This is a 2 hour tour, which takes through about 15 different zip line runs. Each metal cable is securely fastened a tree at each end. Each landing point, is secured by a banister platform, joining you to your next run. All zip liner participants, are outfitted with gear, and securely fasten to a series of metal cable for the entire tour.
For those interested in staying dry, the canopy top zip line adventure is available as a trip in itself. Zip lining is as close as you can get to flying over the jungle. As you soar from tree to tree like Tarzan, experience a bird’s-eye view of the Belize jungle, and scenery that cannot be seen from the ground.
Zip lines are sturdy metal cables that run for hundreds of feet through the jungle canopy. Participants climb to platforms mounted high up in the trees and then are attached to secure harnesses that are attached to the cables or zip lines. Participants then launch themselves into the air, sailing at high speed through the rain-forest, giving them an excellent view of the plants and animals that call the canopy home.
Some lines are longer than others but all offer the same amazing adventure cross over the lush rain-forest and river and experience the thrill of the jungle.
You will be securely fastened to a harness that is attached to a cable by expert guides & platform directors. With the push-off from each platform, which is situation up in a tree, the lines lead from one platform to another. If you’re not comfortable with heights, don’t look down!
