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 much more than I was expecting! The tour guides are so fun and friendly, the scenery is beautiful, the falls are breathtaking! There are multiple ziplines and suspension bridges, making the tour last quite a while. I feel like I definitely got my moneys worth. And the guides teach you how to do tricks (if you want), so the... More

We had a group of 10, 2 were teenagers (16 years old). None of us had zip lined before and were very hesitant. We were divided into groups and "assigned" to Ben and Matt. They were WONDERFUL!!! Made us feel at ease and encouraged us and never pushed us, literally and figuratively! They were very helpful and knowledgeable. After much... More

A wonderful way to spend time in Skagway. Zach our driver to Grizzy Falls gave us background information on the area making the trek in the van fun and interesting. Then deep in the woods you get to have a blast laughing, screaming and being a kid (regardless of your age) as you fly through the air. Kevin and Nicole... More

We had a blast zip-lining. Our two guides, Finn and Aaron were amazing, hilarious and FUN!!!! We definitely lucked out getting them! They taught us different tricks to do on each of the zip lines. This is a must in Skagway! Thank you guys for making our 1st zip-line experience unforgettable!

Kevin and Ross were tops! 11 zip lines high over trees and water. Completely safe and rip roaring fun. Great area to visit and a beautiful part of the U.S.

Grizzly Falls Ziplining experience was the highlight of our trip. They met us at the boat promptly and brought us back with plenty of time to spare. Kevin and Shawn were our guides. They made the whole ziplining experience more than fun with all the different skits and tricks they taught us. I would highly recommend this to everyone. The... More

Ten of us, four children and six adults, ranging in age from 6 to 71 took part in this activity. The staff and location couldn't have been better.

We had only one day in Skagway and planned to make the most of it. Our afternoon adventure was to go zip lining (my first time) and we did plenty of research before choosing a company. Garrett picked us up at the pier and made sure we were all comfortable before leaving. He was an excellent tour guide pointing out... More
