5 Things You’ll Love About Ziplining on Vancouver Island

#1 – The Views

Our ziplines run through a large coastal rainforest situated on a sloping hillside. This location makes it the ideal spot to view East Sooke, the Olympic Mountains, and the Salish Sea. You might see ships passing by, or eagles soaring overhead while you wait to take your next zip! The ocean view is certainly one of the best parts of visiting Sooke, BC.


#2 -The Thrill

Hitting speeds of up to 60 km/hr, you’re sure to experience the thrill and excitement you’re looking for in a fun safe atmosphere. Our ziplines and platforms are inspected daily and are registered with Technical Safety BC, so you can feel confident you are in good hands while on your tour. All you need to do is enjoy the ride.


#3 – The Trail Ride

Since our zipline course is located on a hillside, we’ll need to drive you up to the top in one of our open-air all terrain vehicles. You’ll wind through the forest on old logging roads for a 10 minute drive to the top with a guide pointing out the sights along the way. It’s a fun bonus adventure before your zipline tour even begins.


#4 – The Trees

Our ziplines run through some of the biggest and most beautiful trees in the world. Some Douglas Firs standing around 100m tall. In addition to being a great sturdy zipline anchor, these trees provide shade in the summer, keeping everyone at a comfortable temperature. Most forests on Vancouver Island are dominated by coniferous trees such as Douglas-fir, western red cedar and western hemlock. The remaining forest is made up of broad-leafed trees such as red alder, big leaf maple and arbutus.


#5 – The Weather

Vancouver Island has some of the most mild weather in Canada. Almost anytime is a great time to go ziplining, so we run rain or shine. Even when it rains on Vancouver Island, the temperature is mild, and it can be a really beautiful time to be in the forest. Rain ponchos are available for sale when you check-in and complimentary lockers are also available should you want to bring a change of clothes.
