Get a running start on solid ground and take flight into the treetops of the Alaskan rainforest, and over glacially fed waterfalls!The fun begins with an entertaining historic tour through downtown Skagway, then along 9 miles of stunning coastline. When you arrive at our base in Dyea, you will climb into our customized unimog—an all-wheel drive vehicle necessary for getting up our rugged mountain road. During your adventurous ride up the mountain, look out at the impressive rainforest and glacially fed waterfalls. Get psyched—you’re about to fly over this wild landscape!At the top of the mountain, you will suit up in gear that meets the most rigorous standards of safety while your highly trained guide tells you what to expect and how to safely navigate the course. You will then be led to the take-off zone, where you’ll be clipped in and fly away! You’ll soar through a course of 11 ziplines, the longest measuring 750ft—that’s longer than 2 football fields combined! This is more than just any zip course, though. Our lines will bring you directly above glacially fed waterfalls! For the more cautious adventurers, rest assured that you can always control your own speed with a brake system—but we “double-dog” dare you to let go and zoom up to 45 miles per hour! Of course, that’s a little too fast to take those perfect pictures of the Alaskan wilderness. That’s why we added 4 state of the art suspension bridges to our course. From these bridges, you’ll be able to capture stunning photos of you and your loved ones in the heart of Alaska’s wild beauty. This is bound to be an “E.X.C.U.R.S.I.O.N. of a lifetime,” one you will surely remember for years to come! « less

I loved how we got to see and hear about the town on the drive to the base camp. Our driver pointed out local year round business' which I made a point to go to. :) The scenery was incredible and I was able to pet some puppies at base camp!! It was the best day ever. Freddy & Colin... More

This expedition is amazing and the group of guides are the best. My sister and I had never zip lined so naturally we were a little nervous but after gearing up and taking that first leap I was hooked. So a great big THANKS to Autumn, Curt, Dillon, Fast Freddy and the entire crew for an experience of a lifetime.... More

My husband and I just did this excursion, Sept 2014, through Norwegian Cruise line. This was a first for the both of us and I was terrified. The guides were amazing and made it not scary at all. We got to learn tricks and poses and do all sorts of things we didn't know we would get to experience! Our... More

We took the Grizzly Falls Zip Line Expedition in Skagway, AK and it was a blast! We were picked up at the pier and shuttled to Grizzly Falls. We were put in the capable hands of Nate and Caroline. Right off we were told that their company used two harnesses, upper and lower, so that they were the safest and...their... More

For a beginner, i was nervous. But the really fabulous staff at Grizzly helped you get geared up and taught you what to do. Don't be afraid, great trip.

Me and my sister went on the ziplines and had the time of our lives. First let me start off by saying our guides, Caroline and Brandi, were absolutely amazing.
