As you all know from my social posts, Icy Strait Point is one of my favorite ports not only in Alaska but among the ports I have been to around the World! The untouched beauty, lack of lousy tourist shops, and focus on local beauty make it shine at the top of my must-do list! If you ask people who have been to Icy Strait Point the one thing they must do, most will mention the Ziprider. Not just any Ziprider though, the world’s largest Ziprider!
The Ziprider at Icy Strait Point stands 1330 feet above the port and boasts a length of 5,330 feet! What also makes this zipline unique is the fact that 6 people can do it at once and you do not have to brake on your own! This allows you and your friends or family to go together for an amazing trip from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the port by your cruise ship!
Getting down on the thrill of a lifetime is just part of the fun! Before this year, a 45-minute trip to the top of the mountain had to be done by backwood road. Luckily for us, Icy Strait Point has us covered with their new Gondola system! The system takes what would have been a 45-minute trip down to a 10-minute trip with some amazing views up to the top of the mountain!
Once you get to the top of the mountain, you can enjoy the top-of-the-mountain view and their new beer garden and food truck before an exhilarating ride back down the mountain! If you are looking for a must-do experience at Icy Strait Point, then make sure you book a ride on the Ziprider!
