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!

My husband and my two son's, ages 11 and 8, went zip lining at Grizzly Falls. The guides make this fun experience even better. Grizzly, Caleb, Ducky....were fun and made you feel safe. They love their jobs, and each other, which really shows. My boys are still talking about how this experience is right up there at the top during... More

We zip lined with this outfit last week. (Me, hubby, stepmom). We booked this independently for our cruise stop in Skagway. Everything was well done - from being picked up at the ship, to the actual course & back to the ship. Our driver was friendly, informative and didn't mind answering questions. Our guides were so much fun. I would... More

For a few years, I've had this strange desire to try zip lining, despite the fact that I don't really LOVE heights. So when we booked a trip of a lifetime to Alaska for July 2016, and I saw zip lining on the excursion lists, I decided this was the time. And what an incredible time it was! There were... More

It was my friends idea to go zip lining and I have a fear of heights but our guides Clarissa and Tyler made me feel very comfortable right away. I thought for sure I wouldn't let go of the ropes but I did almost immediately. They kept us safe and kept us laughing the entire time making the experience unforgettable.... More

Our 2 guides (Taylor and Clarissa) made this so fun. The zip lining itself is an enjoyable experience. They added an element of adventure by showing us tricks to try (flips, spins, upside down,etc). The area is beautiful with tall trees and rivers running thru the area. It's highly recommended for those who want to get a little thrill on... More

Zipping over the Grizzly Falls was awesome. The guides were great. Very safe including being attached in between the different lines. Small groups - 2 guides with a group of about 7 or 8. Bring your camera/phone if you have a pocket that zips. Lots of opportunities to take photos and videos. The guides will also take one for you... More

I traveled with my two teen girls. They had so much fun and enjoy the scenery . I booked directly with the company instead of the cruise ship because it offer " walk along" price for me, I only went there with my girls without doing the ziplining. I have called many times before I booked this tour and the... More
