Love lush native forests, a touch of adventure and creating unique family memories on holiday? Here are five reasons to skip the crowds and take the family on a canopy tour!
Fly high above a native forest
A New Zealand native forest looks incredibly different from the air than from on the ground. With a canopy tour, you’ll explore via zipline high above the forest canopy. The adrenaline rush of flying high above lush trees and ferns, with the only sounds the whoosh of the zipline and the call of birdsong, is pure magic.
From tomtits to North Island Robins, wood pigeons and shining cuckoos, the forest now hums with the call of native birdsong. This is a result of the conservation efforts of the Rotorua Canopy Tours team, who are working hard to restore the whole forest to how it would have existed in pre-human times – no rats, stoats or possums; and native birds as far as the eye could see. They’ve done a fantastic job so far – if you’re lucky, a tiny North Island Robin may even eat out of your hand! A portion of your ticket price goes towards the conservation project. The combination of adventure, adrenaline and rare native birds makes this an experience that’s second-to-none.
Small groups, friendly guides
Avoid the crowds with a Rotorua Canopy Tour. This is a small group experience with a maximum of 10 people in your group – there’s no mass tourism here! Soak up the eco-knowledge and love for the outdoors from your two kiwi guides. We all learn eachother’s names, we experience the activity together, we become friends and have a laugh – it’s an awesome way to make memories to last a lifetime!
Perfect for all members of the family, a Rotorua Canopy Tour will help you to forget the world for a few hours and soak up the beauty of a native forest from the air. We promise it will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Visit our website for more information, or book directly online here.
