What You Can Expect
Meet your zipline guide and receive a safety briefing and gear before heading to the first platform. Your guide gets you safely attached to the zipline and then you’re ready to start the first of your three zipline flights. Your expert guide provides personal attention to each member of your small group.
Soar above vineyards, a valley, and forest. When you reach the end of the zipline course, walk back to the visitor center on your own, following an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) path through the forest.
Celebrate the morning’s adventure as you embark on the next part of your day: lunch and wine tasting. Travel by air-conditioned coach to your first stop at Stonyridge Vineyard, one of Waiheke’s original wineries. Enjoy a wine tasting and light lunch that refuels you after the ziplining experience.
After lunch, your driver takes you to the Rangihoua Estate to taste their award-winning olive oil. Visit the olive orchards, then learn how extra virgin olive oil is made and sample several varieties in the tasting room. Next, visit Wild On Waiheke, a vineyard and winery that also brews small-batch beers. Sample their wine, beer, and other treats during your visit.
Your final stop brings you to Mudbrick Vineyard, a winery with stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf. Enjoy sipping their fine wines as you gaze over lush gardens and vineyards.
At the end of the tour, either return on a late-afternoon ferry to Auckland, or stay longer with your complimentary All Day Bus Pass to explore more of the island on your own. Ferries to Auckland run until late in the evening; check the schedule for details.
Zip Lining was amazing. The wine, beer and olive oil tasting was also a fun experience. We bought some NZ olive oil because it was so delicious. Would have liked some more sweeter wine options.
We had a great tour! The wineries were excellent, everything ran smoothly, and lunch was surprisingly delicious, the only thing was I wish we had more time to browse around the properties- it felt like we were cramming it all in. The ziplining was awesome- we had a tour all to ourselves! I loved the nature walk and this was the first time I felt like I had enough zipline time!
