Get a bird's eye view of the mountains! Soar through forest canopies!
There are so many ways to explore the mountains. On land you can hike or bike. In the water you can raft or swim. How can you explore the mountain forests by air? With a zip line of course! Harness yourself to an exciting adventure and glide through the canopy like a bird. See a whole new dimension of woodland habitats from a brand new perspective!
Where can you embark on such an adventure? Here at Hawksnest’s Zip Line Canopy Tours!
Ready to soar like a bird from tree to tree in a rain forest? Zipline or canopy tours give you a bird's-eye view of the forest, move you across canyons and show you scenery that can't be viewed from the ground.
What is a zipline tour?
One zipline lover describes it as "being as close as you can get to flying across the top of the jungle." Participants don a harness with a caribiner that is attached to a wheel on a cable strung between trees. You push off from a platform on one tree and zip along the cable to a platform on another tree. You can be anywhere from 30- to 180-feet off the ground and, literally, flying between the trees at a height in jungles where birds hang out on the branches.
