The tour starts with a 10 minute jet boat ride across Gastineau Channel. At the beach you meet your guides and they will escort you up to the outfitting shelter for a thorough orientation. After getting geared up and loaded onto our Mercedes Benz Unimog you will ride up the mountain to the top of the course. There is a short up-hill hike to the first platform from which you will descend through the trees and over the ruins of the Treadwell Gold Mine. There are 10 ziplines, 2 suspension bridges and you finish the course with a 42 foot rappel returning to ground near the outfitting shelter. Before you get back on the boat, we have a small shop where you can purchase an action photo from the last zipline or a t-shirt or sweatshirt to remember your excursion. The tour lasts a total of 3 hours and 15 minutes.

Come fly through trees with us!

It absolutely POURED the day we were supposed to go ziplining, which had me a little worried from the beginning. However, once we got into the trees you could barely tell it was raining! The only down part about the rain was that when you did use the ziplines you almost had to close your eyes because the water off... More

The young man who was the catcher, Billy, ruined this zip line adventure for me. He was rude. My first Zip lining I hit a tree which incurred massive bruising. Instead of asking if I were okay, he yelled at me, told me if I do it again he'd call ground crew to take me off. I asked him to... More

I was reluctant on doing a Zipline but it was on our daughter's bucket list so away we went. It was an adventure for sure and am glad we did it in Juneau! Our guides Thor and Kelsey were great. There were 5 of us in our group and we all just loved it. 2 of the 5 have been... More

Great zip line. We have done Zip lines in Mexico, Canada and several spots in the US. This was up there in the top. Uber safe (double everything and well kept gear) great guides who were focused on your safety and then fun. The platforms are up in the trees and kind of small. If you are not a fan... More

I went on this tour reluctantly but was really glad I did. They are very efficient and focused on safety A total of 9 runs plus a couple of suspension bridges. We had beautiful weather but expect some sort of rain or drizzle

This was a great choice for the one thing we had time to do while our cruise was in port. Kathryn and Marian ,aka the Beast and Batma'am, were a lot of fun. Highly recommend this whether seasoned veteran or a newby to ziplining. If we ever make it back to Juneau, maybe we'll get lucky enough to do this... More

While in port in Juneau on a Disney cruise, we went on the "Alaska’s Ultimate Canopy & Zipline Expedition". It included 9 ziplines, 2 suspension bridges, and a rappel down. The staff was very professional and safety conscious; though they were a ton of fun, it was clear they make safety their #1 priority, which is pretty darned important when... More

Completed one short practice zip line followed by 10 longer ones high among the tree tops as well as two long swinging bridges. Was terrified at first but was encouraged by two well trained and very friendly guides – Kathryn and Gabby who were extremely safety-conscious - thank heavens. Would recommend the company to anyone who wants to challenge themselves... More

My daughter and I had a blast!!! The 10 different zip lines were so much fun! Zeke and Kelsey were our guides --- they were fantastic! The weather was cool and wet, which is the norm in Juneau. The good news is the wet weather makes for speedy lines. We can't say enough great things about this fantastic adventure.

I never imagined that I would be able to jump off a ridiculously high platform in the middle of a huge forrest and not be terrified. Thanks to the fabulous Billy and his partner whose name starts with a K (I'm sorry) I felt safe and secure the whole time I was flying above giant trees and old gold mines.
