Juneau Shore Excursion: Douglas Island Zipline Tour From Juneau
OverviewGo from the shore to the rainforest on a morning or afternoon adventure from the port of Juneau to a zipline park on Douglas Island. A high-speed boat ride zooms across the Gastineau Channel to Douglas Island, where you hit the ground running with an off-road drive through the rainforest to 10 ziplines. The dense forest becomes your aerial playground as you soar above attractions like Bullion Creek and the old Treadwell Mine, and end with a rappel descent from the final platform.

This adventure is a genuine eco-tour. We have built the course in the old growth forest over flowing streams where there is a natural clearing of trees to minimize the impact. Also, we are one of the only "green" tourism operators in Alaska. Our business operates completely on hydro-electric power.
