The original zipline canopy tour in Western North Carolina, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours offers 13 different zip lines and 8 sky bridges. Our two highest platforms have unbelievable views of Clingman’s Dome, Fontana Lake and waterfalls. This gliding experience, naturally fueled by a gradual elevation change, takes you through multiple ecosystems, past hemlocks, into hardwoods and through a deciduous forest packed with native flowering plants. All Canopy Tour Rangers are trained to, and all courses are built and inspected to, ACCT Standards to provide for your well-being and fun. This is a great experience for families.
NANTAHALA Kid Zip – the only Zipline for young Zippers!
A fantastic Aerial zipline playground for kids 4 to 12. Zip, Climb and Play in the trees on three different courses. Repeat as many times as you like for two hours. There are hangout places for parents, grandparents and others who just want to watch (you can even bring a picnic lunch).

Zippers must be in good physical condition and able to raise their arms over their head to regulate speed and braking. Please do not participate if you are pregnant, and if you have chronic back or shoulder injuries, you should consult a physician before zipping.
Since harness seats wrap around your upper thigh, shoulders and waist, please wear shirts with collars, long shorts or pants. Closed-toed shoes are required. Long hair must be tied back. Cell phones should be left in the car.
