The Bretton Woods Canopy Tour is a unique zip line canopy tour in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Located just 30 miles from the Royalty Inn, this thrilling adventure will give you a bird’s eye view of scenic Rosebrook Canyon. The 2 to 3 1/2 hour tour consists of nine cable zip lines and two adventure sky bridges suspended 50 feet above the forest floor. Each zip line varies in length, with a maximum span of 830 feet and 165 feet above the ground. The final thrill consists of Williwaw Racing Zip, a dual zip line cable so you can race your friends or family members to the finish line! (Williwaw Racing Zip is open seasonally.)
The tour begins in the Bretton Woods Base Lodge on Rt. 302 where you will meet your qualified guides who will be accompanying you during the entire trip. You will have detailed ground school orientation to discuss safety and equipment procedures. After being outfitted in harnesses and helmets, you will be transported up the mountain for the start of the tour.
The first zip lines are located in Rosebrook Canyon. During the time between zips, your knowledgeable guides will point out interesting facts about the native New England flora and fauna. You will be educated in local geology and the long cultural history of New Hampshire’s White Mountains region. Connecting many of the canopy tour zip lines are scenic nature trails that bring you back down onto the forest floor to gather your wits as well as to observe the various plant species and to listen for and spot native song birds.
