Tour Details

Imagine gliding through the top of a rich rainforest canopy along a series of eight dual cable zip lines and navigating three aerial bridges suspended between tall spruce, hemlock and cedar trees. This major rainforest reserve embraces one of Alaska’s richest salmon spawning streams and a pristine inter-tidal estuary. Abundant wildlife habitat includes a high concentration of bald eagles, black bear, and a variety of other species.

Your all-terrain custom 4x4 Unimog will transport you up a steep rainforest hillside to the canopy chalet. Here your professionally trained guides outfit you with state of the art safety equipment and provide a detailed orientation prior to zipping from the first platform.

Size really does matter! Your rainforest canopy challenge features a flight over eight ziplines and three suspension bridges; 6,000 feet of high tension cables and ground-based nature trails. Your guides will progressively ease you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 100 feet to the 850 foot pulse pounding “Ben’s Revenge”. Guests often see eagles and bears from the tree platforms. Discover Eagle Creek Falls, and cross three hanging sky bridges; all offering breathtaking views of the virgin forest below. You will be up to 135 feet above the forest floor. Throughout this award-winning adventure you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the rainforest wildlife reserve. Although wildlife sightings are frequent, they cannot be guaranteed.

The final zipline emerges from the rainforest and transports you over lush grassy wetlands to a viewing tower, 55 feet above ground. Descend stairs and gear-down at the base camp, where you will be presented with a custom cast Alaska Canopy Adventures medal in recognition of your achievement. Upon completion of this once in a lifetime experience, enjoy a complimentary snack and hot beverage, view your photograph and shop in the General Store. A narration is provided on the scenic 16 mile round-trip coastal drive to the reserve.

Please note: Tour operates in all types of weather, within safety guidelines.
