Ziplining in Skyline Gondola, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand

Speed:
Up to 43mi/70km per hour
Level:
All
Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports and adventure activities. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.

The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate can be characterized as oceanic,  with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.

Extreme sport lovers can enjoy ziplining (or flying fox, as many prefer to call it) on Skyline Gondola Hill, surrounded by the magnificent wild forests and landscape.

Moa 4-Line tour is for beginners who wish to build up their confidence first. Your journey up in the air is slow and low in the beginning, and it gradually becomes faster and higher. Kea 6-Line tour is addressed to the more confident sportsmen who wish to enjoy flying fox with speeds up to 43 mi/70 km per hour. The alpine view is just breathtaking!
