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!

This was so much fun for everyone in our group of eight, especially for the 8 year old who was ziplining for the first time. I am so grateful for the absolutely delightful manner of the guides who helped him conquer his fears, including a fear of heights! By the third line, he followed their example, and did tricks off...

We booked this through the cruise line (Princess) in May (2016). The ride to the site was made very interesting by the driver, Joseph. The trip to the top of the mountain was in an open bus that allowed wonderful views on the way up. The zip lining was wonderful. We had 2 guides to only 4 of us. Great... More

Fun day ziplining with our 15- and 18-year-old boys. Gorgeous views zipping over the roaring waters of Grizzly Falls. Definitely one of the most scenic we've been on, and the only zipline we've been on that teaches tricks to jump off the platforms: forward flips, ceiling fans, fireballs, backward drops. All the staff are very fun and so professional.

I went last week with my two teenage girls and their couple of friends. Our guides, Devon and Michaela, were awesome with all of us! I would definitely recommend this excursion for anyone visiting Skagway.

The kids had a blast on the Ziplining tour. The kids are 11 years old and 8 years old and they were able to do all the zips. The guides were fun and entertaining. The scenery is amazing.

Having never zip lined before, was a little anxious. The fun and confident guides put us at ease instantly. The made sure we understood safety was first. After the first zip line I was ready for more! The group had a great time and was sad when it ended. Beautiful scenery also!

We did the best excursion ever. The Grizzly Falls Team was amazing. We had several first timers and they were great on making them comfortable and getting past being nervous. For the more experienced they showed us how to do tricks to make it even more exciting. Top it off with the very personal interactions, they made us feel like... More

This was my first time to Zipline. What a great time we had. They have 9 lines of various types. We had great guides. Clarissa was our guide, great teacher and had some really great moves to teach. Flips, etc. our kids loved. The drive to the site was interesting. Good sightseeing if you have a good bus driver. Ours... More

We had the adventure of a lifetime ziplining in Grizzly Falls. Our guides, Finn and BK were phenomenal. They worked with my youngest son (12) who is afraid of heights to help him get comfortable with the ziplining and by the last line he stopped holding on! The tour was so good and guides so awesome that we are still... More
