One Axe Pursuits, founded by mountaineer Frederick Schuett in 2001, sends adventurers of all skill levels soaring across Elora Gorge on a 200-foot zipline affording thrills and majestic views. The transformation from human to flying whipped-cream pie commences with a morning of instruction led by an experienced staff of mountain climbers, movie-stunt workers, and retired window washers. Next, zipliners set off from the ledge of an 80-foot cliff and zoom safely across the gorge, taking in thrilling, bird's-eye views of scenic surroundings from the safety of a secure zipline. One Axe permits two flights, after which guests can continue to soak up the natural beauty from nearby Lover's Leap lookout point or commune with dust bunnies in their natural habitat.

One Axe Pursuits

Adventurist Frederick Schuett launched One Axe Pursuits in 2001 to use outdoor adventure as a vehicle to promote active lifestyles. He sliced the company into three divisions: recreational programs, corporate team building, and filmmaking. The outdoor-adventure company specializes in recreational programs that send clients zip-lining over the Elora gorge, climbing up frozen waterfalls, and rappelling down limestone cliffs. The corporate team-building division helps create cohesiveness among groups, and film-industry services—such as stunt work and training—keep movie stars and the cardboard cut-outs they use as stunt doubles safe and intact.

Customer Reviews

The guy who checked us in gave us a hard time about the groupon, but the rest of the staff were great! It was a good beginner zipline!

It was an amazing experience that I got to share with my three kids, ages 10, 9 & 4, and some good friends. The staff was great and I will definitely do it again!!!

Staff were kind, tolerate and knowledgable. I felt safe and enjoyed my day immensely. I would recommend the website be clearer on what the Groupon outing is like.
