Description

Get a running start, then launch into flight among the treetops of the Alaskan rainforest on the fast, fun and very exhilarating Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition! Don’t be timid; the guides handle the braking while you zoom up to 30 miles per hour through the woods and over glacially fed waterfalls — so close you’ll feel the mist as you fly by! One of the best Skagway excursions for thrillseekers and nature lovers, the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition will take you soaring through a course of 11 ziplines, the longest of these stretching 750ft through the canopy! Stop for breath along the way at four state-of-the-art suspension bridges, perfect spots for taking in the beauty of the wilderness and capturing some stunning photos. Plus there’s more to this four-hour adventure than ziplining: getting up and down the steep and rugged mountain road to the base camp aboard a customized Unimog all-wheel drive vehicle is an adventure in itself!

Following pick-up at your cruise ship, your outing — one that adventure lovers say is among our best Skagway excursions — begins with a scenic 11-mile drive to historic Dyea, a once-thriving Gold Rush hub. Here you’ll learn about the fascinating history of the town in its heyday before hopping aboard a monster Unimog for the exhilarating ride up a rugged mountain road toward the zipline course. On the mountaintop, you’ll be suited up in safety gear and instructed by expert guides on what to expect during the course. After successfully completing the adventure, stop in at the base camp café for coffee or a snack. Then share your exciting experiences on the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition with others during the Unimog ride back downhill and the return trip to the Skagway cruise docks. Join us for a one-of-a-kind zipline expedition, and you’ll understand why we’re confident in calling this one of our best Skagway excursions!
