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!

So glad we picked Grizzly Falls! Couldn't have asked of a better time. Our guides, Corey and KT were patient, encouraging, and FUN! They had all of us confident enough to try flips and dance moves and trust falls and ... I don't want to try zip lining anywhere else, they set the bar so high!

There were six of us visiting Skagway on a cruise. Parents, Grammie, two young teenagers and a nine year old, and everyone of us had a blast. The group is organized well, obviously trained for safety well, and full of hilarious fun, This was ziplining Plus. Having zipped before, I can safely say that this was so different it was... More

We went ziplining with this group as an excursion on a recent cruise. We were greeted with cheers as we arrived at the site. It was clear from the start that they knew what they were doing. The distribution of safety gear and the explanations were clear. Our small group ziplined with Ben and Fin - what a great couple... More

We picked this ziplining adventure while on an Alaskan cruise and it was by far my favorite part of the whole trip. John and Sander were our guides and were AWESOME! This isn't your standard run of the mill zipline adventure. With every single line that goes over the forest and waterfalls, your guides teach you how to do different... More

You have to do this trip! I do not like heights at all and was a little freaked out when the whole family booked this excursion from our cruise. But all those fears were smashed when going down the first zipline. There are 11 lines that you go on and they just run from tree to tree all the way... More

We had an excellent experience ziplining! I was a bit apprehensive at the beginning of the tour as we had never been ziplining before and we have young kids, 7 and 8 years old. Our guides, Matt and Aaron, were the best. They were extremely professional and set our minds at ease at the same time. They were also awesome... More

Highly rercommended, we had a great time. Guides Jojo and Finn were very professional, entertaining and above all safe. Any level of fitness can be accommodated, do the flips or take it easy. We had a ball thank you. Australian Passengers of MS Noordam

We loved our bus driver who described all the sites on our drive. Our guides Aaron and Ross were incredibly patient and encouraging, yet they spurred us on to try lots of neat flips and things. They paid careful attention to safety as they hooked and unhooked us. The scenery, ziplines, camaraderie, and just everything were incredible! We were four... More

While it seemed a little pricey to book, we all felt it was well worth it by the end. Gorgeous location, hard working staff, fun fun fun! We had a rainy day but the ziplines were well within the tree canopy, above a gorgeous river and waterfalls, and we really didn't get very wet.
