Redwoods are practically everywhere in some forests in California, so you really don’t need to travel too far to see them. However, when it comes to seeing them from above, there are not too many places to choose from. Sonoma Canopy Tours has managed to create ziplining thrills high up over the redwoods over in Guerneville. These ziplining adventures will get your heart racing, while still making you want more!
The Forest Flight will have you ziplining two hundred feet above the ground. There are seven different ziplines to choose from and you will reach thirty miles per hour on them. You will also have opportunities to cross sky bridges and rappel down to the ground at the end. Oh, and you can’t forget about the thirty-foot spiral staircase!
Tree Top Flights
The Tree Top Flights will have you two hundred fifty feet above the ground, as you zoom around at forty miles per hour. There are seven ziplines here as well, but the longest one is fifteen hundred feet in length. Before you rappel back down to the ground, you must make sure you have taken the time to cross over the two sky bridges.
The Night Flights take place on the Forest Flight ziplines course. You will still get all the thrills, and speed, as you would during the day. However, your experience will be much different under the nighttime sky. It will be eerily quiet, as the moon and stars shine brightly from above.
While you can easily wander through the redwoods’ forests when you are visiting California during your next road trip, a zipline adventure will be met with so much more enthusiasm by your children. If you are tired of the moans and groans when you mention a family road trip, lead off with a ziplining adventure instead.
As a mom, I know how difficult children of all ages can make vacations. But I also know that if I plan enough exciting adventures like ziplining, I can keep the eye rolls to a minimum. Let me help you plan your next vacation, so we can quickly get your kids on board with all the fun that awaits you all!
