Great things begin with a dream

Owner Darrel Bossert flying

Owner Darrel Bossert’s dream of helping people to fly became a reality in 2008 when he first opened the gates to Alternative Adventures Zip Line and Eco Campground. An accomplished, hang glider pilot, Darrel has been flying and teaching for over 30 years. But his dream took root in his childhood.

As a kid, Darrel wasn’t the gutsy flyer and entrepreneur he became. In fact, he took up hang-gliding as a means to overcome his fear of heights. Growing up in Jasper National Park, seemingly benign activities like riding a chairlift or walking to the edge of a waterfall terrified him. His personal understanding of what it takes to overcome a deep seated fear helped fuel his desire to help others achieve success by overcoming their limitations.

This understanding is what’s behind Alternative Adventure’s unique zip line. Designed to accommodate a wide variety of thrill tolerances, at Alternative Adventures zip line we can coach the most timid through their first-ever flight, or introduce an adventurous visitor to super-hero-like flying.

Why go zip lining?

Zip lines help you go beyond your personal limitations in a controlled, safe environment.

Our unique 1200 feet (366 metre) zip line is more than just a ride. It’s a way to test your limitations and experience the sensations and thrills that are usually only available to those who have invested years in developing enough skills to pursue extreme sports in relative safety – we’re talking free-falling, pulling “G”s, and soaring through the air like your favourite super-hero.

Are ready to test your limits?

We’re open from May to October and can accommodate any age. Our adventures range from a simple introductory flight, to tandem flights, flight packages and half- to full-day activities. If you’re ready for an alternative adventure in the Canadian Rockies, please contact us.
