Alaska Zipline Tour
Alaska's temperate rainforest sets the scene for some amazing ziplining opportunities, and the Alaska Zipline Tour tops the list in Juneau. This zipline adventure is tried and tested by thousands of previous participants as one of the best Juneau shore excursions for thrill-seekers. Zip through a forested canopy high up in the Eaglecrest Ski Area, soaring over a pristine wilderness below while surrounded by panoramic mountain views in all directions. There is no hand-braking required with this unique zip course and expert guides add to the experience, creating an atmosphere of safety, adventure and fun!
Start this half-day excursion with a pick-up right in downtown Juneau and very close to the cruise ships. Your guide will meet you there, and you'll load up for a short transfer over to Eaglecrest Ski Area, the summer home of the Alaska Zipline Tour. A safety briefing and orientation equips you with the knowledge, while guides equip you with the gear to go sailing in the treetops. Now the excitement starts to build as it's time for the first zip station!
Take a leap of faith from the first platform and immediately you'll be soaring along, passing along old-growth temperate rainforest while the sights and smells of Alaskan wilderness put a smile on your face. Watch friends and family follow suit, transferring from station to station and walking across aerial suspension bridges. Guides are there every step of the way to ensure safety and comfort while providing insights into the ecology of the area. Following the ziplining, try your hand on the axe-throwing course, getting a quick glimpse into lumberjack skills that are a deep part of Alaskan culture and living. Decompress and degear after the tour, share your pictures with friends and family and recount this awesome adventure on the return transfer back to downtown Juneau and the cruise docks.
