Zipline tours are a thrilling way to experience Alaska’s rainforest, mountains, and wildlife. Offering high speeds and stunning views, they’re a great option for adventurous couples, families, and tour groups.

On your zipline tour, you’ll soar along multiple ziplines and venture across suspension bridges, taking in jaw-dropping views of Alaska’s rainforest and mountains as you go. Lucky travelers may even spot some wildlife along the way.

Things to Know Before You Book:

  • Most zipline tours pick-up passengers near the cruise ship docks, so you don’t have to worry about transportation. Tours usually last a few hours.
  • There are age, weight, and height restrictions specific to each tour, so be sure to read the details.
  • Zipline tours make safety a priority, so rest assured that you’ll be in good hands.

Packing for Your Zipline Tour:

  • Dress in layers, so you’re ready for whatever weather the day brings.
  • If you’re going to bring a camera, be sure to have secure neck and wrist straps. (Some tours may restrict larger cameras on the ziplines.)
  • You’ll be able to store purses and other belongings while you’re ziplining. (Note that space is limited, so don’t bring too much stuff.)
