engineering feat which involved drones, helicopters and new technology. We were able to reach new areas of the forest and provide new exciting features.

Thank you to everyone who has come to experience the Ultimate zipline and left Heart Felted reviews for others to get excited about it too. We love your support and we’ll keep delivering world class experiences!
