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!

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

I took my mum who is 68 and scared of heights and they were fantastic with her and she had an amazing time and grinned a lot!!! There was even a young boy with our group and he had a... 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

Who wants to go ziplining? Not 2 almost 60 year olds! But we DID it...with Will & JT's help. Beautiful scenery. Staff that actually made me tear up when we were done. Per a local EMT taking her parents out on this excursion; "this one is WAY safer then the other one". Yay...but??? It was a very challenging trip. The... More

This was by far the best zip lining I have ever done! It was one of the big highlights on my cruise to Alaska! The course itself was incredible beautiful. You had the opportunity to zip across the Grizzly Falls. Our group was made up of six people, accompanied by two amazing guides, Dusty & Devon. Unlike other courses I've... More

I have been zip lining several times and this was by far the best experience. Every group is accompanied by two guides, one who goes in the front to catch each person, and one who stays in the back to hook everyone up to the zip line. Our guides, Devin and Dusty were so entertaining and had everyone laughing so... More
