Excursion Overview

Fast, fun, and exhilarating ziplining adventure is waiting for nature lovers and thrill seekers!!

Get a running start on solid ground and take flight into the treetops of the Alaskan rainforest! It all starts at your cruise dock when you meet up with your guide. From there, enjoy an entertaining historic tour through downtown Skagway then along 9 miles of stunning coastline.

When you arrive at our base in Dyea, you will transfer into our customized Unimog - an all-wheel-drive vehicle necessary for getting up our rugged mountain road. During your adventurous ride up the mountain, look out at the impressive rainforest and glacially-fed waterfalls. Get psyched - you're about to fly over this wild landscape! At the top of the mountain, you will suit up in gear that meets the highest standards of safety while your highly trained guide tells you what to expect and how to safely navigate the course.

You will then be lead to the take-off zone, where you'll clip in and fly away! You'll soar through a course of 10 ziplines. But this is more than just any zipline course. Our lines will bring you directly above glacially fed waterfalls, so close you will actually feel the mist as you zoom by! For the more cautious adventurers, rest assured that you can always control your own speed with a brake system. But we double dog dare you to let go and zoom up to 45 miles per hour!

Of course, that's a little too fast to take those perfect pictures of the Alaskan wilderness. That's why we decided that a hardcore Unimog and a 10 line zip course over waterfalls just isn't quite enough. So we added 4 state-of-the-art suspension bridges. From these bridges, you'll be able to capture stunning photos of you and your loved ones in the heart of Alaska's wild beauty.

After completing the course, pat yourself on the back, say goodbye to your guides, and enjoy your last ride in the Unimog to your bus at the bottom of the mountain. Take advantage of the scenic drive back to Skagway to look over your pictures and joke about who was the bravest zipliner. This is bound to be an "E.X.C.U.R.S.I.O.N of a lifetime", one you will surely remember for years to come!

This was amazing! First off, alaskashoreexcursions.com was the cheapest company to book through and had fantastic communication! The zipline tour was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. David our driver was super knowledgeable and friendly and our zipline guides Justin and Karris were a blast and even taught us tricks which made the experience so unique! There is no more picturesque place to zipline than being surrounded by rainforest and waterfalls either. This was our favorite part of our Alaska cruise!

Our guides Yeti & Skeeter (Kyle) were beyond fantastic. They made us feel comfortable & confident. I would recommend this hands down to anyone looking for adventure & outdoorsy fun!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!

We had an amazing time. The zip-lining was fun. It wasn't as daring or a high as I would have expected, but for the most part and taking into account that my children got to go on them, it was great. The view is astonishing.

The Grizzly Falls Zipline Adventure was a great time. Our guides did a great job, the coarse is very safe as you are always connected through the whole coarse including crossing suspension bridges. Views on the coarse are beautiful as you go through trees and waterfalls!
