Ziptrek Ecotours Questions & Answers

Elk

How much vertical walking is there on the Bear Zip? I've done other ziplines which start at the highest elevation line and then each line connects from there- platform to platform. Is this zipline set up like that or is there treks to the next line? Thanks

Hi Bette,

Lots of good answers & insight here, provided by former Ziptrek guests.

Just to clarify a few points, and avoid any possible confusion. Our Eagle tour starts with a gondola ride out of the village (and has some of our longer & steeper ziplines). The Bear tour, our original tour, and the one you inquired about, starts with a van ride out of the village, delivering guests to our course.

Our ziplines are not inter-connected to the degree that each successive zipline departs from the same deck / platform that you land on from a previous zip. There is a some walking in between each zip - which is made up of some ground based trail, suspension bridges, viewing decks, and some stairs. All of it broken up in relatively small segments, which take place over the entire tour (2.5 hours). Best described (by most) as fairly casual, at an easy-going pace vs anything too strenuous. All told, it adds up to about 500 metres (1/2 km), divided up in small segments, which take place between each zip, over the course of the entire tour (ie. not all at once).

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I didn't see your question pop up until now.

Yes there's a bit of walking between the zip lines but nothing serious. If you're not particularly fit then you might have to work a bit. When we did it there was snow everywhere and this made it awesome. Had a bit of fun between runs.

Hi it is not letting me answer..their first tour is easier, but a van ride and a little more walking, second one is longer zip at first, but less walking, however, if you have never zipped before, that first one on the harder tour is longer..not scary at all though! I was scared and then it was perfect!

There is a small amount of walking between each zip line. One was a little steep on the ascent .... but otherwise it's easy enough for a nine year old in the snow!! The guides were really great and very helpful so I'm sure you could send an email explaining any requirements and see what they recommend! Hope you see a bear or even a Cougar (the one that lives in the trail! Lol... I'm sure you will be told the story!)✅

Hi Bette, You take the gondola to the start of the zip line. We were lucky enough to see bears on the way up!! The zip line is fantastic. Not too much walking. The scenery is breathtaking & the lines are fast & so much fun. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Bette, They take u up one of the gondolas first then you walk a short distance there is a little bit of vertical walking in parts but it's not a trek . Half way though you climb stairs and a rope bridge that elevates you again through the trees. I'm in my 50's it was easy all the way through it's a fabulous experience right in the village ! We wish we had time to do it twice ! Enjoy

Cheers Lynda
