Where are we going today?

If you have ever wondered what it's like to swing through the treetops like Tarzan, rule the forest like those mighty gorillas, or clamber through the trees like a cheeky chimp, then you should keep reading because we're going to tell you all about Virginia Canopy Tours!

Virginia Canopy Tours will let you explore the Shenandoah in the best way possible - on a super cool zip line, which for part of the enduing the challenging yet fun canopy tours! 

Get ready for 3 hours of adventure, because the canopy tour itself starts you off with your ground school training. This is just to make sure you understand all the safety precautions, and give you peace of mind that you're super safe!

Then, the fun begins! There are UTV trail rides, as well as 8 fun zip lines which take you through the hardwood forest - at speeds that can get up to 40 mph! You will be about 90 feet above the forest floor so if you look down you're very brave! (but you'll be attached to two steel cables, so you will also be perfectly fine)

With a sky bridge to get across, as well as an air stair bridge, and two nature walks, and then that final rappel which certainly will get that heart pumping!

The whole time you will be accompanied by two certified and trained guides, so you will be in good hands. 

The fun doesn't end there though! After you have completed this super fun course, there is wading and floating to be had inside the Shenandoah River State Park, as well as lovely picnic shelters to relax and enjoy that food!

Fun, fun, fun! The best word I can think to describe our experience zipping through the trees with VA Canopy Tours is just plain old "fun". Ziplining is by far not the most exciting activity I've participated in and I was a little skeptical that it would be all that entertaining. Then,enter our guide Becky. She was awesome hilarious! She pulled out some of the most ridiculous questions and jokes to keep us laughing and engaged the entire 3 hrs. I'm writing this review simply to give her credit for keeping us well entertained during all the waiting that we had to do (you're in a large grp and only one person can be on the zipline at a time). She also taught us a ton of little factiods (she used to teach a nature course to kids) - bonus points in my book. Last, but not least, she showed us how to bang out some pretty solid moves in our harnesses. Our other guide had laryngitis, but she tried as best her voice could handle to talk us up and make us feel welcome. All in all, it was a great experience with a fun guide that I would recommend to anybody.
