Alaska Rainforest Zip Line Excursion

One of my favorite things about the Zipline Excursion with Alaska Canopy Adventures was the Unimog ride! Here’s a view from the back as we crawled up a road impassible to mortal trucks.

The Zip lines are really safe, especially with the redundant cables. But… you still need to learn how to stop yourself, luckily the crew is prepared and the first zip line is an opportunity to learn from your mistakes.

Here’s a close up of the zip line rigging that you’re riding on through the rainforest.

Zip Line Rigging

When riding a zip line, your hand is your brake and keeping your hand up top helps keep you facing forward, unless you like spinning wildly through the air.

Between some of the zip line sections are cable suspension bridges through the rainforest canopy to take you to the next platform. Honestly, I felt like the bridges and platforms were more scary than the ziplines themselves. Zipping is fun!
