High-flying adventure meets Alaskan coastal rainforest on the Grizzly Falls Ziplining Expedition. There's a reason why this is one of the top must-do activities in Skagway according to travelers. This 4-hour adventure has something for both nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike, and the Skagway zipline tour is arguably one of the most renowned ziplining tours along the Alaskan cruise route because of its picturesque, natural setting amongst massive spruce and cedars. 11 ziplining stations take you high in the canopy with views over glacially fed waterfalls and mountainous rainforests. Go fast and go far as you fly up to 45 miles per hour on cables up to 2 football fields long! 4 beautiful, ultramodern suspension bridges cross over this rugged landscape and provide the perfect platform for memorable photos!

It's more than just the ziplining that makes this one of the best Skagway tours; this experience provides the whole package! Starting with a pickup at your cruise ship, your guide shuttles you about 11 miles down the road to historic Dyea which was a bustling port town back in the Gold Rush days. A surprisingly thorough history lesson provides a great start to the day and quickly you'll arrive at base camp, the launching off point for this Skagway shore excursion. But what goes down must first go up, so hop into a fully customized Unimog, a monster machine that shuttles participants up the rugged mountain road to start of the ziplining experience. Even this ride warrants smiles all-around, as it climbs up paralleling beautiful glacier streams and fresh Alaskan air.

This is about where the adrenaline kicks in. Professional guides prepare you with the necessary equipment and information, and then you're off to explore this land from the treetops! Get a running start and then let go and glide over pristine Alaskan wilderness below. Soar from station to station and watch your friends and family do the same. After some amazing photographs together, hop in the Unimog for the ride back down and share your mutual "That was amazing!" experiences with one another.
