Take Flight on Bretton Woods, NH Canopy Tours
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 and through 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, coated cables to make for a quiet, more natural flight through the trees, and platforms and bridges 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.
