Thrill-seekers and nature lovers... You have arrived in Paradise! Embark on an adventure like no other as you soar through Lord of the Rings country on the Paradise Zipline. This zipride Queenstown adventure begins with a short 10 minute drive from Glenorchy towards the Paradise Valley. With multiple ziplines to conquer, your expert Paradise Zipline guide will first provide a thorough safety briefing and zipline training before starting the tour.

It's then time to embark on one of the best zipline experiences in Queenstown. Enjoy a short nature walk through the native forest before braving the first of eight ziplines. Each Paradise zipline offers a unique perspective of the surrounding scenery, from views of Mt Aspiring National Park to dramatic gorges and alpine streams. Along the way, look out for the Orc Chasm, a 200 metre zipline that takes you through a beautiful tree-carved canyon and an alpine waterfall. Another favourite is the zipline over the beautiful Blue Lagoon, which you will find towards the end of your zipride in Queenstown.
