Alaska Zipline Adventures

Rainforest Eco-Tours at Eaglecrest

Alaska ZiplineImagine yourself suspended above the ground, gliding from one uniquely themed platform to the next on a series of ziplines through the Alaskan rainforest.  This once-in-a-lifetime adventure includes an ascending drive through the scenic Tongass National Forest.  Once you are on the tour, you will be able to see the alpine forest and unique flora and fauna from an aerial perspective.  This year, you can also enjoy the views from our new aerial suspension bridge!

This adventure is a genuine Eco-Tour:  we do not use ATVs or high speed boats, and we have built the course in the old growth forest over flowing streams where there is a natural clearing of trees to minimize the impact.  Also, we are currently in the process of becoming a "certified green" business.  Our lodge runs on hydro-electric power in the summer.

You will also have an opportunity to learn about the fascinating eco-systems of Southeast Alaska through photographs and narrative.  This tour is a perfect choice for a rainy day because we provide raingear, and you will have some shelter from the rainforest canopy.

This tour is locally owned and operated and is designed for people ages 10 and above. You should be comfortable with heights, a short, easy walk on a maintained trail, and ascending/descending some stairs. 

Please be sure to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.  Safety is our top priority.  You will be outfitted with our top of the line safety gear, and our expertly trained guides will lead you througout the tour. This tour is not suitable for people who are pregnant or have medical conditions.  The tour is designed for people who weigh between 70-250 lbs.
