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!

We saw a momma bear and her cub below us!
This is great fun! Not hard and even though I am not a fan of heights or speed I enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Collin and Kelly kept us (a family of 6) in the know and ready to go. We all loved it. Don't miss it!
First time zipliner
Went ziplining for the first time in Juneau with this great tour company and had amazing guides, Zach & Matt. It was terrifying, and I'm pretty sure one or both guides are a little bruised from my death grip, but it was a wonderful adventure and I was an old pro by the 4th run lol! Guides were fun and reassuring, and our entire group had a great experience. Thanks for your patience guys!
From the beginning - boarding the bus from the dock to the mountain ~ till the end - sadly leaving, back at the cruise - this was a spectacular experience! The people involved in organizing, planning and carrying out the “adventure”, although seemingly very young, are extremely competent. While being appropriately fun and funny, they’re focused in checking and double checking every possible safety detail. Thank you Quinn and Salix! You were absolutely great and are forever part of great memories!
