Ziplining

Ziplining

Soaring across the captivating blue sky amongst the green treetops in a beautiful rainforest can offer you the thrill of a lifetime. New destinations for ziplining have begun appearing in countless locations.  Here are some of the top countries to experience this adventurous sport. 

  • Costa Rica: Ziplining began in the cloud forests of Costa Rica. What better place to take part in the thrilling activity?  
  • Alaska: With glaciers, mountains, lakes and forests, Alaska is a great place to zipline. 
  • Puerto Rico:  Some ziplines can reach as high as 5,000 feet off the ground—like the one in Toro Verde National Park in Puerto Rico
  • New Zealand: New Zealand is a popular place for ziplining. And it’s no surprise why. Imaging soaring above the Hauraki Gulf, bushland and steep cliffs and sandy coves. 

Ziplining can take participants at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Undoubtedly, such an experience can take your breath away, but it’s important to take precautions when ziplining, as injury or even death can result from faulty equipment or improper technique. Unlike amusement parks and some other adventure sports, ziplining isn’t heavily regulated by the government. Pay attention to instructions from your tour guide, and beware of frayed or old-looking equipment. For this and other high-risk sports, you should consider adventure sports coverage.
