The World’s longest flying fox adventure – in Nelson!
The Skywire is the first of its kind – and it’s our own invention!
Set high on forest hills above the sea and river valleys this is an amazing innovation and a superb eco ride. You soar like a bird for over 3km, up to 150m above beautiful native forest. You experience high speeds mixed with absolute quiet while admiring the 1000 shades of green below.
Securely fastened in one of four racing car seats in the Skywire chair, your ride takes you both forwards and BACKWARDS for nearly ten minutes of thrilling adventure. The first 800m freewheeling drop can reach 100kph yet many say the fast backwards run is the most unforgettable moment. Universally appealing to all this unique concept attracts those who want a thrilling ride yet also feel secure in the highest standard of equipment safety.
A ride on the Skywire can easily be combined with any of our famous quad bike tours for a great half-day of adventure! If you wish to ride on the Skywire only, please allow about an hour to complete the trip. This will include a minibus ride up to the Skywire base where you can see stunning coastal views. Your journey has an optional nature talk including a visit to the stunning Mareikura (noble lady), the world’s oldest Matai tree.
