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!

Ziplining through the treetops

This was such an amazing adventure. Never felt afraid, because our amazing guides were very experienced in what they were doing. Wonderful time with Shalix and Anya....I'd do it again!

Awesome time ever !!!

Our guides were Alexa and Brad. 10 out of 10. Alexa had so many stories we never felt like we were waiting. She got our daughter over her fear of going backwards (slight scream). And my wife learnt you can’t Superman backwards. More stories for Alexa’s storybook. Had a blast.

Great Fun and way to begin our Alaska adventure

We were assigned to Ben and McKenzie (forgive me if spelling is wrong) and my wife was a bit apprehensive.
Well, we both had a terrific time and were impressed with the total professionalism from beginning to end People of all ages were able to thoroughly participate and enjoy the experience.
Even saw a bear in the far distance...but just zip-lining in the trees was exciting enough.
Ready to roll with Tarzan and Jane
