Swinging Bridges In Alaska

September 24, 2020

Are there a lot of zip lining courses in Alaska?

Actually, there are quite a few of them! Alaska’s incredible mountain scenery and tall trees provide a wonderful opportunity to experience a zip lining course. In fact, the longest zip line in the world is right here in Alaska on the Icy Strait. There are all kinds of courses around the state, with many in the rainforest, some right on Resurrection Bay, and others offering views of Denali or Matanuska Glacier. Alaska has lots of ways to experience our wonderful scenery, especially in a thrilling way!

Are there any other thrilling ways to experience Alaska besides a zip line?

Absolutely! Alaska is a land of extremes, and there are tons of extreme ways to experience it. You can surf the bore tide in the Cook Inlet, or surf the cold waves on Kodiak Island or Yakutat. You can stand up paddle the alpine lakes at the top of your hikes, or spend the night on a glacier. Backcountry ski or snowboard after you get dropped off on an epic peak by a helicopter. Hike the tallest mountain in North America, Denali, or bike the Dalton Highway above the Arctic Circle. Alaska is an incredible place to live and play!
