Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary, LLC announced today that it has acquired longtime Juneau zip line operator, Alaska Zipline Adventures. Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary already owns and operates several other tours, including three zip line courses through its company, Alaska Canopy Adventures.

There are no major changes planned for Alaska Zipline Adventures this upcoming summer season. Amenities including its tree house platforms, axe-throwing experience and relaxing lodge, will continue to be offered.

“This change in ownership will not affect the zip line experience. All of the features that customers know and love will still be available,” said Brien Salazar, co-founder of the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary and CEO/president of Taquan Air.
