Zip It!

Flying high in the Last Frontier

If you’ve ever thought about ziplining, Juneau’s the place. 

Strap into a harness and soar from tree-house platform to tree-house platform in this thrilling—and safe—eco-tourism adventure. 

Juneau boasts two different zipline tours, Alaska Zipline Adventures, with a course at Eaglecrest Ski Area, and Alaska Canopy Adventures, with a course on the south end of Douglas Island, near the historic Treadwell mine. The best part: you don’t need any special skills or equipment, just closed-toed shoes. Comfort with heights helps, too.
