Experience a fun-filled family eco-adventure on an exhilarating zip-line tour at the Herring Cove rain forest reserve.
Your adventure begins with a ride up a steep hillside in a custom all-terrain 4x4 Unimog to the briefing camp. After outfitting and orientation, it's an uphill hike via an improved rain forest trail to a ground-based practice zip-line, where your guide introduces you to zipping.
Then enter the fly-zone on a course designed for those seeking excitement. Featuring seven zip-lines, nine lofty tree platforms, and two rappelling elements, this is the ultimate Alaska action experience. Fly from tree to tree, soaking in the forest views along the way. In addition to tall stands of spruce, hemlock and cedar, the ecosystem here supports an extensive wildlife population. Eagles and bears are often sighted. Upon completion, rappel to the forest floor, board the Unimog and return to base camp.
Time permitting, explore the totem park and a historic sawmill and see a blacksmith at work. Stop by the General Store to see photos taken during your zip-line experience and to shop for mementos of your Alaska adventure.
