As we say “goodbye” to yet another glorious, golden autumn, many of us turn our attention to next summer’s Kenai River fishing season. But, of course, there’s so much more to do in the summertime than hook monster salmon and trophy trout here in Cooper Landing, Alaska. Once the days lengthen and temperatures rise, many of our visiting anglers choose to trek down to nearby Seward, home to the best zipline in Alaska.
Stoney Creek Canopy Adventures
For decades, Kenai River Drifters Lodge has been helping anglers (and their families) plan well-deserved, long-awaited Alaska salmon fishing trips, Kenai Fjords cruises, and zipline tours. When it comes to finding the most exhilarating zipline in Alaska, we always turn to our friends at Stoney Creek Canopy Adventures. They’re stationed in Seward and Talkeetna—Seward is, of course, just 46 miles south of our rustic, cozy Cooper Landing lodging. They’re typically open from late-May through mid-September, a pretty large window for those aiming to zipline in Alaska next summer.
Zipline in Alaska: A 3-Hour Tour
Stoney Creek’s three-hour zipline adventure soars atop towering Sitka spruces and mountainside hemlocks along the southwestern edge of the Chugach National Forest. This expansive zipline adventure park features eight heart-pounding zips, three scenic suspension bridges, and two daring rappels. Many claim that Stoney Creek has the fastest zipline in Alaska, but that’s nearly impossible to verify—we can confirm, however, that this unforgettable thrill ride is worth every penny. With Seward zipline park tours starting at just $110 per person, nothing is stopping you from making the trek down to Resurrection Bay. As you might expect, several of these speedy zips offer glorious vistas of the faraway, snow-capped mountains. You’re encouraged to bring a camera along on these Southcentral Alaska zipline adventures, just remember to keep it secure during the excursion.
