Strap In for the 5 Most Breathtaking Places in the World to Go Ziplining

Are you looking to go ziplining soon? If so, read on to learn about the five most breathtaking places in the world to go ziplining.

Adventuring together is a great way to create relationships and build lasting memories no matter where you go. Ziplining through dramatic scenery is a thrill you’ll want to share.

Even if you’re traveling solo on a spiritual retreat, ziplining provides the thrill of flying (and sometimes falling!) you need to get you out of your comfort zone.

For the most impressive views, zipline in one of these five places on your next trip.

1. California

Soar over exotic animals at the San Diego Zoo. Called Flightline, the sky tour gives you a birds-eye view of the safari exhibit, complete with safari animals like rhinos and giraffes.

Zippers can even pay extra for a camera mounted on their helmet to record a video of their trip through the safari. Take your recorded memories home and watch yourself zoom over a scenic safari over and over again.

2. Puerto Rico

You can argue that the best zipline is in Orocovis, Puerto Rico. This is one of the longest ziplines in the world, a little over 1.5 miles. Instead of hanging in a sitting position, zippers assume a Superman-like pose to ride.

With arms out in front, visitors don’t call this zipline The Monster without cause. You can reach almost 95 miles an hour sailing over ToroVerde Adventure Park, the largest in the Caribbean. Of course, you might want to try another adventurous zipline ride at the park, like La Bestia (The Beast), to get the most out of the gorgeous landscape below.

3. Texas

Planning a trip to the Lone Star State anytime soon? Lake Travis might be enough motivation to get you there. Zipline over perfect views — at night! — over canyons and the lake for a new take on eco-adventure.

The three-hour tour comes with a guide, and they provide you with helmet lights and glow sticks.

When you sign up for the Night Flight, you get a final zip that launches you off a cliff in the moonlight! This is truly one of the most scenic vistas you’ll get from a zipline.

4. Costa Rica

Strap in for a canopy tour at Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. With multiple companies to choose from, spend time zooming through the rainforest near the panoramic, perfectly symmetrical Volcan Arenal.

While the volcano got a new classification in 2010 — it’s no longer considered active — visitors can still see it up close and personal with a zipline tour. You can also zipline at higher elevation in Monteverde, for more spectacular skylines.

5. The Heart of Missouri

Want to feel safer while you’re zipping through the trees? In Missouri, the Branson Zipline at Wolfe Mountain has the added comfort of shoulder straps on the harnesses.

Since you’ll feel extra secure, why not try the courses with a few suspension bridges and a 40-foot free fall? Discover more when you book your trip on their website. The impressive views are definitely worth the trip.

Plan Your Ziplining Trip

While you can’t zip off the Eiffel Tower anymore, California, Puerto Rico, Texas, Costa Rica, and Missouri come in at a close second. These are some of the most breathtaking places in the world to go ziplining.

It’s the perfect adventure, great for team building and family retreats. For more information about traveling adventures, contact us today.
