Canopy tours and ziplining in New England have become all the craze for tourist, families and adrenaline junkies alike. There’s something liberating about soaring 200 feet above the tree line–– the rush of air at your face––the decent amongst solid trunks of pine, hemlock, oak, beech and birch. Even more exhilarating, 60 foot drops and high speed wrap–and–weaves through trees and brush ––the feel of your feet meeting broken ground.
Depending on your fear-factor or comfort level, many canopy and ziplining locations in New England offer a combination of different experiences ranging from short, high-speed descents on a single cable to 1-3 hour canopy tours on multiple cables and platforms.
Ziplining costs vary from as little as $30 to just under $100 depending on the extent of your tour. Ziplining is not difficult. It involves putting on a safety harness, latching yourself to a cable and knowing how to brake–– all of which you are instructed on how to do before taking the plunge. After that, tension and gravity does the rest.
Ziplining is a growing sport and adventure activity that both outdoor enthusiast and families can enjoy almost year round in New England. Ziplining and canopy tours offer a unique way to view panoramic and seasonal landscapes of New England with unusual twists. ...And I can't wait to give it a try!
