Alaskan sized adventure! This is it, the world's largest zip-line: 5,330 feet long, 1,300 foot vertical drop, 60 mph maximum speed, 300 feet highest point from ground, 1.5 minute ride time! If you are looking for true adventure then the ZipRider is for you. Unlike anything you've seen before the ZipRider cable ride at Icy Strait Point is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Your adventure begins when you board your bus for the ride to the top the mountain. Your driver will narrate as you pass through the village of Hoonah and then up the mountainside. Once on top you will take a short walk to the launching area. At 1,300 feet above sea level you will sit into a special harness seat and await your launch. Six guests launch at once, and it is a race to the bottom! 3, 2, 1 and you're off, accelerating to 60 mph as you pass 300 feet above the treetops. If your eyes are still open you will see sweeping views of Port Frederick, Icy Strait and your cruise ship far below. Your ZipRide concludes with a break-activated landing on the beach back at Icy Strait Point.Participants must be between 90 and 275 pounds and be comfortable with heights. This ride is not recommended for individuals with back or neck problems, or who are pregnant. Photos will be available at the end of your ride!

Booking through your cruise line or direct is the same price. This is a very safe excursion but not for people that are unable to walk down steep hills. The ride up in a bus takes 45 minutes however there is a very steep walk...More

We arrived on the Norwegian Sun. It was a beautiful day, with whales frolicking in the bay. A knowledgeable local welcomed us aboard his bus and drove us to the top of the zipline. At the top there was still some snow on the ground...More

We really enjoyed the narrated drive to the top, which passes through Hoonah. It was all friendly and very well organised. The zip ride down was fun, with wonderful views. But both my partner and I were twisted around by the wind, so we went...More

Serious zip line fans have to do this. Not cheap. Not for the faint hearted. A drive to three top and 90 seconds for adrenaline rush.

They provide goggles to wear over your glasses. The goggles protect the eyes from the wind and the rain. It is alaska after all.
