Soar High Over Lake Lanier with Canopy Tours

While the lake is what draws most of our guests to Lanier Islands, we’ve got plenty of blue skies, natural beauty and exciting distractions to keep them here! What if you could spend a day tiptoeing through the treetops, soaring above the shoreline and zipping from one beautiful destination to the next?  That’s exactly what you’ll do when you book an adventure with our partners at Lake Lanier Canopy Tours – who are now celebrating their 7th YEAR AT THE ISLANDS!


Showcasing seven different and distinctive canopy tours ranging in level of physicality and time investment, each tour is professionally designed, engineered, installed and maintained to not only exceed every minimum standard, but also exceed expectations. Led by guides who make each tour as engaging and exciting as possible, these eco-adventure-based experiences are ideal for people from all walks of life* and all levels of endurance.



Our most popular canopy tour, the Legacy showcases two sky bridges and seven zip lines – two of which soar right over Lake Lanier. A unique way to experience our picturesque landscape, the Legacy Tour is ideal for families or groups of friends who have at least two hours to devote to the journey.



Considered “the best of the best” and requiring 3 to 3.5 hours to complete, the lakeside tour consists of 3 sky bridges, 12 zip lines and 120 spiral stair steps. The first 7 zip lines features beautiful views of Lake Lanier as it zips you around a cove inlet and OVER Lake Lanier. The remaining zip lines include a gorgeous 1,000 ft. zip adjacent to Cocktail Cove, our dual 1,500 ft. (that’s the length of 5 football fields!!) racing zip lines where you can race your friend side by side and more!



Probably our most physically demanding and adventurous course, the PineIsle Tour comprises beautiful views, a 250 ft. Sky Bridge overlooking Cocktail Cove, 200 stairs to climb throughout the tour, and 7 Zip Lines – each longer, higher and faster than those found on the Legacy Tour, including our famous “Bouncy Tigger Line” and 1,500 ft. dual racing zip lines.



When you’re all about adventure, but don’t have several hours to invest, the Express Canopy Tour is likely the best option for you! Since it DOES NOT OPERATE DAILY, we require at least 24 hours notice and a reservation. The tour consists of 1 sky bridge and 4 beginner zip lines – making it a great option for a birthday party.


Other tours include the Legacy Plus Tour – which adds two additional zip lines and an extra half hour to the Legacy Tour, as well as the Legacy Nights and Full Moon Tours – both of which incorporate the elements of moonlight, headlamps and starry skies for stargazing.
