Alpine Zipline Adventure

Soar through a tree top zipline adventure in the Alaska rainforest on mountainous Douglas Island.

Welcome to Juneau’s all-time peak experience! You’ll navigate along a series of five ziplines and a suspension bridge, never leaving the treetops! If you’re nervous, you can build your confidence on 2 practice zips. And since there’s no hand-braking required, you can just sit and zip on this adventure through the rainforest canopy.

You’ll start out in the heart of the Tongass National Forest at Eaglecrest Ski Area in Juneau.

After a narrated drive to Douglas Island you’ll be surrounded with mountain views and pristine old growth forest. Once you’ve arrived at the lodge, you’ll be greeted by friendly and knowledgeable guides who will outfit you with top of the line gear. We take fun seriously, so you’ll have a safety briefing and optional practice zips before taking your “leap of faith” into the trees.

As you make your way through 5 ziplines, with the longest zip being about 600 feet long, you and your guide will stop and land in fully enclosed treehouse platforms where you can take in the scenery or snap some pictures.  Hear about living in Southeast Alaska  and the forest flora and fauna you’re seeing. Close to the end of your trip, you’ll cross a suspension bridge over a rushing stream. Top off your tour by embracing your inner lumberjack and try your hand at Axe Throwing.

Back at the lodge you’ll have time to watch a slideshow of the pictures your guide has taken of you during your adventure. There’s a gift shop where you can purchase your pictures and other mementos of your time in the trees.

Please Note: Guests should be comfortable with heights and walking up about 50 stairs. This tour is not recommended for people who are pregnant, have seizures or recent neck, shoulder or back injuries/surgery.

No hand-braking is required on this course, so you can sit and zip while your guides handle all the equipment and keep you safe. The guides will also be on hand to enhance your sense of adventure and fun!

We three seniors had a BLAST!

Yep, this was a Bucket List adventure for us. Our group was met at the pier (Princess) and driven to Eaglecrest, about 25 minutes away. (Bonus views of Juneau from Douglas Is, and saw some rural areas on the ride.) Jake and Sarah were warm and welcoming, helped us into our gear, answered our questions and joked around to calm our nerves. We took our cell phones and go-pro along, while our other personal items were safely stored at the lodge. These two friendly, fit and fun guides were careful and professional, encouraging and empathetic. It IS scary to make that first step off the platform!!! By the last one, we wanted to start all over again. As in other situations where team trust is built, we were soon cheering each other on and celebrating our achievements. Jake and Sarah truly enjoy their jobs and they wanted us to enjoy our zipline adventure. We sure did. Thanks for the memories!!

Don’t miss this one

I love zip lining, and this course was one of the best I’ve been on. It was the first one I’ve seen use two lines instead of one for extra safety, which is awesome, but due to this also took a little extra concentration for the hand brake. Most of our group were first-timers, and they caught on with no problem.

Chris and Anthony were super fun and the whole group was upbeat and exciting. The conversation flowed easily and the guides knew lots of details about the surrounding foliage and scenery. The views were breathtaking and the zips were nice and long so you could take it all in before stopping. We hadn’t seen a bear the whole time in Alaska, so it was amazing to zip over the top of one and get to see it in the wild! A fantastic experience I’d recommend to anyone!

Considerate hosts

This was a bucket list item for me on my 65th birthday.. My legs are weak. Yet, the staff was very considerate when I would "land." There was nothing condescending or anything that would make a spectacle out of me. And... I had a blast. They made sure that EVERYONE had a great time. One is so harnessed up, that it's not scary at all. Just do it!
