There were a variety of cool sounding things we wanted to do on our stay in the Vancouver/Whistler area, but man am I glad we chose Ziptrek Ecotours. We did the Bear tour (although after we heard the Eagle tour and then a third option to do both combined were both better) and man was it fun! The tour consisted of a practice zip in Whistler on a sort of training set up to get the feel of zip lining, then a short drive to the trail where we walked out on to tree top platforms connected by suspension bridges. The whole area we walked around in was very cool, and there was some interesting and informative talks about the rain forest that we were in, the trees, the zip line courses, etc. Then as we walked through the woods we zip lined a few more times (5 in all if I remember correctly?) with lines of different sizes and speeds. One in particular was very very long over the valley/river rapids below and really gave you time to appreciate the surroundings, On the final zip, the guides even demonstrated how to flip upside down while zipping if you want to - and trust me, I did it, and you want to!
All in all it was a great excursion! The two guides we had were awesome, the zip lining was fun and exciting, and I would highly recommend it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your enthusiastic review of Ziptrek - much appreciated. We're thrilled that you chose to do Ziptrek among the many competing options.
Sounds like you had a blast, and you did a nice job of covering off some of the details for other readers, which I'm sure they will find informative.
