Little Hoonah doesn't have much to see but lots to do. I did a short (8 mile) bike ride and topped it off with the zipline ride. Thank god i did not actually SEE the zipline before I got to the 'Ride Ejection Center'(my terminology) about 1400 feet high otherwize I might have chickened out! It was a super-gas - especially if, like me, you never did this before. The first half descent feels more like a free fall as you are secured in something like a parachute harness. You drop like a rock after mettalic doors open and you won't know what hit you - I don't remember anything except being airborne and looking at clouds around eye-level. It is one major blast...even a 70 years old is NOT too old to experience a controlled fall unless the person has a heart condition. I am a fit 62 and this experience will last a lifetime.. unless I do it again! I love AK too.

Zip line tours are so much fun! I'm glad you had such a good experience with your tour in Alaska! When I get to Alaska, and I will someday, I might have to add zip lining to my list of activities I want to do. Are there a lot of different zip line tours or only a few?
