Towering Pines Canopy Tour

Advance reservations are highly recommended

by calling 1-800-328-3325 or
locally at 218-388-2296

Open from mid May to late October

The course consists of 8 zip lines taking you from platform to platform, high up in 300 year old white pine trees. Each group of up to 10 people is led by two experienced and well trained Sky Guides. Each stop has a bit of a story to share--from our geology, to the view of Canada and the Voyageurs trade route, to the ecology of the forest, to our boreal birds, and more.

As your adventure begins, each persons registers in, and heads up to meet your sky guide at the admin building, and gets acquainted with the course equipment.

Then everyone gets into their harnesses with the guides checking all adjustments. On you go to the practice zip to get comfortable with how the equipment works and give it a whirl with this short low level zip.

Next you load up into 6 person Ranger ATVs for 1/2 mile ride to the start of the course. The two sky guides go over everything with you, then one guide zips to the next station, so he is ready and waiting for each particpant. As you start your adventure, one guide gets you ready for your departure and the second guide welcomes you to the next stop.

The course takes about 2+ hours and offers one thrill after another. Our oldest particpant last summer was a 90 year old woman (pictured below), and she was so excited about it that she could hardly wait to tell her firends.

We operate from mid May to late October and offer 5 rides a day (except for some of the early and late weeks). Advance reservations are encouraged but not required.

The cost is $89.00 per person and we can accommodate guests from 10 years of age, to a maximum of 240#.

Reservations can be made by calling 1-218-388-2296 or if you are out of our area 1-800-328-3325
