Where to zipline in Ontario?

Ziplines. Extreme ziplines. You’ve googled them and can’t decide which is the most extreme or the most fun! So, you want to go extreme ziplining in Ontario and don't know where to start? Did you know that ONE AXE Pursuits had the FIRST zipline program in Ontario? Over twenty years ago, ONE AXE Pursuits developed the Zipline Extreme program to be unique and something totally different from all other ziplines and a great place to zipline in Ontario, Canada. At the time, ziplines were not ubiquitous. ONE AXE Pursuits was the first company in Ontario to offer ziplining for recreation (technically a tyrolean traverse which is used in rescue scenarios). And today, they still have the most unique zipline! And now the Zipline Extreme in Elora has been awarded one of the TOP 10 MOST UNIQUE PROGRAMS ON TRIP ADVISOR!

Why is the ONE AXE Pursuits zipline the most unique in Ontario? Maybe even most unique zipline in Canada? This zipline needs to be added to your bucket list because you not only zipline over a 200ft gorge, but you then rappel OFF the zipline from mid-line into the river below. Then, you finish your day with face-first ziplining. Quite a bit of training is involved but you do not need any previous experience.

Not all ziplines are equal. Everyone seems to have done one before somewhere. But if you are looking for an experience and not just a quick ride, zipline extreme with rappelling will cater to people who are looking for an experience to savour. Definitely more of the “slow food” of ziplining instead of the fast food version. Zipline extreme is a real experience and Elora is where you want to go to experience the zipline in Ontario.

The Zipline Extreme program is different from others. It isn’t the tree-to-tree type you get in Costa Rica nor is it the steel cable sort that goes so fast you can’t breathe. This zipline teaches a skill that can be used even in the ropes and rigging industry. The instructors teach participants step-by-step how to rappel down the cliff independently. You spend the morning becoming confident in rappelling before we let you jump off the cliff on a zipline and rappel yourself down 80ft into the water. Then finish the day with some face-first ziplining if you dare.

This Zipline Extreme with rappelling is a special type of adventure. It is one to savour. To enjoy the day outdoors, learn something, meet new people, listening to the expedition stories of the instructors and other participants. Zipline extreme is more slow paced. More like the fine dining of outdoor adventure. Are you ready to try something unique?
