Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking through mountains, paddling down rivers, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of nature with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
$44 for a three-hour Adventure zipline tour for one (an $89 value)
$200 for a one-night stay package for up to five (up to a $484 total value)
- One-night stay in a teepee equipped with one queen bed and a twin/full bunk bed, including linens (up to a $139 value)
- Two-hour Sky Bridge zipline tour (a $69 value/person)
Guides begin every tour by training visitors in safety and braking techniques before they’re strapped in and ready to whiz through the canopy. The Sky Bridge Tour progresses over nine ziplines, two bridges, and two nature walks before ending with a 695-foot, top-speed journey over Hilltop Pond. The Adventure Tour adds a rappelling section and four more ziplines that traverse three ponds and two sections of the North Oconee River at higher speeds. All courses are designed to progress in steepness gradually, helping build confidence and acclimate even heights-shy zippers to the treetops. All the while, the certified, eco-trained guides open up the history-rich forests around them with information on the wildlife and native cultures.
North Georgia Canopy Tours
In 2001, the first of many ziplines began to sprout from the grounds surrounding the Old Mill Farm. The cows would inspect the strange contraptions quizzically, but they soon grew comfortable with the droves of smiling guests whooshing overhead. Today, spread across more than 100 acres near the North Oconee River in Lula, Georgia, North Georgia Canopy Tours lead groups on high-flying adventures. Complete with commemorative photo packages, the tours entertain guests with serene views and exhilarating activities. The ziplines reach up to 70 feet off the ground and extend as far as 850 feet, allowing zipliners to catch glimpses of flying squirrels migrating south in V formation.
Staff also welcome visitors to stay overnight in 15 campsites and several authentic Native-American teepees equipped with amenities such as electricity and air conditioning. The walls of each teepee bear custom-painted Cherokee symbols representative of the seven Cherokee Clans, for which North Georgia Canopy Tours' seven campgrounds are named.
