Enter the fly-zone! An eco-rainforest adventure for those seeking excitement and exhilaration! Featuring seven zip lines, 10 lofty tree platforms, Alaska's longest sky bridge, a 250-foot long mountain slide, and rappelling. Your adventure begins with a ride up the steep hillside in a custom all-terrain 4x4 Mercedes Unimog, to the outfitting chalet. After outfitting and an orientation, it's an uphill hike via an improved rainforest trail to a ground-based practice zip line, where your guides introduce you to zipping. This is your introduction to 5,200 feet of dual cable zip lines, intersected with a 250-foot long suspension bridge, providing an aerial view of Bear Creek and a forest waterfall. You'll rappel to the ground from the last tree platform. Speeding down the mountain slide will be one of the highlights of your zip line adventure. Experience the panoramic ocean, forest and mountain views from the tree platforms on this exciting and safe adventure at the lush Herring Cove rainforest reserve, an eight mile coastal drive from Ketchikan. In addition to tall stands of spruce, hemlock and cedar, the ecosystem here supports an extensive wildlife population. Although sightings cannot be guaranteed, guests often see eagles and bears. Board the Unimog for a forest hillside descent and transportation to the base camp, where you'll be presented with a special award in recognition of your achievement. View your action photograph and shop in the General Store before departure for the dock.
