Ziplining in the Smoky Mountains

Enjoy a truly bird’s-eye view of the Blue Ridge Mountains as you fly between the trees on a North Carolina zipline tour. These high-flying adventures offer breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, plus a unique perspective on the trees and plants that call our Smoky Mountain forests home.

There are zipline adventures for everyone, from the most daring thrill-seekers to the youngest family members. Mountaintop tours fly from one ridgeline to the next at top speeds, while adventure parks boast challenging treetop obstacle courses and exploration opportunities for kids as young as 3 or 4 years old.

Experienced guides lead tours safely from the forest floor to the treetop canopies, sharing their rich knowledge of the old-growth forests, peaks and coves you’ll explore. Each season of the year offers a new backdrop to your adventure, from the fresh green leaves and clear views of spring to the brilliant palette of changing foliage in fall.

Zipline outfitters offer other fun attractions beyond their signature ziplines. A massive 80-foot swing makes adventurous riders feel like kids again. And those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground can tour the forest by jeep or UTV.

These popular mountain zipline tours will make for an unforgettable North Carolina getaway.
