Zip Line Canopy Tours in New England

ziptours You need a heart for adventure – but not necessarily a body of an athlete – to enjoy the thrill of zooming through the treetops and clambering across aerial suspension bridges at New England’s zip lines. In just a handful of years, these playgrounds in the tree canopy have sprung up across New England, serving people’s desire to unleash that inner Tarzan. Guides convey you safely along zip lines, through elevated obstacle courses, and across chattering rope and suspended bridges. Really fun for all averagely fit people as long as you carry enough weight to propel you (sorry, babies and toddlers). A great thing to do on a family getaway.

Zip through the forest canopy of the Berkshires!

It’s not just an ordinary zip line at Zoar Outdoor in the Berkshires: It’s a genuine canopy built directly in the trees, with 11 zip lines connected through platforms and two sky bridges to give you that real sensation of flying through the forest. The three-hour exhilarating canopy tour, with two experienced guides for every eight guests, features plenty of opportunities to gaze out over the gorgeous Deerfield River Valley and Northern Berkshires. And cameras (bring a lanyard!) are OK on the progressively faster course, which reaches a height of 50 feet. Ages 10 and up are welcome as are groups of up to eight. A safety and training lesson on the ground and a practice zip precedes the tour, which goes rain or shine unless there is lightning or excessive winds.
