Thrill seekers now have even more opportunities to enjoy Alaska’s beauty from above with new canopy tours stringing up across the Last Frontier this summer. Click the appropriate link to head to the company’s website.

In May 2012, Mica Guide’s Glacier View Adventures opened in the Mat-Su valley, sporting a zipline that soars 200 feet high and stretches over a quarter of a mile with views of surrounding mountains and the Matanuska Glacier.

Denali Zipline Tours, located in Talkeetna, opened in June offering visitors eight zipline courses across the northern boreal forest with a birds-eye view of Mount McKinley and the Alaska Range. In addition to these newcomers, there are a number of other zipline tour providers around the state.

Along Alaska’s Inside Passage, Alaska Zipline Adventures in Juneau offers a canopy tour through the pristine Alaska rainforest, and Alaska Canopy Adventures (www.alaskacanopy.com) has three different zipline tours available in Juneau or Ketchikan.

Those coming to Alaska on a cruise ship can also sign up to enjoy a zipline adventure by booking a shore excursion with Skagway Adventure Park and Zip Lines or they can visit Icy Strait Point to experience the world’s longest, largest and highest ZipRider zipline (also available to independent travelers).
