Setting the bar high since 2012, Sky Valley Zip Tours is rated the #1 Outdoor Activity in Blowing Rock on TripAdvisor (March 2019). Experience a canopy tour and zip line adventure like no other! An exhilarating half-mile ATV ride leads you to 10 zip lines, including the famous Big Mama, and over a mile of cable, elevations up to 300 feet, a cliff jump, and 120-foot long swinging bridge. Kids ages 4 & up can zip at Whistle Pig Adventure Park, the High Country's only kid-sized zip line, located on-site at Sky Valley. Cheer kids on as they master 7 zips, a bridge, and 10-foot slide out of the trees, built specifically for them. Ask about birthday parties! After dark on select weekends, zip under the stars with Night Flight at Sky Valley. This 1.5 hour tour covers the first half of the canopy tour course and ends with the cliff jump for a unique, moonlit adventure.

Sky Valley's course is located on 140 acres of pristine environment, providing views of diverse flora and fauna and a beautiful waterfall. Groups are small, with a maximum of 10 zippers, and led by two trained Zip Rangers who will help you get to know your fellow zippers and have an unforgettable experience.
