ARBORTREK CANOPY ADVENTURES AT SMUGGLERS’ NOTCH

We invite you to join us in the trees for a zip-line eco-adventure like no other. Escape from the everyday rush and come soar through the wilds of the Green Mountains of Northern Vermont at Smugglers’ Notch Resort.

Traverse high above an ever-babbling mountain stream and spend time among centuries old hemlocks, mature sugar maples and paper birch on Vermont’s First World-Class Zipline Canopy Tour.

Designed to educate, entertain, and inspire the zip line canopy tour consists of a series of zip lines through dense mountain forest, suspension bridges, and rappels. Travelling in small groups, each tour is accompanied by two guides familiar with the local ecology and natural history who are prepared to deliver an unforgettable experience.

So whether you‘re 9 or 90; a thrill seeker, nature lover, or both; we’re certain the canopy tour will be an experience you’ll share and recount for years to come. Bring yourself, your family, your friends, your church group, and your work group… but remember, while the Canopy Tour is open year round, advance reservations are required.
