What is a Canopy Tour?A Zip Line Canopy Tour is a series of cables and platforms that take you on an exhilarating tour through forests and wildlife. Canopy Tours were originally created to study different plant life and trees. Now it has become much more about the exciting "Zip" experience than the study, however, we still try and show wildlife and the forest from a perspective you'll never forget!
Refreshing Canopy Zip Lines are designed to make your experience both refreshing, exhilarating and even challenging at times. Participants will be harnessed to a pulley that rides the cable and will "zip" from platform to platform through the "canopy" of trees through which the course is built. We have two courses to choose from, both providing a refreshing aspect of the forest and wildlife in beautiful Lancaster PA. Check out both our courses for a unique experience that you won't soon forget.
