Juneau Alpine Zipline Adventure | Same Day

Excursion Overview

Zipline through the trees of the Tongass National Forest!

Of all of the amazing ways to experience the rainforest, one of the most exciting is to fly through the trees on an Alaska zipline tour! The Tongass National Rainforest offers breathtaking views and with this Juneau excursion, you'll be able to take them in from the treetops!

The excursion begins with a drive up to the Eaglecrest Ski Area, on Douglas Island, which doubles as a zipline course in the summer months. Your driver will provide history and commentary on the way from downtown all the way up to the zipline base and summer ski lodge. There, you will be met by our friendly staff, who will outfit you with all the necessary gear and provide your safety briefings. You'll start with a practice run to make sure you are comfortable before heading out on this Juneau Alpine zipline course.

Each zipline will land you in a treehouse platform, where you will have time to capture the best moments and scenery with your camera. Indulge in delicious blueberry tea while your guide tells you all about what you are seeing, provides you with history and stories, and answers any questions you may have about the area. The ziplines are only one of the many fun adventures on this excursion.

Toward the end of the trip, your group will traverse over a suspension bridge while looking down at a salmon spawning stream. Then, get your inner lumberjack ready, because you'll have the chance to try your hand at ax-throwing! This activity is suitable and available to both children and adults.

At the end of the excursion, you will have more time to relax at the ski lodge with a snack and a slideshow of all the photos from the day. Local beer and souvenirs are available for purchase in the shop. This tour is a memory-maker for those of all ages!
