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 for a light snack while watching 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!

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

Outstanding

Visited while on a cruise this past summer. Never got around to posting this review until November because I miss placed the business card. Our guide Shannon was absolutely outstanding. Such a friendly and overly animated young girl. She really made the tour. I spoke to her supervisor to pay her a compliment. If she's still there when you visit make sure you ask for Shanon. Very knowledgeable on all of the local wildlife.

Great time, worth it!

Me and my friend live here and My family came to visit. Ages: (2) 19 years old, 21, 52, and 68! We all had a blast. They picked us up by the Ketchikan sign and the lady was very helpful getting us in the van and getting to the place. Our tour guides Ivan and Cameron were so great and put up with us the whole time. They definitely knew what they were doing. Almost took Cameron down with my clumsy self on the free fall and he handled it like a champ. Would recommend to anyone visiting. I'm a seasonal work and really enjoyed it. Saw bears, deers, and eagles. The views were awesome and the zip lines were long and worth it!
