    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Please arrive at our HQ on Fairy Springs Road 15 minutes prior to the tour departure, or just let us know at the time of your booking where you would like to be picked up from – all of our tours include a complementary pick-up and drop-off from any central Rotorua location if required. You’ll check-in, meet your authentic kiwi guides, and we’ll get you into your ziplining harness. Then we drive out to the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve, just 10 minutes from our HQ. Step into a lost world and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native eco-systems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand. Immerse yourself in this breathtaking country the way it once was – and hear the inimitable birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru and Tomtits in their natural habitat. Just by being on the tour, you are already contributing to the conservation effort, as part of your ticket price goes towards the programme to restore the beautiful forest and remove all introduced pests.  Please allow 3.5 hours for your tour (from the time you arrive at our headquarters until you return)
