Ready for a tree top challenge?! This adventure is a memorable zipline experience.

Plan to fly through the Ketchikan rainforest on this tree top zipline adventure. This course is designed for people who are looking for an adrenaline rush, love ziplining, or want to step up to new challenges like skybridge suspension bridges and rappelling.

Live the thrill of gliding through a rich rainforest before breaking out into the canopy overlooking Herring Cove. This tour takes you through a series of eight zip-lines and one aerial bridge suspended between tall spruce and hemlock trees following the border of the magnificent Tongass National Forest. This major rain forest reserve embraces one of Alaska’s richest salmon spawning streams and a pristine intertidal estuary. Abundant wildlife habitat here includes a high concentration of bald eagles, black bears, and a variety of other species.  

At Herring Cove, an all-terrain custom 4×4 Unimog will transport you up a steep rain forest hillside to the canopy chalet. Professionally trained guides will outfit you with the state-of-the-art safety equipment and provide a detailed orientation before you mount the first platform. Your rain forest canopy challenge features a ‘flight’ over eight zip-lines. Your guide will progressively ease you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 100 feet up to 600 feet with platform as high as 100 feet above the ground. Eagles and bears are often seen from the platforms. Cross a hanging bridge that will lead you to our longest zip that breaks out into the canopy offering breathtaking views of the forest and salmon spawning creek below. Throughout this adventure, you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the rain forest wildlife preserve. The final zip-line emerges from the rainforest and transports you over lush grassy wetlands to a viewing tower overlooking the Whitman Lake Fish Hatchery, 55 feet above the ground where you will rappel to the ground. 

Time permitting, grab a freshly brewed coffee or a cold Alaskan beer and explore our Tsimshian totem park, see a master carver working, check out our historic sawmill and watch our local blacksmiths at work. Stop by the General Store to see photos taken during your zip-line experience and to shop for mementos of your Alaska adventure. Your excursion concludes with a scenic drive back to the ship.

I took the rainforest zip, skybridge, and rappel adventure through Norwegian on 10/8/22. The tour was amazing! The guides assigned to my group, Loki and Tristan, were fantastic. They made the tour so much more entertaining with their jokes and facts along the way. This tour had a good variety of zip lines and skybridges. The rappel was a nice added plus at the end. The entire time I felt safe and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for something a bit more exciting.

We had a great day despite all of the rain. There was a bit of a mishap, but they handled it quickly and went above and beyond our expectations. We can't say enough great things about Sean and Josie who were our guides on the zipline. And on the rainforest tour all of the knowledge that Ben gave was simply amazing. Thanks to everyone involved for helping to make sure that our adventure was absoutely wonderful!

The Zipline experience in the rainforest was so much fun. The staff was very kind, cooperative, helpful, funny and encouraging. Even though it was raining and trees were swaying, we didn't feel scared. Our guide Mickey was super cool and fun. Thanks to all of you for making this experience...

Exceptional staff and excellent Rainforest Ziplining experience in Ketchikan Alaska. Definitely would recommend! Raiden, Cassie, and Cory were sensational guides and made the adventure fantastic. Seven ziplines and two rappels could have done it all day. Also our bus drivers Lucy and Madison were so knowledgeable about the area and traditions. They made the drive to and from the tour entertaining with all the information and stories they shared.
