DescriptionSix ziplines, six unique experiences. From the 90 foot warm-up line to the 2,400 foot Kokanee Creek Canyon crossing mega-ride, you zoom down an entire mile of gravity induced fun. Season of Operation: April to October. Located 19 km (12 mi) east of Nelson on Highway 3A, then turn onto Kokanee Glacier Park Road and travel 2.2 km north. Watch for signage on left side.
You'll be launching from a series of tree platforms and towers, with lines reaching 300 feet off the ground. Other than shrieks of laughter, the only sound you will hear is the rush of Kokanee Creek below you.
A tour takes approximately one to two hours from the time you get harnessed up to the time you are wondering back to the parking lot. Kokanee Mountain Zipline cater to a variety of groups: corporate, school and private functions. Group rates are offered.
Family-friendly adventure is what Kokanee Mountain Zipline is all about and their highly trained guides are there to make sure you are having a good time while nudging you to the edge of your comfort zone.
