Redwood Canopy Tours
Join North Coast Adventure Centers for a Canopy Tour 70-100 feet up in the redwoods of Arcata's Redwood Park inside the Arcata Community Forest. We are different because we are more hands-on (you are doing the gear transfers), our guide to guest ratio is close to the lowest in the business, and you will be zipping in our product testing course for our clothing line, Humboldt AdventureWear.
You will start on the ground learning terms and techniques needed to safely maneuver through the canopy. After the training is completed the next challenge will be to ascend up into the redwoods and ride a series of ziplines through the canopy. Our trained guides will help you step out of your comfort zone and experience the beauty of the redwood canopy. You and your partner will be transfering between our three zip lines, 75 feet up in the canopy before being given the option to zip backwards or climb from 75 feet up to 100 feet (through the branches) and peak out toward Humboldt Bay. From there you will be lowered in a Rappel-like fashion back down to the ground.
Adventure Park: This experience is not a zip line but an adventure park model, like a ropes course. This means that you will learn how to keep your self safe, climb up the tree on your own (like rock climbing), then enjoy the beauty of the redwood canopy while you and your partner traverse from tree to tree.
Our trained guides run tours with participants over 12 years old and 5 feet tall. Climbing, zipping, and rappelling through the trees will help you appreciate their power and beauty. Tours run between 2-3 hours long.
