The ultimate eco-adventure, the Rainforest Canopy Zipline Expedition receives some of the most glowing reviews of all Ketchikan tours and is definitely an excellent choice for thrill-seekers! Climb aboard a massive all-terrain Unimog vehicle for the steep ascent up a mountainside to a ziplining course bordering the magnificent Tongass National Forest nature reserve. Then launch yourself on a high-flying, fast-and-furious ride through the top of the rainforest canopy along eight dual-cable ziplines ranging from 100 feet all the way to the adrenaline pumping 750-foot line called Ben’s Revenge. Your heart-pumping adventure covers 6000 feet of scenic canopy and ground-based trails, as well as three suspension bridges swaying high above the forest floor. Keep your eyes peeled, and you could be lucky enough to spot bald eagles, black bears, and the other wildlife abundant in this pristine wilderness area.
This adventure is recommended for those who have already experienced ziplining and are ready to tackle a new challenge. As with other Ketchikan tours, pick-up and drop-off for the scenic 16-mile round trip are conveniently located near the cruise docks in downtown Ketchikan. Your adventure begins as you board the Unimog for a gravity-defying ride up a steep mountainside to the starting point for the ziplining course. Here, your experienced guides will outfit you with state-of-the-art safety equipment and give you detailed orientation before you launch yourself out into the treetops, where you’ll fly along as high as 135 feet above the ground! When you finally descend from the final viewing platform you’ll be awarded with a custom-cast medal for your achievement. Then you can get your breath back while enjoying a snack and hot beverage. For a truly breath-taking adventure, the Rainforest Canopy Zipline expedition is an unparalleled experience!
