This Denali Zipline Tour is a World-Class Eco Adventure!
Experience exciting ziplines, suspension bridges, a rappel, and a spiral staircase on this thrilling Denali zipline tour! Your zipline adventure begins at our office in downtown Talkeetna. Check in with our friendly local staff and board the DZT shuttle for a scenic three-mile drive to the forested ridges above the mighty Susitna River Valley. Upon arrival at our course, you will meet your certified guides and get outfitted in top-quality gear. Then you head for “zipline ground school” to receive a basic orientation.
The pace of the three-hour tour is varied, mixing speed and excitement as you zip through the beautiful northern boreal forest, with time to pause and gaze out from viewing platforms and along walks across the long aerial bridges that take in Denali and the expanse of the Alaska Range.
Your guides will share Denali zipline tour educational moments about the boreal forest and topographical features including ridges, ravines, kettle ponds, and the braided Chulitna and Susitna valleys. The history of Talkeetna runs deep and includes flying and mountaineering in the Alaska Range, gold mining and the quirky local characters. Each guide has their own personal story and who knows what Alaskan tidbits you will be treated to?!
There will be numerous opportunities to glimpse the mountain vistas from the zipline, viewing platforms and suspended sky bridges, allowing ample time for picture taking.
The final and longest zip of the tour will span close to 600 feet – with most of the ride suspended over our “Reflection Pond” – landing on the final platform six feet off the ground with an easy stair exit and a short drive back to downtown Talkeetna.
What to Know and Wear
Check is required 30 minutes prior to your booked time. Closed-toed shoes are required. We recommend comfortable clothing for the current weather conditions. Alaska’s weather can change quickly, so the best advice we can give you is to dress in layers. Feel free to bring a camera along, however you will be responsible for transport, damage or loss of your own photo or video equipment. It is best to have a lanyard that can secure your equipment to your harness or to keep it in a zippered pocket.
While we do not offer a photo package, you will want to share the adventure with friends and family! Participants are more than welcome to bring their phones and cameras. Waterproof phone cases are available for purchase.
Don’t forget to bring your GoPro! Our helmets are equipped with adhesive mounts.
