The Mammoth Waterfalls and Ultra Zipline Adventure is the newest attraction to experience for those visiting Alaska this summer. The Alaska Excursions package became available in early May, and excursions are planned for the entire summer. Clients can fly through Skagway’s rainforest and admire the views from above, while zipping so close to waterfalls that they can feel the mist.

With each adventure tour, clients meet their guides at a cruise dock before transporting them on a narrated drive to the nearby historic town of Dyea. After a short safety and equipment orientation, travelers can complete all 12 ziplines, each up to 750 feet long, and navigate four adventure sky bridges for perfect photo opportunities of various waterfalls and the forest floor. Prices for the four-hour adventure include roundtrip transportation and start at $169 per adult and $149 per child.

Alaska Excursions also offers a number of other adventures to help clients to discover Alaska, including dog sled rides through the backcountry of a historic gold rush site as well as horseback adventures through the Dyea Valley.
