Kaikōura Ziplining & Native forest trail

Kaikōura Ziplining & Native forest trail

Set amongst native bush on a working farm just 15 minutes south of Kaikōura township, EcoZip Adventures is an award-winning adventure and eco-tourism destination, offering state-of-the-art flying-fox ziplines and a beautiful, eco-immersive experience. Dedicated to lovers of nature and adventure of all ages, you’ll enjoy ‘the complete Kaikōura experience’, riding a series of 5 giant flying-fox ziplines side-by-side through beautiful Rakanui Station. The experience comprises native-tree covered hills, verdant valleys, braided rivers, cascading waterfalls, rolling farmland and spectacular 360 degree views. Crossing the Kahutara river in our 4X4 vehicle, taking in the sweeping views of South Bay - home to Kaikōura’s whale watching fleet and the Kaikōura peninsula, where Maui placed his heel to steady himself as he hauled North Island from the ocean - enjoy commentary from our team of expert, local guides, before completing 5 epic ziplines, ranging from 200 - 620m in length, followed by a walk back to base through our native tree nursey and regenerating forest - conservation is at the heart of our business. Our twin cables make this a unique experience as, unlike other zipline tours, you can fly side-by-side with a friend or family member down lines more than 2.2km in length. At EcoZip Adventures, you'll find we've turned a usually solo experience in to a highly social one! Join us and experience fun, excitement, laughter and adventure. We know you won’t be disappointed!
