Why should I visit in winter?

Summer in Coromandel is obviously a whole lot warmer, but the native forest is spectacular in winter! The greens are greener, and the air is so fresh that you will feel more alive. We also give you the warmest and driest outdoor clothing we could find, so you will stay dry and toasty throughout the whole tour. But we do suggest bringing extra layers since you can never be too warm.

What happens if it's raining?

New Zealand’s native trees and plants love the rain, and this shows as you can see the forest thrive with a fresh natural watering. We provide the best rainwear, so you can embrace the elements and stay comfortable throughout the whole tour.

Why zipline here?

We are by no means the first zipline in the world, but we do offer a unique experience. At Coromandel Zipline Tours we use ziplining as a means to travel through the forest canopy where our knowledgeable guides will tell you the story of how this land has been transformed from historic kauri logging and gold mining, to a QEII protected regenerating native forest, home to kauri trees and kiwi. Our forest is human-made with over 27,000 hand planted native trees (9,000 of which are kauri), the inspiration of one man over his lifetime. Seeing the scale of what one person can achieve is truly inspiring.
Coromandel Zipline Tours is also the only zipline canopy tour that we know of, that uses a train to take you to the start of the first zipline.

What do I need to wear?

Although Coromandel is known for its warm and sunny climate, it can still get chilly and rainy. We always recommend dressing for the conditions and bringing an extra layer, as you can never be too prepared. We do provide high quality wet weather gear so that you can stay extra warm and dry on the tour.
You must have closed toe footwear, so no jandals or sandals sorry.

Do I need ziplining experience?

No, our tour is a passive experience. Our awesome guides do all the work so that you can kick back and have fun.

When do tours depart?

We have multiple tours every day, click here to check availability.

Can I take my own camera?

Yes! Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture all the good times throughout your tour. Bringing your camera is at your own risk and we recommend having a strap or zipped pocket to keep it safe while ziplining.
