The Drive

We are located in an amazing slot canyon otherwise inaccessible to the public and only 10 minutes from the picturesque town of Glenorchy, a stunning 45 minute drive from Queenstown. Ranked by many as one of the top 10 drives in the world, and one of the best things to do in Queenstown; the drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy is not to be missed during your stay! The 45 minute drive from Queenstown follows the edge of Lake Wakatipu right to the head of the lake and offers spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountain ranges.

Paradise Zipline is hands down the best, most fun experience on the South Island! Dougie & Shane were so professional, with safety always a top priority. They were also very informative about the forest and area.

Best Zipline!

Casey G, March 2022

Absolutely amazing! We have done this as well as [competitor] and definitely think this is the best by a long way! Stunning scenery, the guides were great. 10/10. We’ve done a lot of NZ ziplines and this is our favourite

Spectacular Zipline

This Zipline is spectacular. It was well worth every cent. The scenery was amazing. I have done a number of zip lines in NZ & overseas and this would be the best!
