This is the ultimate way to explore the treetops and the breath-taking lake views.

Relive the sounds, sights and smells of a time before men left their indelible imprint upon nature. This is New Zealand in all of its glory and you will never forget it! You’ll find yourself standing near the top of towering native trees; flying across fern-clad valleys that have stood untouched for 1000 years and climbing suspended staircases and bridges that will blow your mind.
