Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this adventure is sure to excite nature lovers and thrill seekers alike! Get a running start on solid ground and take flight into the treetops of the Alaskan rainforest, and over glacially fed waterfalls!The fun begins with an entertaining historic tour through downtown Skagway, then along 9 miles of stunning coastline. When you arrive at our base in Dyea, you will climb into our customized unimog—an all-wheel drive vehicle necessary for getting up our rugged mountain road. During your adventurous ride up the mountain, look out at the impressive rainforest and glacially fed waterfalls. Get psyched—you’re about to fly over this wild landscape!At the top of the mountain, you will suit up in gear that meets the most rigorous standards of safety while your highly trained guide tells you what to expect and how to safely navigate the course. You will then be led to the take-off zone, where you’ll be clipped in and fly away! You’ll soar through a course of 11 ziplines, the longest measuring 750ft—that’s longer than 2 football fields combined! This is more than just any zip course, though. Our lines will bring you directly above glacially fed waterfalls! For the more cautious adventurers, rest assured that you can always control your own speed with a brake system—but we “double-dog” dare you to let go and zoom up to 45 miles per hour! Of course, that’s a little too fast to take those perfect pictures of the Alaskan wilderness. That’s why we added 4 state of the art suspension bridges to our course. From these bridges, you’ll be able to capture stunning photos of you and your loved ones in the heart of Alaska’s wild beauty. This is bound to be an “E.X.C.U.R.S.I.O.N. of a lifetime,” one you will surely remember for years to come!

If you're looking for adventure look no further. This was such an amazing activity. The location is remote but on your way there you will get a chance to see all sorts of wildlife (eagles, seals, bears, etc) and learn some of the history of the area. Once you're there and geared up get ready for an adrenaline rush. The... More

Given that my only other ziplining experience was in Costa Rica, the instruction and gear that I received was much…safer. All that I had to do was relax and have fun, which was great! Throughout the few hours we were on the mountain, we ziplined across both upper and lower Grizzly Falls. We joked, laughed, made friends with our companions... More

This was a really great excursion! Honestly, I wasn't really looking that forward to it. It was more for my husband, since I have been zip lining over a dozen times. I am just starting to get bored with it. However, the experience here was amazing and I am so happy we went with this company!! It isn't the longest... More

Skagway was a stop on our Alaskan cruise with Norwegian. The van driver gave us a brief tour/history of the city on our way to the site. Ziplining was on my bucket list, but I was afraid to do it.

Our ziplining trip was so much fun. Our guides were Elliot and Dusty. They were really fun to be with. Very personable, friendly, helpful, and patient. You could tell they really enjoyed doing this.
