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

Our family did the Ziplining Expedition and boat trip. We loved it! The guides were fun to be with and took great care of us. They made all of us feel very safe. It was a thrill, beautiful scenery. Even our 16 year old, Preston, thought it was an adventure. From Wisconsin we say THANK YOU for a thrill to... More

Had a GREAT time at the Grizzly Falls Zipline. Bus driver, Jenny, was fun and informative to and from the location. Saw two brown bears on the trip. B.K. and Curt were great zipline hosts, Stach was the truck driver up and down. Cool but clear weather and such a GREAT experience!

We definitely recommend this Zipline in Skagway, Alaska! My husband and I had been on the zip lines in Ketchikan during our previous trip through Alaska - and they were very good, but this one was great! Awesome lines! Great views! The guides were informative, helpful and delightful. I will be booking with them again when we come back through... More

This was my first real ziplining experience and it was an amazing time! All the staff members were so fun and helpful. My guides, Colin and Katie, were hilarious and encouraged all people to at least try the tricks. They totally helped make this a great experience. The scenery was also a wonderful experience. You zip thru the rainforest and... More

A couple of days ago me, my 16 year old daughter, 19 year old niece and sister, along with some cousins, had the opportunity to go Ziplining with Grizzly Waterfall Zipline company. For four of us it was our first time ever Ziplining! We were so excited and anxious not really knowing what to expect! Our guides were Nate and... More

We have ziplined a few times in the past and really loved this experience. It was just my husband and I and we were in Skagway for the day from one of the cruise ships. The team met us at the pier and transported us to the zipline location - the guide in the bus is a longtime resident of... More

All the accolades you read about this outfit in Trip Advisor are true! We were in Skagway on an Alaskan cruise and did this as an excursion. My wife and I, and my granddaughter, had a blast. Everyone was so very professional. Kurt and Chris were just terrific guides. The area around the falls was just gorgeous. The ziplines and... More

My wife and I did this as part of our cruise excursion while in Skagway. We are so glad we chose to do this. The staff were fantastic from start to finish. Even just the drive from Skagway to where you start the zip lining was great. Rook and Stache were our zip lining guides. They are totally professional and... More

My 16 year old granddaughter and I (77) just had the best time ever Zip Lining in the tree tops above Skagway, Alaska with the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition. There were 11 zip lines, and the guides were absolutely wonderful! They were so focused on safety that we were free to just enjoy the experience. They instructed us on how... More
