Since James and Andrew opened our doors in 2012, we have been working hard to preserve one of New Zealands most unique and untouched forests. We created this experience to transport you into a Jurassic world, showcasing New Zealands unique plants and wildlife.

Ask as many questions as you'd like and capture the moments with pictures and videos (although we have free photos of your experience for you after the tour).

Theres good reason we have been named the best nature activity in the world! come and see for yourself!

    Loved this tour! Was so much fun and Steph and Jake our guides really made the experience. I'd done the same tour about 9 years ago and it was brilliant to see the rejuventation of the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve and the ongoing conservations efforts of this incredible company. Well done!

    Excellent few hours. Good fun and nice to see the environmental work they are doing. Very safe and a beautiful forest to boot. Don’t miss it.

    Everything about this tour was brilliant! We chose this tour because it was in a virgin forrest with proceeds going towards conservation of the forrest. The guides are also working with the conservation of the forrest and very knowledgeable about the forrest and the flora and fauna which I loved. The circuit was amazing in terms of both the wonderful ziplines and the scenery and environmental experience. The guides were very friendly and humorous and made you feel so safe. Loved the really long zipline with the very best views of ancient trees and ferns. I particularly loved the opportunity to zipline upside down - awsome!!!! Thank you

    We had a great time on the Rotorua Canopy Tours - Original Tour. The zip lines were a bit scary at first but ended up being so much fun! Same with the swing bridges. Our guides (Alex and Jesse) were knowledgeable about the native forest and did such a great job making this a safe and yet exhilarating experience. Definitely would recommend booking!!

    We had the best day ever, one of the best experiences I've ever had, our tour guides were amazing and so knowledgable, took the time to get to know us and made us feel comfortable!

    The Rotorua canopy tour was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that also taught me about how hard they work to make it pest-free. The guides were super friendly and helpful. The views were the best I have ever seen and the photo spots were perfect. Just incredible!

    The views were absolutely stunning and our guides (Jared and Harry) were incredibly helpful and informative. Any questions we had they were happy to answer. I was particularly nervous about the whole ordeal but because of the cheeriness of the guides I ended up confident enough to try zipline upside down (at their instruction of course). Definitely recommend!
