Glide Above the Juneau Treetops!

Alaska's Ultimate Canopy and Zip Line Expedition is an eco-adventure that features the thrill of gliding above the treetops in a rich rainforest on over 6,000 feet of dual zip lines, suspension bridges, and a ground-based trail network. Also included on this Juneau shore excursion are a channel crossing aboard an expedition craft, a mountain ascent on an off-road vehicle, and an aerial exploration of hidden relics of a world-famous gold mine.

After meeting your guide on the pier, you and your group of no more than 18 guests will board a high-speed vessel for a roughly 15-minute Gastineau Channel crossing, passing Mayflower Island and Suicide Falls, with a beach landing at the remote Treadwell Mine site on Douglas Island and direct access to the forest outfitting base camp.

Your professionally trained guides will outfit you with state-of-the-art safety equipment and provide a detailed safety briefing before transporting you in a 4 x 4 all-terrain vehicle up the densely forested hillside to the first Zip Line tree platform. This is your introduction to nearly one mile of dual high-tension cables linking a network of platforms mounted high in carefully selected old growth spruce trees.

Your guides will progressively ease you into the forest canopy along ten Zip Lines. Cross two aerial suspension bridges, with breathtaking views of spectacular Bullion Creek, and enjoy unique views of Juneau from the treetops. Discover hidden ruins of the historic Treadwell Mine (1881-1917), once one of the world's largest gold mines, and zip over a 180-foot deep hole. Looking from above, see the ruins of the original mine refinery, where millions of dollars of molten gold was poured into ingot molds. The longest zip is approximately 800 feet.

During your approximately 80-90 minutes on the zip course, you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of Alaska's rainforest throughout this award-winning, nature-based adventure. The last Zip Line takes you to a final platform to experience the thrill of rappelling into base camp, where you will receive a light snack and be presented with a custom-cast Alaska Canopy Adventures medal in recognition of your achievement. An informative narration is provided on the channel crossing.

Please note: Tour operates in all types of weather, within safety guidelines.

This was a 'bucket-list' jaunt and of all the zip-line possibilities at the various ports of call was by far the best. The guides/instructors were skilled, professional and entertaining. The zip-line trips were thrilling but at no time overly daunting. This I would do over and over again. And this from a senior citizen!
