Description: Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this adventure is sure to excite nature...
Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this adventure is sure to excite nature lovers and thrill seekers alike! 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!

My daughter and I as well as one other gal from our cruise signed up for this ziplining expedition. This is my second time through the course in three years and I feel just as passionate about this company as I did before. I have now been on several other ziplines and have a basis for comparison.

We took our two daughters, 9 and 11, with us on this tour and had a blast. Both girls smiled ear to ear the entire time as my husband and I did as well. It was very safety conscious and the staff was very very friendly. The off road ride up to the line was fun as well. We crossed... More

This was our final shore excursion during our NCL cruise and was, by far, the best of all excursions! Started with our driver who gave us some historical folklore on the drive to the site. Once there, we "harnessed up" and hopped in a super husky Mercedes for a ride up to the top of the course. We were divided... More

This was a fantastic experience from our pickup at the docks, transport up the mountain, and our zip lining guides. My family of 4 included my wife, my 10 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter. We were a little worried it might be tough for my daughter, but the guides were very patient, fun, and made the experience... More

My husband and I did the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition while on the Celebrity Solstice in May 2015. We had never been ziplining and were hesitant since neither of us like heights. Our guides were so cool, and knowledgeable. The first jump was never wreaking, but they made it so fun, that after the third one we felt more adventurous.... More

We had never been zip lining before - and it's gotta be downhill from here, because this place, these lines, these guides, this experience was AWESOME! We had the best time! We felt safe, we had fun, we loved the locale.... Really, truly one of the highlights of our vacation. I cannot recommend this experience more highly. Thank you!!!

My boyfriend and I had a truly awesome time at Grizzly Falls.....the guides were amazing, the scenery was spectacular, and the zip lining was so much fun! We booked the excursion before our departure (which is cheaper than booking it directly with the cruise.) We were picked up at the end of the dock by one of the seasonal workers.... More

We had tickets for the grizzly zip line adventure in Skagway. I became sick on the cruise and was quarantined. needless to say that was a disappointment. The good news is the response of the people at Alaska excursions. They came through and cheerfully refunded the full price for the tickets. We heard that we missed a great adventure that... More

We are nominating Taylor and Sam for the best zip line guides in Alaska. We would have nominated for the World, but felt they need to qualify at the state level first. We were a "Cruising" family of four looking for a good adventurous, fun excursion. Zip Lining is about fun, Taylor and Sam made sure that we had it.... More

Our family of 5 (all 18+ yrs) had a blast in our first ziplining experience. Our guides (Matthew and Lucia) were outstanding! We felt extremely safe and we were able to do some cool stunts. Highly recommended.
