Overview
More
We provide the best zip line adventures in western North Carolina. Two tours are offered: 1) Canopy Tour: 10 zip lines, a 45' vertical decent off a rock face, and a 120' cable bridge over a 35' cascading waterfall. This tour combines all the fun and thrill of a zip line tour with all the sights and sounds of the Appalachian mountains. Cross the valley at 300' off the valley floor. Must be 10 years old and between 70-250 lbs. to participate. 2) KIDS ZIP: Called the Whistle Pig Adventure Park, our kids zip line is a miniature version of the Canopy Tours. Includes 7 zips, a small bridge, and a 20' long slide out of the tress. Kids can play for up to 2 hours and zip through the course as many times as they can. An adult chaperon can relax in the viewing area or walk around just below the kids to take pictures and cheer them on. A covered picnic shelter and water is provided. Children must be 4 years old and be able to reach 48" high.

My wife and I signed up for our first zip line tour based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. Our guides John and Mattie were awesome. Our group was great. We will definitely be back. Big Mama was outrageous. Thanks Sky Valley.

Our family enjoyed the zip line canopy tour on a day with perfect weather and expert guides! The training before we started helped prepare us for hand-braking tours through numerous, fast zips. No previous training required for a fun-filled time.

$85 for adults, $75 for under 18. No need for coupon for this price. Definitely worth it.
