The Denali Zipline tour begins with a three-mile shuttle ride into the forest surrounding Talkeetna. After arriving at the zipline, course guests are outfitted in harnesses, helmets, and gloves before starting ground school. The lesson is basic but helpful, with each participant practicing the basics of traversing and braking." With school complete, it's off to the course.
After that first leap of faith it's nothing but fun.
Approaching the first zipline is nerve wracking for many, but the trepidatious feeling quickly fades after that initial step off the platform. There's nothing quite like zooming through the high tree canopy with the ground below, and sky above obscured by a blur of green leaves. From here on out, it's nothing but fun.
The tour moves between platforms built around tree trunks. The dense trees hide the course, so every new obstacle is an exciting surprise. There are ziplines of all lengths and speeds, three lengthy suspension bridges, and a rappel that tends to bring back those initial butterflies. Carefully watched by the guides, and clipped into secure lines the entire time, it's as safe as it is a thrill. The tour culminates with a final 600-foot zipline through a forest clearing, and over a reflective pond to a ground-level platform.
The Denali Zipline tour in Talkeetna features nine ziplines, three suspension bridges, one rappel, and one spiral staircase. The entire tour runs high up in the tree canopy. There is a maximum of eight guests to a tour. Tours operate rain or shine.
