Activity Overview
Ecozip and Wine: a match made in heaven

Why should you have to choose between your love of culture and your love of adrenaline packed adventures? With an Ecozip and Wine tour, you can have both at once! This exhilarating tour combines a tasting tour of some of the most stunning vineyards and wineries on Waiheke Island with a thrilling zoom down three fabulous ziplines.

Zip through some gorgeous scenery with a friend

Each of our ziplines is strategically placed on Onetangi's Trig Hill. Moreover, as each of these flying fox style ziplines can accommodate two riders at once, you can share the experience with a friend. When you land at the end of the line, an expert guide will greet you, and will take you on a short trip through some lush and inspiring native forest, explaining about the trees, birds, animals and plants that you see along the way. 

Food and wine

From cafes by the sea to delectable wineries creating the region's main varieties (which are in the vein of Syrah and Bordeaux), there are gourmet treats for everyone on the wine tour side of the trip. If you want an endorsement, you will be delighted to hear that other wine lovers who have enjoyed this experience have described it as 'the best buzz on Waiheke' and 'unbelievable fun'.
