Why choose Kawanti Adventures?

We are the originator of zipline canopy tours in Alaska. It all began with us, and we do it best! Our courses are the largest in Alaska—the longest ziplines, breathtaking sky bridges, rappelling, rugged 4×4 mountain ascents, and much more. We’ll show you Alaska’s rainforest as few get to experience it!
