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

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

We took the Grizzly Falls Zip line from a cruise with Celebrity. We chose the early one so we left the ship at 7:30 Am Sept 2014. Luckily we were the only ones so we had a very special time. After abut a 30 minutebus ride out to the camp we got started. There are 10 or 11 different Iines... 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.

My 11 year old, 20 year old and husband took this excursion from a Holland America cruise ship. They has the time of their lives! They got picked up in a minibus from near the ship and had a scenic drive for approximately 35 minutes to the base of the zip-lining site (which is the same base for dog mushing... More

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. They made the experience extremely enjoyable with their wit and humor, I think their boss ought to buy them a drink for being such wonderful guides ;) oh and I... More

Looking for and exhilarating adventure in Skagway? We were... and we found it at Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition. The excitement starts with a steep ride up the mountain through a beautiful Alaskan rainforest in a Mercedes Unimog. All the Unimogs are painted in a unique theme. We road the Transformer Bumblebee version and saw Jurassic Park and Snow White versions... More

Grizzly Falls Ziplining in Skagway was AMAZING! Brandy, Carolyn, Collin & Freddy were incredible guides. Our family, all first-timers, ranged in age from 10 to 78 and were thrilled by the exhilarating experience. Our experienced, fun-loving, daredevil guides had a challenge for us at each of the 9 zip lines...'hang upside down, do a flip, spin as fast as you... More

I have long wished to "ride" a zip line! So, I decided to finally do it on the Alaska trip. After reading all the reviews of the various zip lines, I decided on Grizzly Falls and I was not disappointed. It is a beautiful setting for a zip line and the ride to the mountain and the ride up the... More
