Exciting and Fun! Imagine flying through the air and checking out the critters of the forest and the trees in a completely different perspective from that of the “common ground person”. That’s right, a zip line canopy tour takes you on a close personal experience with nature. After checking in, meeting your stellar one-of-a-kind guides, gearing up and completing final safety checks, you enter into the forest by zipping from tree to tree – high up in the tree canopy! You will soar through the air effortlessly and you will never forget the beauty of Lake Lanier – as seen from above.If you are more of that adrenaline junkie make sure you try out our Pine Isle tour. 11 zip lines total with 5 of the 11 over a 1000ft long! This tour is not for the weak at heart. This tour is a true zip line tour going all around the shores of Lake Lanier. So if you are looking for a nice relaxing day or if you feel the need for speed, Lake Lanier Canopy Tours has it all. Come zip with us soon!

Yes! The zip over the lake is definitely a highlight on our Legacy course. So glad you agree! Perhaps next time you will try our Pine Isle course which will give you some spectacular panoramic views from ABOVE the trees!! ~ Sandi More

Cold, clear and sunny december day offered us the privilege to enjoy an exclusive tour for just the two of us! We did the 7 zipline tour offering spectacular vistas across the lake. It was great fun and the glorious finale was the tigger bounce;-)))

October in a park on Lake Lanier. I bet it WAS beautiful! Sounds like you got a lot of ground work in. Let us know when you're ready to experience the views from above the trees and we'll get you set up with a reservation to come zipping! ~ Sandi More

Went yesterday with grandparents to Lake Lanier specifically for the Canopy Tour. It was located in a nice area. The entire course was about an hour long. The two tour guides Maria and Phil were very trustworthy, helpful, and nice! Overall, the whole course and trip was very very fun and I would definitely go and do it again!

Wonderful chance to get to spend time with grandparents! Sounds like you did our Express Tour. It's a great course when you only have an hour to spend. You should bring your grandparents back and experience our newly designed and located Express Tour. It's still an hour but now by Lake Lanier's shoreline. ~ Sandi More

We did our team building and had a great time. Our guides were wonderful and made it easy for us. The rules and directions were easy to follow and our guides (Hannah) were pretty funny too. Would definitely do it again

Glad you had a great time. Hannah (or 'The Tall One' as we lovingly call her around here) is one of our Senior Lead guides with hundreds of tours, so I've no doubt she made your day easy. When you make your reservation to zip with us again be sure to request her if you'd like! ~ Sandi More

First off, I have done zip-lining at many places around the world. The course here, was not beautiful compared to Alaska or South America, but the staff was amazing! They were super friendly and liked to have fun. Most importantly, they made sure everyone was safe! Good tour for people with families!

Yes!!! We keep telling the Boss Man to take us on a field trip to Alaska and South America. I'll use your review as proof, haha. Ya know, see other zipline places. Then again, like you said our staff is AMAZING. Not sure we'd get that anywhere else. ~ Sandi More

Did the legacy tour with my three kids, youngest 9. They all had a ball. Staff was really great, helpful and friendly. I gave it 5 stars for the facilities, price and this level of difficulty. Personally I like something with a little more challenge but taking the whole family can get pretty expensive these days. My kids loved the... More
