A Green Leap of Faith

Award winning eco-tourism company Ziptrek Ecotours situated high above Queenstown on Gondola hill is offering their zipline accessed treehouses as outdoor venues for intimate green weddings, musical productions and special celebrations.

Ziptrek Ecotours is New Zealand’s original zipline tour and a spectacular adventure through the forest canopy above Queenstown.

“ It is something we have wanted to do for a long time, along with the dream to one day serve food and wine on the treehouses,” says marketing manager Nicky Busst. “While Covid-19 lockdown last year was hard it gave us the opportunity to progress ideas that we’ve been passionate about for some time.”

Ziptrek’s carefully crafted treehouses are the perfect open plan venue for wedding couples and intimate groups of people to gather and experience an exceptional natural setting in the heart of Queenstown. They offer incredible views across Lake Wakatipu to The Remarkables, the ideal site to capture stunning imagery of the day.

“We have partnered with Simply Mindful Weddings who recently launched their new sustainable wedding packages making our green weddings a one stop shop for any hopeful bride and groom looking for a unique and bespoke eco-wedding option,” says Nicky.

“This is a fully immersive experience surrounded by nature and high up in the trees. You get views of Queenstown from such a different angle and it’s very appealing to adventurous souls. Weddings in general can sometimes be a wasteful one-day event so this is an opportunity to both educate and offer couples a truly sustainable option.”

“ We can completely tailor the experience to each wedding party’s needs. While most guests choose to zipline onto the treehouse decks for the wedding service, vows can also be taken at our main treehouse decks,” says Nicky.

“ You can take it to new heights with an adrenaline filled leap of faith into your marriage with the option of a Kereru jump post nuptials or continue on through the rest of the zipline course with or without your wedding party in convoy. The possibilities are many and varied but always fun.”
