Prepare To Go Ziplining With These Tips
While zip lining is often viewed as scary and intimidating, it is an activity that provides an unparalleled experience. There is nothing like soaring above the trees like a bird in flight, and zip lining should definitely be on everyone’s bucket lists.
Enjoi is a tour operator that offers Waiheke Island zipline tours, and in this article, we’ll provide you with some useful tips to prepare for your ziplining experience.
Wear Closed Shoes and Comfortable, Breathable Clothing
To make for a comfortable and enjoyable experience, it is best that you wear closed shoes (preferably sneakers or running shoes) and comfortable, breathable clothing like activewear.
Listen to Your Instructors
Your zipline instructor is there to help you and ensure your safety during your zipline tour. It is important to listen carefully to instructions and to ask questions if there is anything that you are not sure about. Make sure that your helmet and harness fit properly, and ask your instructor for help adjusting if needed.
Resist the Urge to Take Selfies
While you probably cannot wait to document your entire zip lining experience, it is best not to try to film or take photos while you are ziplining, as you could easily drop your phone. Most tour operators provide professional footage and photographs, so leave your phone in your bag.
Empty Your Pockets
The last thing you want is to see your wallet go flying from your pocket into a stream below you as you soar from the treetops. For this reason, it is very important that you empty your pockets before you begin your zip lining adventure. Most tour operators will provide a place where you can store your bag during the experience.
Bring Sunscreen and Bug Repellent
Ziplining is all about experiencing the great outdoors, but experiencing the great outdoors sometimes results in getting sunburnt and being swarmed by mosquitos. Luckily, preventative measures are available! Be sure to bring along some sunscreen and bug repellent to ensure that your zip lining experience is as enjoyable as possible.
