This tree-top adventure unforgettable. Our group of eight was the perfect size for all the landing areas. Even those who were scared of heights felt comfortable with all the safety precautions. Beautiful scenery, beautiful guides and a memorable experience.

We had a wonderful experience with this zipline. There were 8 of us "60 somethings" with varying levels of experience. Amanda and Taylor were absolutely fabulous -- their attitudes, humor and helpfulness made it truly a great experience! The equipment and safety measures used were top rate, and the breathtaking beauty of the site was awesome! Thanks for a great... More

Thorough, patient and encouraging are three words that come to my mind. At age 61, this was my first experience with zip lines, Joel and Emily were fabulous. I amazed myself and my son! We had a wonderful experience. Thanks!

We had a great time. The weather was simply gorgeous with beautiful blue skies. The area was gorgeous, equipment top notch and staff wonderful. We've been on zip lines in many vacation destinations and this one was one of the best. Thanks!

Thank you for the positive feedback! We never let the weather dampen our spirits at the zipline and enjoy zipping rain or shine. I'm excited that you were able to catch a sunny day in Juneau, the views can really be amazing on a clear day but just as beautiful on a cloudy one too! We feel honored that we... More

My wife talked me into this adventure as I am afraid of heights. Best decision for an excursion while on our Alaskan cruise. Oliver and Joel were exceptionally friendly and reassuring, especially to me re:my fear of heights. It was the most fantastic experience! On the final zip line I amazed myself by letting go and twirling. What a blast,... More

This was a great adventure with a great team! The course design and construction are solid - as are the harnesses and safety instruction - so no worries! Taylor and Emily were our guides. They're the best! Super friendly and fun. Hard to find a better way to spend an afternoon than zipping through the rainforest. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed this excursion while visiting Juneau on a cruise. We were shuttled by a friendly girl, greated with smiles and orientated. We walked a path to the first platform after being equipped with our gear and helmet. I have zipped before and now see that this outfit is much more safety aware as they checked our gear and did...

I can't recommend this enough! Tracey & Caroline helped me check off zip lining from my bucket list for my 65th birthday. What fun!!!! The apprehension of taking that first step was huge, but I felt very confident and was totally exhilarated by the experience! I would do it again in a heartbeat! And it was a cold rainy day.....I...

What a fun thing to do for your birthday and glad you were able to check ziplining in an Alaska Rainforest off from your bucket list! Once you take that initial "leap of faith" it is really all downhill from that point! Our guides really try to be encouraging and supportive to help nervous zippers off each platform! We also...
