    Unfortunately I do not live anywhere near Georgia but I have always wanted to travel the world. The day I do decide to travel the world I will be sure to check out this place. It seems like something that is in my alley and something that I will enjoy so thank you for this article. I will be sure to share this article with friends too

      Hi Aubin, Thanks for checking in! North Georgia has beautiful natural scenery and lots of fun attractions to explore – ziplining is just one of the fun adventures you can experience during your trip. We hope to see you around soon!

    Hi Alyce, you do write some great articles I love it, but I’ve never actually ridden the zipline yet. I’m hoping to ride soon after reading this article about all the great North Georgia places for a zipline adventure or course. I like how you explained everything in detail for someone with no experience, thanks for sharing.

      Hi Ricky, 

      I hope you have a great time on your first zipline ride! That first step off of the zipline platform can be a little intimidating, but as soon as you take that step, all the real fun begins! Enjoy!!

    We are taking a roadtrip in June and will spend some time in Georgia.  These zipline and canopy tours seem a lot less expensive than I would have guessed.  I will look into their location and see if any of them are on our route, because this would be a great way to experience northern GA.  They look like great opportunities for sightseeing!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Max, It’s nice that there are multiple zipline options in North Georgia to choose from. The weather should be perfect in June for a scenic zip through the trees! Enjoy!

    I really enjoyed reading this article with the different characteristics about the zipplining adventure potrayed in there. I have had the pleasure to experience the ziplining adventure in my country Saint Lucia. It is located in a community called “Dennry” and it is a place where families or individuals can go to enjoy their time there as well. 

    The last time I went was with my extended familiy who came down from overseas and boiii was it a blast! 

    I would reccommend ziplining for anyone who is visiting or persons from the country who would like a change of scenery and are adventurous!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Genille, Thanks for sharing. It’s such a fun experience!!

      My first ride on a zipline was while traveling in Costa Rica. It was so nice to get up above the canopy and then descend into the shade of the trees while on the zipline. I’ve been hooked on zipline rides ever since!

    This looks like a fabulous vacation. Lots of fun and a new adventure in the Georgia Mountains.

    The sights of the mountains being from an exhilarating viewpoint of the ziplines must be great and it sure would be an experience to remember. The price seems reasonable, the ziplines look quite lengthy and so long as health and safety procedure is followed this looks to be a great trip to take.

    This is a very amazing post you have written here. I really like that kids can also have their own. To be very honest, I’m not sure I’m ready for the adventure but since I’m here already, I think I should get brave and take a zip. I wouldn’t try one over the lake though.  Thanks a lot for the valuable info.

    • Alyce says:

      Haha, I do think it takes a special level of thrillseeking to want to zip over a lake! Fortunately, there are plenty of non-lake options for ziplining too!!

    This is awesome! I never thought about zip lining before, and I have lived in Georgia my entire life. The most interesting one for me is the Amicalola Zip line. Only because they provide free pictures of your adventure when you send them your email. Other than that, North Georgia Canopy Tours seems like the best bang for your buck. 3 hours of fun that can’t be matched when you are doing nature walks, zip lining over sky bridges, rivers, and rappelling. And it’s all for only 89 dollars! Thanks for this awesome post. Zip lining is definitely on my wish list. Thanks again!

    • Alyce says:

      There is definitely a lot of fun to find in the Georgia mountains! You have picked some of the most thrilling activities and I wish you a very fun trip!!

    Such and interesting website.  I really like the idea but had a few questions.  How long does a zipline ride take (typically)? Also, Are there weight requirements for larger adults?  I have never been to Georgia or ziplining. It does look fun. Great area coverage of different places you can go.  What a great idea.  All the Best, Krista

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Krista, The length of a zipline ride will depend on the length of the cable and a bit on the user… there are a few little adjustments that your guide will point out to help you go faster or slower (depending on your preference). There are weight restrictions that will be specific to each location, but most of the limits seem to top out at around 250 pounds.

    Wow, what a beautiful place to spend ones vacation with his family. I love the view of the Unicoi state park, its a very beautiful sight and I’d love to have the experience of it. Later this year I’d love to visit the Georgia mountain. And thanks for the advice on the kind of clothing to bring along when coming for tour. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Dane, you’re most welcome for the sneak peeks and the clothing advice for having a great zipline adventure and trip to the Georgia mountains!

    Since I and my family would be going on an adventure very soon because of our vacation. I think its high time to get ziplining off my bucket list and what better place to do that than to explore the home of my wife, Georgia. I have heard a lot concerning the great ziplining canopy tours in the country and I’m definitely going to book one for my family and I. Thanks

    This is amazing! I never would’ve thought that children as young as 4 could have their own Kidzip. What fun! And what a brilliant idea. I certainly never experienced anything like it when I was that young. The only exciting thing I did was when I went to a museum when I was already in school. lol

    This will definitely be an experience we’ll be putting in our bucket list. By the way, do you know if any adult goes with the young child? Or do they have to go solo? Just in case my little daredevil gets too scared on the way down (unlikely but you never know).

    • Alyce says:

      There is a requirement for the youngest kids to have an adult chaperone nearby for the KidZip, but it does sound like it’s a great opportunity for smaller kids to get it on the ziplining fun!

  13. Jagi says:

    I have always wanted to zipline. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the items on my bucket list. North Georgia seems like a great place to come and do it. As we are planning a trip next year, maybe that’s where will be headed. I and my two daughters are the adventurous ones in our family, we do the risk-taking things that others in my family are wary of. I can’t wait to get over there and start ziplining

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jagi, That is wonderful to hear! You’ll find a great ziplining option no matter what part of North Georgia you decide to visit… and maybe even a place on site if you decide to stay at Unicoi or Amicalola Falls State Parks! Enjoy your trip!!

    I’ve only tried a zipline once but I was quite nervous – the actual thrill is exciting though, zipping through the wind and trees without a care in the world, although the process of getting all the way up to the initial launch station can be nerve-wrecking, haha.

    These photos and sites you’ve posted really seem like a must-go-to experience for the thrill enthusiast. And it’s nice to know there’re lost of them all throughout georgia.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Mike, I tend to agree with you… the fun of riding on the zipline is such a great adrenaline rush that there is no room for being anything but thrilled. I have been to zipline tours in other parts of Georgia where I was a tad nervous as I climbed up to the launch point… but I’m happy to report that the anxiety was totally worth it and 10 / 10 will do it again!!  🙂
