The fact that Alaska has incredible scenery is most likely one of the reasons you’re visiting in the first place. Zipline courses can serve as a perfect way to do something fun and get a new perspective of Alaska. Luckily, ziplines are all situated outside of the towns they’re in so be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife. Depending on where you are, bald eagles, seals, otters, and maybe even a bear! In addition, it’s a great activity for the entire family. Kids will love it and even your grandparents can go, as it doesn’t require a ton of physical activity.
Choosing your zipline comes down to a few different attributes. First, is your experience level. While anyone can absolutely complete any zipline, some beginners may prefer to start out with one not as long, high, or fast as some of the more extreme lines. You should also consider your normal activity level. Further, most ziplines will start you with an introductory line. The guides will show you proper usage of gear and techniques to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Then, they will be there throughout the entire course to help when needed.
