Vacations provide endless opportunities to relax and unwind with close friends and family, so, typically, you don’t want the experience to fly by. Unless, of course, you’re talking about ziplining. We’ve listed a few of the world’s most highly recommended zipline locations you’ll want to visit ASAP.
Icy Strait Point, Alaska
Home to the largest ziprider, this is one adventure you won’t want to skip. With six 5,330’ ziplines dropping 1330’, “you will quickly accelerate to speeds exceeding 60 mph as you soar 300 feet about the rainforest below.” And if the view from the top wasn’t enough, the ride up to Hoonah Mountain promises plenty of wildlife including deer, eagles, and occasionally a bear.
Arenal Volcano Park, Costa Rica
An impressive and breathtaking volcano in Costa Rica seems like a prime location for ziplining, and at Arenal Volcano Park that’s exactly what you’ll find. Up until 2010, Arenal was among not only Costa Rica’s but the world’s most active volcanoes, but with eruptive cycle paused, crowds large and small get to enjoy the sight from an exciting new perspective.
Whistler, British Columbia
Standing on steady ground, Whistler already boasts one of the largest ski resorts in North America resembling a dreamy chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. So, you can only imagine how enchanting a bird’s eye view must be during the winter months; now you can find out when you book a zipline tour. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or consider yourself rather conservative, we promise there’s a tour suitable for you.
Sun City, South Africa
The Zip 2000 is the world’s fastest zip slide, “the original extreme zip slide.” With speeds of up to 100 mph, guests certainly get their fair share of an adrenaline rush. And what’s the best way to recover when you’re through? Stopping at The Pilansberg Brewery Bar on your way back.
It’s time to pack your bags and zip out of the North Dallas Corridor!
