About Alaska Canopy Adventures
The tour starts with a 10 minute jet boat ride across Gastineau Channel. At the beach you meet your guides and they will escort you up to the outfitting shelter for a thorough orientation. After getting geared up and loaded onto our Mercedes Benz Unimog you will ride up the mountain to the top of the course. There is a short up-hill hike to the first platform from which you will descend through the trees and over the ruins of the Treadwell Gold Mine. There are 10 ziplines, 2 suspension bridges and you finish the course with a 42 foot rappel returning to ground near the outfitting shelter. Before you get back on the boat, we have a small shop where you can purchase an action photo from the last zipline or a t-shirt or sweatshirt to remember your excursion. The tour lasts a total of 3 hours and 15 minutes. Come fly through trees with us!

Outstanding! Our guides, Adam and Ivan, were fun, funny, and personable. Everyone in the group was awesome, but then who wouldn't be on a zipline excursion?

Our guides Ivan and Greg showed us a great time. They were so safety conscious, we were always tied in. We were seniors on our first time on a zipline. It was great fun! The old growth forest and streams below were amazing.

This was my first ziplining experience & I was extremely nervous. The guides helped me feel confident & secure so I was relaxed enough to enjoy the views. Our entire group had a blast & it was a memorable adventure! Thanks Syd & Salix!!!

I might not prefer to do it if he had surgery that recently. There’s some parts of it that can be demanding. You also have to hold your knees up when breaking on the zip line. It’s a great overall experience though.
