What is a zipline?

Also called a canopy adventure, a zipline is a tree-based aerial trekking course. Safely clipped in harnesses, participants glide from platform to platform by way of free-moving pulleys suspended on cables high above the ground. The course design is such that natural gravity acts as the propelling force.

The Kohala Zipline Kohala Canopy Tour on the Big Island of Hawaii is unique in that it’s almost entirely tree-based. Our elevated platforms are built directly into the trees. Our suspension bridges arch high above a streambed. You are up in the forest at all times, so you can fully experience a serene Hawaiian environment. How do we get you out of the trees? The course ends with a safe and exciting rappel.
