Zipline Tours of the Boreal Forest

ONLINE BOOKING RECOMMENDED.

We recommend that you reserve your guided zipline tour online, 2-3 days in advance of arrival, as availability can be limited depending on the time of year.

GUIDED ZIPLINE TOURS OF THE BOREAL FOREST!

Our guided 7-line ziptours are 2 hours in duration (based on tour size of 8 people), take place at heights of 20 – 70 feet above the ground, and are proven to push the physical and emotional limits of individuals in some cases. With that said, we’ve had guests as young as age 4 and as old as age 81 conquer our course; so you can be confident that it is designed for a variety of individual abilities!

Similar to our Cypress Hills location, this course is more of a “hybrid” between aerial trekking and a zipline canopy tour. Although there is very little hiking involved during this adventure, our tours do require guests to complete several vertical climbs to conquer the course such as inclined skybridges and ship ladders!

Course History

During the design phase of our guided zipline tour in Waskesiu, we took a lot of the lessons that we learned while building our first location and put them to good use in the north. Once again, similar to Cypress Hills, we used poles to construct the course and bring you up into the treetops, which gave us complete design over the layout and flow of the tour.

This was extremely important as this course needed to meander through the Aspen 9-hole golf course in a creative way while blending into the forest. The result: spectacular views of a beautiful golf course and a one-of-a-kind zipline tour that spans over 4,200 linear feet from start to finish open to the public in the spring of 2015.

Know Before You Go

Our guided 7-line ziptour is an empowering experience that is designed to showcase the boreal forest in a unique and exciting way!

This two-hour, guided adventure begins at our basecamp which is located at Elk Ridge Resort, five minutes away from the townsite of Waskesiu Lake, SK. You will check-in and then begin the harnessing and safety briefing session. From there, we head out towards the zipline tour on our custom built eco-carts!

Once we are all back on the ground back at our basecamp, we will get your thoughts on the tour, assess the #happydance level and help you remove all your gear!

On this ziptour, we will guide you and encourage you to overcome:

  • 7 ziplines varying in length from 270 feet to over 800 feet
  • 2 climbs up giant ship ladders
  • 2 spectacular suspension bridges 150 feet in length
  • Several different zipline take-offs, landings, and platform transfers

Bring your own items on tour at your own risk and remember to have a secure pocket to place your camera when it is not in use!

After that is complete, we recommend a quick washroom break for everyone and then the guides will get everyone up on the harness deck to begin your adventure!
