Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this adventure is sure to excite nature lovers...

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!

Skagway was a stop on our Alaskan cruise with Norwegian. The van driver gave us a brief tour/history of the city on our way to the site. Ziplining was on my bucket list, but I was afraid to do it. I am glad I chose to do this specific company to do it with.The course is not super extreme, but... More

They both took their time in explaining how to do the course properly, and gave up tips on how to do some tricks. We would highly... More

This was the best excursion we did on our trip. From the time we got on the bus with with JDot and then the Mog ride up the mountain we were hooked. Our guides Cassidy and Zippy Zach were competent, hilarious, and on point.. They taught us tricks, made us feel safe and it was over much too soon. We... More

Booked this through Princess Cruises for $179.95 - 4 hours began with a van driven by Kevin Kaspnzk...gave good background about Skagway and narrated the 30 minute drive to the site. Young guides on the ziplines but very professional. Son and I had a great time - excellent value!

This was a shore excursion from a cruise. My teen daughter and I had the BEST experience ever. The beautiful scenery on our ride up to the course and throughout the course made it the best zipline trip ever. There were 10-11 zipline stands and a few suspension bridges. How awesome is that!? Our guides, Caleb and Tyler, were spectacular!... More

The staff at this company is so wonderful; simply cannot say enough! Alyssa, Charlie, Taylor and Kelsey to name a few, helped to make this experience memorable, fun and safe! When I needed to stop mid-way through the course, each and everyone of the staff made me feel OK about it and that was quite important to me. Safety and... More

Makayla and Tyler rocked. They were our guides through the 11 zipline stations through the rain forest. It was fun and exhilarating. We learned tricks (which many in our group did) and had a wonderful time. So if you are looking for a bit of fun and also enjoy the beauty and splendor of the Alaskan Rainforest! Take a chance...

Beautiful scenery, amazing fun! We had a great time with our kids and grandkids making our way along the course through the trees on the ziplines and suspension bridges. Our grandkids had a blast and stayed thoroughly entertained as their nerves were calmed in the beginning and continual jokes were being told between us and our guides. Ducky and Charlie,... More
