Take Flight on Bretton Woods, NH Canopy Tours

Please Note: The Bretton Woods Canopy Tour will be closed for seasonal maintenance beginning Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 and reopening for the weekend of April 27th & 28th, 2019. This activity will then be available full time starting May 4th, 2019. 
Any groups of more than 8 people wishing to book the Canopy Tour during this time may call the Canopy Tour Desk at 603-278-3335 for details.

Situated on the slopes of Bretton Woods at New England’s Mount Washington Resort, our 3-hour canopy tour takes nature lovers and thrill-seekers across a series of tree-top zip lines, sky bridges and a network of platforms high in the ancient hemlocks.

Whether spending a summertime vacation at our resort or simply passing through the community, travelers are invited to soar with our friendly guides. Our unique canopy tour in New Hampshire features a dual-cable construction where you slide below two separate cables instead of just one. Our platforms and bridges are milled from locally harvested wood sources – keeping with our commitment to environmentally sustainable programs.

Once on the zip line tour, our adventure guides describe the native flora and fauna in addition to discussing the surrounding area, its natural history and White Mountain lore. Each pair of guides may accommodate up to eight participants.

  • 9 zip lines ranging from 120 to 830 feet long
  • 2 sky bridges
  • 3 rappels
  • 16 tree platforms ranging from 10 to 70 feet high
  • Zip lines up to 165 feet off of the forest floor
  • 30 mph zip speeds
  • 1,000 foot descent
  • 2 guides per group of up to 8 participants
