Best forest canopy walkway: Redwoods Nightlights, New Zealand

As night falls in Rotorua, New Zealand, the redwood forests of this North Island town come alive with light and magic.

A gentle walk up a winding ramp brings you to the first of 27 platforms connected by secure, swinging bridges.

The experience of standing up to 65ft (20m) above the fern-covered forest floor, while surrounded by the earthy aroma of redwood trees, is enhanced by mood-lighting from hanging lanterns.

The walk is made all the more surreal by holograms of whales, which were designed to celebrate the breadth of New Zealand’s diverse ecosystems.

If you’re lucky, you may even see a nocturnal kiwi bird darting through the undergrowth. Redwoods Nightlights costs about NZ$30 (US$20), and is open from dusk.
