Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this adventure is sure to excite nature lovers...

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!

The guides were great, the tricks were great (even though I was a big chicken and wouldn't do anything). I definitely suggest doing this while you're in Skagway!! Our trip was in June so I can't remember our guides' names or I would send a shout out to them!

This place is awesome, when I went sadly there best line was closed for maintenance but other than that it's pretty cool. Know the catch is "it's pretty expensive (overpriced). But if you have the money and are looking for a great day this is the place for you! 👌🏻👍🏻

We had a great time. The ride up reminded me of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. Very bumpy. There were six of us in our group, plus our two guides, Kevin and Sean. Our guides were really fun, adding enormously to the experience. It was nice to have a small group, so we weren't stuck waiting a long time... More

We were on Alaskan Cruise July 2015. Thrilling, Invigorating, Safe! There were 6 in our group, ages 17-50. beautiful drive then we saw some dogs training to be future mushers before boarding an Umogi to drive up to the lines. Excellent Guides. I believe we had Sean and ?Ben. They had us flipping and flying thru the air. Worth the... More

This was sooooooo much fun. We were picked up from the pier where our cruise line was docked and enjoyed a pleasant drive out of town with a lovely young man who gave us some local history along the way. Our zip guides Finn and Grizz were fabulous and their energy and enthusiasm was contagious and made the experience even... More

I loved this! I've ziplined in a few other places, including the Mexican rainforest, but this was by far the best. The variety of the zip lines was great (length, height, etc.) and the stops were super smooth. But the guides were by far the best part of the adventure - we nicknamed them "Flippin'" and "Awesome", AKA Kurt and... More

My wife and i signed up with ncl (our cruise ship). From the pick up point to the end it was handled very professionally. The staff made you feel very comfy and safe. They encouraged you to try tricks and really enjoy the experience. I would go back again. I would recommend this trip. It is worth the money.
