Experience the wilderness of Skagway from high in the sky!

This tour is perfect for those who want to embrace their wild side! Go up a mountain in a unimog, zoom along 10 ziplines, and walk across 4 suspension bridges. Not only will you feel the wind in your hair, but you'll feel the mist of glacier-fed waterfalls as you cruise along the treetops!

Your journey begins with a historic tour of Skagway, followed by a scenic drive along 9 miles of coastline. Once you arrive in Dyea, you'll be transferred to a unimog: A rugged, 4-wheel drive vehicle that is necessary for navigating the rough mountain roads. As you ride up the mountain, you'll see a preview of the Alaskan rain forest and glacier-fed waterfalls that you'll be gliding over shortly!

Once you reach the top of the mountain, you'll be suited up in equipment that meets the highest safety standards, while your trained guide provides a safety briefing and lets you know what to expect on your wild ride! The course consists of 10 ziplines. You'll glide just above glacier-fed waterfalls, so closely that you'll actually feel the mist as you fly by! If zooming at high speeds is not your cup of tea, don't fret, there is a brake system that allows you to go at your own pace. However, if you want to channel your inner thrill seeker, you can zoom up to 45 miles per hour!

Once you've had fun cruising along the tree tops and waterfalls, there's still more to do. There are 4 state-of-the-art suspension bridges, where you can slow down and take photos of your loved ones with the beautiful Alaskan wilderness as a backdrop.

After the suspension bridges, it's time to head back onto the unimog, for another fun ride down the mountain. While you enjoy your scenic ride back to Skagway, bask in the glory of being one of the few adventurers to glide along the mountaintops of the Alaskan wild!
