Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic, narrated drive to the rich rainforest at Herring Cove.

This award-winning eco-adventure combines a flight over eight ziplines and a journey across three aerial bridges over a ground-based network of nature trails and boardwalks. The course is ideally located in the middle of the 17.5 million acre Tongass National Forest.

Upon arriving, you'll board a 4x4 all-terrain vehicle for a short drive to Canopy Chalet. Here, you'll receive a detailed safety briefing and gear up with state-of-the-art safety equipment as you prepare to launch from the first platform. Your guides will ease you into the forest canopy along cables ranging from a short 175 feet to the 850-foot, pulse-pounding "Ben's Revenge." You'll watch for wildlife from the tree platforms, discover a hidden forest waterfall and cross three hanging sky bridges, all offering breathtaking views of the virgin forest up to 135 feet below.

The final zipline emerges from the rainforest and transports you over lush grassy wetlands to a viewing tower 55 feet above the ground. Rappel back to land and explore the other on-site amenties.

Enjoy viewing photos of your zipline adventure in the General Store or take the opportunity to photograph eagles up close and learn about local birds of prey at Alaska Raptor Center's exhibits. Wander among the totem park before the scenic drive back to the pier.
