Canopy Climb

Canopy Climbs give you an unforgettable birds-eye view of the world, while you are immersed in the canopy of majestic trees. Our expert instructors will introduce you to the extraordinary, diverse world of trees, while teaching you the basics of tree climbing mechanics, including climbing techniques, balance and safety. Climbers will have the opportunity to ascend and descend multiple times, exploring different parts of the tree's structure, limbs and canopy.
