What to expect and what not to expect with this Juneau shore excursion

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!

  • Just under 4 hours duration
  • 7 ziplines, 10 platforms
  • Includes a fun axe-throwing contest!
  • Round trip transportation

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.

Minimum Ages, Cancellations, Accessibility, Etc.


  • Restrictions: The minimum age for participants is 8 years old and all participants must fall between 70 lbs. and 250 lbs. These restrictions have been carefully determined collaboratively with the builders and insurance company based on the maturity level required for an active tour of this nature, and we must hold to these requirements in all cases.
  • Accessibility: You should be comfortable with heights, a short easy walk on a maintained trail and ascending/descending some stairs. This tour is not suitable for people who are pregnant or have certain medical conditions such as neck or back injuries.
  • Cancellation Policy: In the event your cruise ship is late, delayed, or doesn't make it into port we will issue a refund for the tour. Changes or cancellations are allowed up to 14 days prior to the tour departure. Any cancellations made within 14 days of the tour departure are non-refundable..
  • What to Wear: Please be sure to wear long pants, layers and closed-toe shoes. It can be cold, warm, sunny, or rainy on the day of your tour, so wearing layers will allow you to adjust as needed. It's a safe bet that the zipline course may be just a bit cooler than downtown due to being at a higher elevation. A rain jacket is provided for every guest during the tour - to both keep you dry and to keep any tree sap off of your clothes.

You've got questions, we've got answers
Q:How many ziplines are included on this tour?
This tour consists of 7 ziplines, 10 platforms and an aerial suspension bridge (with a cable we clip you into above that and hand rails to hold onto along the way). The lines vary in length and height throughout the course.
Q:What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port?
It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will refund you.
Q:Why makes this zipline tour different from any other in Alaska?
This course does not require participants to "hand brake" themselves. This zipline course is designed to bring people onto the platforms appropriately, and there is a back-up mechanical brake that the guide controls, so you are not responsible for putting your hands on the cables to slow yourself down. Hand braking can lead to injuries if the participant is not careful, so we have eliminated that risk to enhance your personal experience. You can now relax and enjoy the ride!
Q:How do you slow down on the zipline? Are there brakes?
This course is routinely inspected to meet or exceed the ANSI-accredited ACCT guidelines. The steel cable that was used to build this course can hold 27,000 lbs, and there are even back-up cables throughout the course as well, so you are clipped into 2 lines rather than just one. You will be clipped in by your guides throughout the entire tour, and you have a back-up clip in point to put your mind at ease. All of the gear meets National Fire Protection Agency standards, and our guides go through extensive safety training and have First Aid & CPR certifications. They will give you a detailed briefing before the tour begins, and you can take comfort in knowing that thousands of happy customers have zipped through our tour before you.
Q:Is ziplining safe?
Some guests show up with the clothes on their back and the smile on their face. Other guests show up with a small backpack that contains an extra clothing layer, a bottle of water, a snack and other personal items. So, it's up to you! Space is often limited on the shuttle, so it's best to keep your items to a minimum, but bring what you need. While on the tour, you're welcome to use your camera to snap photos of the beautiful scenery, yourself and your group! A smaller camera works best, but if you're comfortable bringing your DSLR you may; however, they can be burdensome while zipping at times. Keep in mind that you will be several stories above the forest floor at times while ziplining, so if you drop your camera it will likely not survive; for this reason, be sure that your camera has secure neck & wrist straps or is compact enough to fit in the small zippered hand pocket of the provided rain jacket. If bringing a large camera, the staff ultimately determines if your camera may be taken on the course, as it pertains to your safety and the safety of other guests and our guides. Once you arrive at the zipline course, your guides will collect the group's belongings and secure them at the lodge. Upon returning to the zipline lodge after your exciting tour, you will be able to quickly retrieve your personal items!
