Zip Line Canopy Tour FAQ

How long does the canopy tour last?
The tour lasts approximately 2 - 3 hours

Can I stop the tour if I find I am afraid of heights?
Many people have a fear of heights, but still enjoy our tours. You will be double-clipped to a steel cable at all times when you are zipping. Our guides trained to follow absolute protocol procedures and will be with you every step of the way to answer your questions, and provide additional support.

    • Warm gloves
    • Fleece or wool top
    • Ski jacket or shell face mask (if very cold)
