Closed for the season
Welcome to Provo Canyon Adventures
(CLOSED FOR THE SEASON, WE’LL REOPEN APRIL 2020 WEATHER PERMITTING)
Utah’s First & Only Zipline Canopy Tour!
Provo Canyon Adventure’s Zipline is Utah’s premier tree-top canopy zip line tour nestled in the Wasatch Mountains and adjacent to the world famous Provo River. You’ll experience breath taking mountain scenery, wildlife, beautiful river-front landscapes and mountain fresh air. Soar across the tree-tops and fly with the birds as you take in beautiful mountain vistas, stunning views of Mt. Timpanogos and the Provo River.
Part of your outdoor adventure can also include an exhilarating stand-up paddle board river adventure down the Provo River or you could saddle up for a horseback trail ride in the Wasatch National Forest. If you prefer having your horsepower under the hood you can go on one of our guided off-road adventures.
Complimentary Photos Now Included
That’s right! We provide photos of your adventure free of charge! You can now enjoy your zip tour without having to worry about dropping your phone or camera along the way. Note: guests are still welcome to bring their own photo devices if you’d like.
Located just 3 miles from Sundance
Reservations / Cancellation

The cost is $65 per person. Group rates are available for parties of 10 or more people. Call for details 801-960-3113.
Which tour time is the best?
Any time of the day you want to zip is the best time to zip.

Reservations are always recommended as this enables us to provide you with the best possible experience. If you do not have a reservation, we will always do our best to accommodate you based upon our availability.
What if we miss our reservation time?
Unfortunately, we cannot hold tours for late arrivals as it causes a “domino effect” on other tours and an inconvenience to other guests who arrived on time. Therefore, if you are late for your tour, you will not receive a refund and you will not be able to catch up with your tour.

Every participant is required to sign a Liability & Release Waiver before they zip. This waiver is emailed to you with your order confirmation and must be completed online.
Participants under the age of 18 must have a signed waiver by a parent.
Closed-toed shoes are highly recommended, because if a shoe is lost we cannot guarantee that we can find it for you. Sorry!
The zip line adventure is designed for use by participants of average physical condition who are in reasonably good health. There are two mild hikes between platforms with a slight incline. Each participant must be able to complete the hikes. The trails are approximately as challenging as walking up three flights of stairs.
The required participant weight range is 45 to 275 pounds.
The minimum age is 7-years-old.
Each participant must be physically able to control the speed of their travel along the zip lines by applying the brake on the zip line cable. All zip line skills will be taught, prior to your actual adventure, in the “flight school.”
No one under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or impairing legal drugs, will be allowed to participate in the adventure. Provo Canyon Adventures reserves the right to exclude anyone from participation for medical, safety, or other reasons it deems not conducive to a safe zip line adventure.
Please bring any medication that may be immediately necessary to prevent the onset of a serious medical event: asthma inhalers, epi-pens, insulin, etc.

What is the age and weight restrictions?
You must be heavier than 45 lbs. or lighter than 275 lbs. Children must be seven or older.
Why is there a weight limit?
The weight limit is not for the zip lines, because the lines can hold the weight of a school bus. The weight restriction is in effect because it is an insurance requirement.
What factors determine the age/weight requirements?
Weight has a large impact on traveling speeds; lighter people will travel slower and may not make it to the end, and larger people will travel faster and will have to brake more while zipping. Harnesses and cables are rated for large weights, but traveling speed and control can be a big issue for heavier people.
Do I need to be physically fit?
No, as long as you are less than 275 pounds, you are good to go. However, on some platforms there will be stairs and/or hills to climb, so you must evaluate your own ability to climb stairs and walk on uneven terrain.
My child is six-years-old, but he weighs over 45 lbs. Can he zip?
We require a minimum weight of 45 lbs., and children must be seven years of age. This is to ensure they have good motor skills and coordination to manipulate themselves along the zip cable if necessary.

Do you operate in the rain?
Yes, we operate in the rain. However, the course will be closed if there is lightning in the vicinity, and advance notice may not be possible. If we know in advance that we will be closed we will try to notify you ASAP. If your adventure is cancelled due to weather, you may rebook for another time, or we will refund the purchase price of your adventure.
What if there is bad weather?
Zip adventures will run rain or shine. “Bad” weather is determined per individual, not always by the actual weather. Some people do not arrive prepared for a change of temperature or mild precipitation. If your adventure is cancelled due to weather, you may rebook for another time, or we will refund the purchase price.
What if I zip during the winter months?
Please be aware that during the winter months the temperature can be cold. Although we are in a high desert climate, it is not uncommon to hit 50 degrees in December! Zip lining in the winter is still a lot fun if you are prepared for it. We recommend that you wear skiing attire if it is a colder day. The key is to always dress for the weather, it’s really that simple.

Do I need to tip my guide?
Our guides are well-trained and work very hard to ensure your safety on your adventure all while entertaining and informing you about the beautiful surroundings. Tipping your guides according to your satisfaction is greatly appreciated.
How much is the average tip?
A customary tip is 15% to 20% of the full purchase price.
Can I tip my guide if I forgot cash?
You are welcome to give a tip on a credit card either before your adventure when you make your reservation or after your adventure in the Yurt.
Do you have cell phone service?
Yes, in fact the cell phone towers are on the Ranch, so the reception is GREAT!
Where can I find your Rider Waiver?
The online waiver can be found here. Please make sure you’ve read and understand the waiver.
What if I have more questions?
Just send us an email or call us at 801-960-3113 .
Do I need to bring water?
During the hottest months we provide water at the beginning and the end of your adventure; however, if you would like to bring your own you are welcome to.
Can I bring my camera?
You are welcome to bring a camera with you, and we hope you will share any of the fantastic pictures you take with us on social media. Our guides will also be taking photos of you along the way, free of charge. So feel free to leave the camera behind! (i.e., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
What should I wear?
We ask that you wear close-toed shoes and comfortable clothing, but please avoid clothing that is very loose. Long hair will need to be tied back. Skirts are not recommended, as they are not as comfortable while wearing your harness.
Jewelry, cellphones, and wallets are best left locked up in your car, but we have a pouch for your convenience if you want to take it with you. Provo Canyon Adventures is not responsible for property lost, damaged, or stolen during your adventure.
Dress for the forecasted weather. We do operate in the rain, so please be prepared because the canyon is often much cooler than in the valley and you will be outside for up to three hours. We recommend layering your clothes since it is much easier to peel them off if you get hot.
What is the cancellation policy?
Customers will receive a full refund with 72 hours notice of cancellation. Customers will also receive a full refund in case of operator cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. No-shows will be charged the full price. Contact us by phone to cancel or inquire about a cancellation. 801-960-3113

If coming from Orem, drive up Highway 189 towards Heber City. At mile marker 15, there will be a blue Parking sign pointing to a pullout on the right. Turn into this pull out (also marked by a brown “Zipline Canopy Tour” sign). Drive down the private driveway, following the zipline and Bear Canyon Ranch sings. Drive across the bridge and stay left along the river as you drive up the dirt road. There will be a red wagon marking our parking area. Park by the other cars and walk into our Yurt to get checked in!
If coming from Heber City, drive South/West down Highway 189 until you pass mile marker 15. Once the highway joins back together, (you will notice it’s divided for a few miles) make a U-turn at the first available pull out. If you reach the turnoff for Sundance Mountain Resort, you can use that as your turnout point as well. Once headed back North/East up highway 189, look for mile marker 15, then follow the same direction stated above.
