Rainforest Zipline and Skybridge Adventure
Fly through the Ketchikan rain forest on this tree top zipline adventure. This course is designed for people who are looking for an adrenaline rush, love ziplining, or want to step up to new challenges like skybridge suspension bridges and rappelling.
Imagine yourself gliding through the top of a rich rainforest canopy along a series of eight cable zip lines. You’ll be zipping along the border of the magnificent Tongass National Forest, navigating three aerial bridges suspended among spruce, hemlock and cedar trees.
You'll begin with an eight-mile narrated coastal drive to Herring Cove, where an all-terrain custom 4×4 Unimog will pick you up and transport you up a steep rainforest hillside to the canopy chalet.
Your professionally trained guide will outfit you with sophisticated safety equipment and give you a detailed orientation prior to zipping from the first platform.
Your zipline adventure features a flight over eight ziplines and three suspension bridge, looking out on beautiful nature trails. Your guides will progressively ease you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 100 foot to the 750 foot pulse pounding “Ben’s Revenge”.
The final zipline emerges from the rainforest and transports you over lush grassy wetlands to a viewing tower, 55 feet above ground. Here you’ll rappel to the ground and gear-down at the base camp. Stop by the General Store, where you can see the pictures taken during your zipline experience and head off full of awesome memories.
