Information not currently available.
Approximately 5 hours
Located on beautiful Waiheke Island, Eco Zip offers nature-lovers, young and old, a state-of-the-art, dual zip-line and New Zealand native forest encounter; making it one of Auckland's newest, most accessible and exciting eco-tourism experiences.
Take the ferry to Waiheke Island and enjoy a mini-tour of the island's wonderful beaches, multi-million-dollar properties and myriad boutique wineries en route to the zip-line site. The purpose-built visitor center is situated high on a hillside and providing commanding views of Auckland, Rangitoto Island and the Hauraki Gulf.
Check in, gear up, and get ready for one of New Zealand's most exciting eco-activities. Three dual zip lines, each more than 650 feet long, will fly you smoothly and safely, side-by-side with a partner or friend, over the working vineyard and then over and into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native New Zealand bush (forest).
Expert guides are dedicated to ensuring your enjoyment and safety. At the end of the third zip-line, follow your guide on an interpretive walk back to the visitor center, shaded by a canopy of both regenerating and pre-European forest.
Along the way the guides will share the stories of the local flora and fauna, the Maori and European history of Waiheke Island and explain how Eco Zip is helping to both restore and preserve this Site of Environmental Significance.
Return to downtown Auckland by ferry.
