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!

My husband & I were on our honeymoon when we did this adventure. I'm terrified by heights so this was crazy. But our guides, Stef & Megan, were great. Coaching me the entire way. They were a lot of fun with great sense of humor. Made it very relaxed & ENJOYABLE!!!! The very end of the "ride" we were lucky enough to see a black bear walking the grounds. They didn't panic just call the main lodge, the bear left without any encouraging. That made the repel down very memorable. Great trip, great guides, would highly recommend this company. When we go back to Alaska, we will be doing this again.
Awesome and then some!
Outstanding! Our guides, Adam and Ivan, were fun, funny, and personable. Everyone in the group was awesome, but then who wouldn't be on a zipline excursion?

My husband and I are both over 60 and this was our first experience with zip lining. Trystan and Tatiana made us feel completely comfortable and were amazing hosts. We would highly recommend this for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and enthusiasm.
