Now is the time to take flight. Unfold your wings and soar through the treetops on Mt. Washington's newest adventure, the Eagle's Flight ZipTour! Enjoy the rush of freedom as you fly down the face of the mountain reaching speeds up to 100 kph. 

Each ZipTour is led by a team of highly trained and knowledgeable tour guides. The tour starts indoors in our Gear Up Zone, proceeds to the Demo Line for an introduction to the equipment, then up the chairlift to the peak of the mountain. A face mask is required for instance when Guides and guests cannot effectively social distance. The group then descends down four unique zipline spans, each with two cables side by side, ultimately landing on the roof of the Alpine Lodge. 

Please pack a face mask and dress appropriately for current mountain conditions. Note that the tour can take up to 3 hours.
We encourage booking at least 48 hours in advance
Some height and weight restrictions apply.
