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

This tour is the absolute best! The guides were amazing and it was extremely safe. Breathtaking views through the forest and over rivers. If you want the thrill of adventure then this is the tour for you!

This was my first ziplining experience and I had a blast ! The guides were the best !! They made sure that you were safe at all times while making sure you were having fun. I even did a flip on one of the last runs. Very energetic crew here !! They were making us laugh, which made me forget... More

Fantastic experience for my husband and I. Both in our 60's but never too old. (We were celebrating our 45 anniversary and had the opportunity to take the last Holland America Gold Rush Tour) The Grizzly Ziplining was not offered on-board the cruise but one excursion I booked separately. Our guides were patient, encouraging and made everything a lot of... More

I have berm ziplining in several Places around the world but this was a great experience! They allow you to do flips and tricks on the lines which is so rare! They aren't the longest or fastest lines I have ever been on but the staff was great and friendly. It's super cool that you get to take an off... More

My family (including 2 kids: 7 and 10) had a terrific time at Grizzly Falls. Our guides, Ross & Freddie, were terrific. It was a great combination of thrills (the trust fall was one of the scarier things I've done), accomplishment (front flips are easy and a great payoff), and a feeling of safety. The entire facility feels very new... More

We had a wonderful time doing this excursion while in Skagway! We so enjoyed our time with the guys who took us through the course that we asked to stay and do it again if they could get us to the next port! We had never been zip lining before and now we are feeling like pros after this experience.... More

Our family had a blast zip lining. We booked directly through the company rather than our cruise line and saved money. They pick you right up at the cruise dock and had us back at the time they promised. Our guides were wonderful and fun. I think it was Alto and can't remember the other great guy - sorry) I... More

We had a great time zipping with this company. Truly the best zip lining I will probably ever experience. The guides were knowledgeable and kind even when my fear was getting the best of me! This is an all weather event and the rain didn't stop our enjoyment one bit. I would caution about wearing too much clothing. The activity... More

Your journey sets off right from the ship with Anne one of the funniest tour guides!! She tells you everything about the town and the landscape and adds humor as you travel about 30 minutes to the destination. The view from the bus is absolutely beautiful!! Once you get there, you get put into a "Mercedes" to go to the... More

Freddie and Stash were our guides. They were the best. There was no time they were not aware of safety. They were great help for this old 70 plus year old lady from texas...If you have time and the nerve DO this ...ask for these two guys as they were the best. margaret
