Treetop canopy walk - the best zipline tour in the world

Friday, 19 July 2019

Treetop canopy walk and zipline tour - Want to find out how Rotorua Canopy Tours built the best treetop canopy walk and zipline tour in the world? Find out here everything about the build and what it took to be one of the best ziplining locations around the world.


 

Treetop canopy walk - from the beginning to the Ultimate Canopy Tour

Back in 2012 two university friends got together and decided to start a treetop canopy walk and zipline company. After months of research and planning they opened the first Rotorua Canopy Tours course - The Original Canopy Tour.  The 3 hour Original Canopy Tour was a huge success with people visiting from all over the world - the company expanded into a new headquarters to house the influx of visitors and the increased number of staff. The Original Canopy Tour went on to winning national tourism awards, so in 2017 we decided it was time to build the best zipline course in the world - The Ultimate Canopy Tour. The Ultimate Canopy Tour has all the same fun things - ziplines, swing bridges and the most popular part of the tour - the conservation trail. But it has some very special features that make it what we think is the best zipline course in the world. It features a cliff face walk, a controlled descent, spiral staircase and a 400-meter zipline which is our longest ever zipline. The Ultimate Canopy Tour is just bigger, longer and even more spectacular!
