Skagway Grizzly Falls Ziplining Adventure


Fast, fun, and exhilarating, the Grizzly Falls ziplining adventure is sure to excite nature lovers and thrill seekers alike! 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!

Oct 2019 - L. Martin M.

Staff were very good and very patient. I felt that safety of guests were priority one. Lost one star as I would have liked longer zip lines.

Sep 2019 - Dennis G.

A unique and enjoyable experience! From shuttle driver Axel's informative narration on the drive, to Unimog driver Ben's navigation up the mountain, to guides Jared and Courtney - everyone was fabulous! Jared and Courtney helped those in our group who were a bit nervous, and taught tricks to the more adventurous in the group. An amazing experience in the Alaskan rainforest!

Sep 2019 - Michelle R.

This was my first time ziplining and I am hooked! The guides were AWESOME! The scenery was AMAZING! From start to finish this excursion over-delivered. Forget about everything else in Skagway this is the excursion to do! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Sep 2019 - Laura P.

Fabulous...we are a couple in our late 60 s! Felt safe and had a wonderful time. Highly recommend this adventure.

Sep 2019 - CIELO G.

Ziplining Grizzly Falls is a must do excursion in Skagway Alaska. The rainforest and waterfall was breathtaking. Staffs are very friendly, professional, and accommodating. Definitely coming back.. Thank you and Zip-On!!!

Sep 2019 - Kristine M.

So Fun!! Our guides were excellent! The ride up the mountain was fun too. Our bus ride to the ziplining headquarters was even great, we were given a little tour through Skagway with commentary. My kids, 8, 11, and 14 enjoyed it the most. Thanks for a great experience in Skagway!! -Martin family (Redding, CA)

Sep 2019 - Phyllis W.

This was one of the highlights of our ten days in Alaska. Alaska Shore excursions made booking easy and provided all needed instructions necessary. We were picked up at our port and transported to Grizzly Falls . Our driver was safe, courteous, and welcoming. The ride to the top of the mountain was an adventure in itself. Our zip lining group had 5 adults, 4 who had never zipped. There are so many safety features utilized, that you can relax and enjoy the moment. Kameron and Amy went above and beyond to make us feel safe and enjoy the moment at each platform. They talked us through each zip line and demonstrated different ways to enjoy the zipping. The forest and falls are breathtaking as you zip through this environment. You begin on short ,simple zips and move through the others. My husband (78) and myself (76) had a delightful experience. One we can now cross off our bucket list. If you are going to zip line in Alaska, this is the one to choose. The setting is breathtaking, the people working a Grizzly Falls make you feel welcome and safe!

Aug 2019 - Lawrence D.

Super fun, the guides were terrific and really accommodating. We had a small family group of 6 and the guides went over and above for making us welcome.

Aug 2019 - John H.

The crew was fun and made me feel safe. I would highly recommend this excursion!

Aug 2019 - Ian C.

This was one of the highlights of our Alaskan Cruise. The employees were polite, funny, happy to be there, and helped make this an awesome zip-lining adventure. Our family consists of myself (47 yo man), my wife (50 yo woman), and our 2 daughters (a 27 yo and a 14 yo). We were really impressed with the quantity and quality of the lines. I would definitely recommend the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Adventure to anyone seeking a fun Alaskan shore excursion.

Aug 2019 - Katy L.

Loved this excursion! Awesome scenery, great guides. Highly recommend!

Aug 2019 - Ivan L.

So much fun! The guides helped us feel safe at all times and made it more fun than just sliding down a cable. My kids said it was more fun than a day at Disneyland! We got to a point we could do flips, spins, and go upsidedown! So much fun!

Amazing for people of all ages! The scenery is beautiful, safety was a top priority, and the adventure was loved by kids and adults!

Jul 2019 - Nicole B.

This excursion far exceeded our expectations. We just got back from our Alaskan cruise in July 2019 and we did the Skagway Grizzly Falls Ziplining Adventure. We enjoyed the bus ride through town and heard lots of fun information about Skagway. We loved the views as we drove and found it very relaxing. Once we got to the "base camp" we were very impressed with all the employees we interacted with. What we liked most is that they took our group of 5 and started us separate from other groups. They seemed to make small groups to keep things moving and fun. Each group had 2 employees with them. We loved the variety of ziplines and the kids loved that they were taught different "tricks" on each line. We loved going upside down, free falling, doing a slip, helicopter, and more. Overall, it was worth the money and time and we had a wonderful experience. I also loved that I was able to book this independent from the ship and that kept it more affordable.

Jul 2019 - Gregory M.

Good fun

Jul 2019 - Erin M.

This was the BEST place to go ziplining! When we got back to our cruise ship we spoke with many others who were jealous of how many ziplines we were able to do and the tricks we were taught to do! All the staff was amazing starting from transport all the way through and the scenery is amazing! This excursion is definitely worth it!

Jul 2019 - Katherin Q.

My husband, 2 kids ( 11 & 14 ) & I all had a blast on the zip lining tour. Everything was super easy and smooth from booking it to experiencing it that day

Jun 2019 - Cyndi C.

So much fun and a great experience for my 9 year old. Thanks for the adventure!!

Jun 2019 - Debra M.

This was great fun! They were very professional and attentive. Zip lining over grizzly falls was beautiful. I would highly recommend the excursion.

May 2019 - Chris P.

Highly recommended! So much fun! This was the most beautiful property and the excursion did not disappoint. Our guides, Mel and Blake, were hilarious and really added to the already incredible experience. The whole operation is very professional and well maintained. The shuttle to and from the excursion was also awesome. The road to Dyea is beautiful and our driver was very knowledgeable. This is a "must do!" if you want to have fun and soar through the forest in Skagway.

May 2019 - Susana S.

First time going zip lining and our guides made it an experience to remember. Had a blast.

May 2019 - Jaclyn K.

Exhilarating experience. Big thank you to Finn and Gavin for maximizing our experience.

May 2019 - Patrick W.

Wow! This was an amazing experience as this was my first time ziplining. We were greeted promptly at the dock in Skagway and shuttled to the zipline location in Dyea. Along the way, there was plenty of wildlife to see, including numerous bald eagles. There was a total of 4 in our group and we were teamed up with Finn and Mel. They were awesome and made this a fun and memorable experience. I would definitely do this excursion again!

May 2019 - Leslie P.

Awesome. We had excellent guides Christian and Blake. Whale joke was great! Thanks

May 2019 - Melissa C.

Staff was awesome funny and knew what they were doing.

Sep 2018 - LI T.

This is our first time to experience the ziplining and it was the best and the most exciting excursion for our whole trip! The tour driver Chris is very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about Skagway. The Ziplining instructors Jenny and Brooks are so friendly and helpful and funny. We had a full 3.5 hours of happy time in and out of the beautiful wood in Skagway. Will do ziplining again if get a chance. Recommend this event to everyone.

Sep 2018 - Jennifer D.

Had a great time ziplining with this bunch - were prepared for all types of people. Some people just wanted to go down the zip, but for those who wanted more excitement, they offered lots of ideas - a trust fall, a running leap, even a flip! And they were very encouraging - even my daughter who is scared to death of heights (she wanted to come to face her fear) was smiling after the first zip.

Sep 2018 - Dianna P.

What a great time. I took my son who doesn't like heights and the guides helped him tremendously with the various "lines" At the end, he was very comfortable and having a great time. Thanks so much for the great team you have. Would do again in a heartbeat.

Sep 2018 - Arletta H.

Aug 2018 - Carmen J.

Very fun excursion! Lots of fun in a beautiful area. Guides showed us lots of fun "tricks" and we got a lot of beautiful scenery and cool information. We would highly recommend this zip lining tour - it was our favorite!

Great excursion and from pick up in the Van to drop off in town. Everyone we came in contact with were super friendly, efficient and respectful. Good Job!

Jul 2018 - Heather A.

Kelsey friendly, picked us up on time, and made the ride quite enjoyable. Mel (AKA Heather inside joke;) and Hanna were a freaking BLAST! Believe it or not, I'm not one to be hanging upside down or doing cannon balls from a zip line tower, yet I was so comfortable I DID! Of all the amazing things we did and saw in Alaska, your amazing team definitely made this excursion the highlight of our 7 day trip. The Falls were pretty too, but so was Caleb's pic of himself on our camera, lol! Thank you all for a memory we'll cherish for a lifetime! Sincerely, Heather (AKA Mel) and Eric Anderson

Jun 2018 - Kara N.

Aug 2017 - Jasmine A.

Will and Hana were awesome guides and Jeremy the driver was lovely! The whole experience was great from start to finish. We booked without our cruise ship and saved money to do the same trip they paid for with DCL. Would do this again in a heart beat. We had 7- 54 year olds and everyone loved it and was able to do it no matter the fear or comfort level. The place was very safe and you knew you were in good hands.

Aug 2017 - Theresa H.

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids and this excursion was one of our Alaskan trip highlights!!

The facility is extremely well kept, and the staff were downright amazing!! We had such a great time!!

Jul 2017 - Peter W.

Everyone loved it! If you're going to zipline in Alaska, this is a great tour. We wanted adventure in Skagway and this was a great way to see the area and have a great day in the forest.

Jul 2017 - Melinda G.

An exceptional experience for three generations of our family. There was nothing better than watching my 6 and 9 year old daughter's zip line alongside my mother! Our guides, Emily and Liz, were fantastic. I highly recommend this excursion.

Jul 2017 - Christeen B.

Our guides were wonderful. Instructions and attentiveness spot on. Guides were great with kids and adults. Fun time for all ages.

Jul 2017 - Sandra G.

We are first time zip liners and we had a blast! I was apprehensive about this excursion since I do not do well with heights, but I think I have conquered that fear! Our guides were amazing and knew our levels of apprehension - thank you to Cassidy and Sebina for being so patient and fun!. We were grouped with another family of 4 and were encouraged to push our limits. It didn't take long for us to really enjoy it. If you want to learn to do flips and spins, the guides are amazing and walk you step by step how to do this. We look forward to ziplining again!

Jul 2017 - Roxanna M.

Kids had a great time even those the second time around!!!!! Thank u

Jun 2017 - Bradley L.

We had a great time zip lining! Our guides were extremely helpful and made our experience so much fun!

Mar 2017 - Dustan H.

This excursion is a blast! Our guides, BK and Cassidy, were a lot fun and kept everybody energized. We started with the unimog (a big bus-like truck) ride up the mountain and then zipline down. The first line is called Running Man because you literally run off the side of the mountain and zip down to the next tower. For each line, the guides gave us a challenge (hang upside down, no hands, do your favorite dance move, etc). That made it even more fun! We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny day. Overall, this was a great excursion, and we would encourage everyone to try it. You won't regret it!

Sep 2016 - Elle B.

Great time even in the rain!

Aug 2016 - Sandra K.

Great adventure. Staff were very safety conscious, which was paramount. Lindsay & Elliott were excellent instructors and explained as many times as we needed. Best part of our cruise. Sandy

Aug 2016 - Jessica R.

Our guides Clarissa and Tyler we so much fun and put us at ease right away! An awesome excursion and one not to miss.

Aug 2016 - Whitney B.

This whole trip was amazing! They pick you up right at port and have a guided tour through the country, a monster truck drives you to the actual sight for the ziplining, the crew was fantastic and taught everyone tricks and did games during the trip. Once-in-a-lifetime!

Aug 2016 - Pamela T.

It was the best!!!

Jun 2016 - Joy P.

I had been zip lining before in Alaska, and this was so much fun! It had been 8 years, and I was a bit nervous, but all that went away on the test run. Our guides, Dustin and Grizz were a lot of fun and taught us tricks. I finally did the flip and squealed like a little girl! Beautiful scenery over grizzly falls, and a beautiful day to be out zipping around! Thanks for a fun tour!
