Alaska's Ultimate Canopy & Zipline Expedition
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 is an ascending drive through the scenic Tongass National Forest.
You'll be outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment and given a safety briefing. Your guide will be there every step of the way to assist you on this exciting adventure. Our tours never exceed a 1:6 guide-to-guest ratio, so you'll receive plenty of attention along the way! As you walk up the scenic staircase, you'll come to the first platform. Once you're clipped into the double cable zipline, you'll glide away from the forest floor and instantly transition from a bear's eye view to a bird's eye view.
During the tour, you'll view the alpine forest and unique flora and fauna from a VERY unique perspective. You can also enjoy the views from our new aerial suspension bridge! With handrails, and being clipped in from above, you'll safely traverse the bridge. Along your journey, you will cross many brooks and meandering streams. The area provides a scenery of old growth trees that are upwards of 400 years old. Get familiar with the sitka spruce and western hemlock trees. If you are fortunate, you may even view local wildlife.
On the final platform, you will land in our new, uniquely designed tree-house. After a guided, interpretive walk back to the lodge, you can purchase a locally brewed beer or fresh lemonade to sip while you watch the video presentation from your tour. You will have an opportunity to purchase additional snacks, beverages, t-shirts, and many other gifts. You may even want to purchase "proof" of your adventure--your own personal photos!
You will have the opportunity to learn about the fascinating eco-systems of southeast Alaska through photographs and narrative. This tour is the perfect choice for a misty day because we provide rain gear, and you will have shelter throughout the rainforest canopy. Also, following the zipline tour, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at Axe Throwing and embrace your inner lumberjack! Safety gear and instructions will be provided by their guides for a fun and exciting outdoor challenge.
Please note: Tour operates in all types of weather, within safety guidelines.

I have done some great stuff while traveling but this so far is the best. The staff and the experience is unparalleled. Our guides Adam and Caitlyn(sp) were so fantastic, patient and knowledgeable. When I do this again I want them to work with me.

Wife and I, ages 59&60, took this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly through the Alaskan wilderness hanging by a harness. Wow! Lived it. The thrill of these five ziplines through the woods, over small rivers and deep valleys, was made even better by the attitudes of our guides, Jake and Isaac. They were great. Some of our best pictures and video are of this adventure. As first time zipliners we were pleasantly surprised at the reduntancy of safety features. Always attached to something we never had the opportunity to fall. Loved every minute of it. What a great memory.

Our family of four - two teenagers, and two forty-year olds joined a group of 8 others to zip through the rain forest. The zip line course is part of a ski resort, and at one of the trees we were served blueberry tea. The guides made us all feel safe and comfortable. The guides did the breaking on our zip lines and not one of us came flying in too fast. One of the women on our tour (a 70 year old) was a bit nervous ziplining for the first time, but as we passed over line by line she grew to enjoy it more. One of the zip line towers sat at 100 feet up! One passed over a gently flowing stream. It was a beautiful setting, felt very safe, and the guides were pleasant and knowledgeable. My husband accidentally left his good camera at the facility and the group mailed it back to us at home (in the lower 48) at no charge to us. We are grateful for this highly respectable group of people!
Jon and Brad were excellent guides for our first zip line adventure. They were both very funny during the tour. My wife was a little nervous at first but they really put her at ease. We felt safe and comfortable during the whole trip. Would highly recommend any thinking of zip lining to definitely considering going with Alaska's Ultimate Canopy and Zipline.
