The Ultimate Nature Experience
Zip line canopy tours are a fantastically intense experience combining thrilling heights and plunges with unparalleled environmental appreciation. Participants explore regions of the forest canopy that are otherwise inaccessible, allowing for stunning wildlife viewing and environmental education. Our canopy tours speak for themselves: we boast the most creative, aesthetically beautiful courses in the industry.
- Canopy tours range from a few hours to a full day
- Environmental education and wildlife viewing
- Exploring regions of the forest canopy otherwise inaccessible
- Skills like tree climbing and rappelling
- Integration with other adventure activities
Our Courses Speak for Themselves
- Sky bridges -- the best high-tree bridge design in the industry
- Sophisticated speed control and redundant braking systems
- Course platforms engineered to last over 40 years with only 4 points of intrusion to the tree
- No staples and minimal hardware at each tree (maximum 12 intrusions)
- World-class // Premier training programs and staff support
Canopy Tour Installation
- Premier canopy tour locations in Alaska
- Over 25,000 participants served, free from major incidents
- Designed and installed the first twin-line system in the U.S.
- Designed and installed the first quiet run zip-line systems
- Highest retained elevation of any arboreal course in North America – 80 to 100 feet high for over a kilometer!
- Patent-pending designs for tree structures and walk-way bridges
The installation of a canopy tour is a precision process as well as an art form. Detailed planning and project management are essential to preserve the natural environment. At every step, we look to leave the smallest footprint possible. We are experts at installing in trees.
- Stage I: Site selection and thorough survey
- Stage II: Environmental ground work including tree felling and brush clearing.
- Stage III: Termination stations are staged (trees, towers, ground-based structures). Access is made with technical tree-rigging equipment and only necessary branches are removed. No intrusions are made to the trees at any time.
- Stage IV: Lines are hung in the trees by way of feeding along the course through pulleys, from central staging areas.
- Stage V: Calibration and testing to ensure each traverse works perfectly, individually and in connection with the course as a whole.
- Stage VI: Once the course pitch has been fine-tuned, platforms and bridges are installed. The very minimum intrusions are made to the trees in order to meet engineered specifications.
- Stage VII: Extensive testing, final pruning, and installation of necessary security measures are performed prior to initial training.
Built with harmony, precision and balance.
