EMBRACE THE ADVENTURE
What is a zip-line or canopy?
A zip-line (also known as a flying fox, foefie slide, zip wire, aerial runway) consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to traverse from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable, by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley.
Who can try the zip line?
The minimum age for the Sacred Valley Zip-Line is 6 years old. We reserve the right to admission to determine whether people are suitable for the zip line or not.
What kind of equipement is used?
A pelvic harness, helmet, gloves and a zip-line kit, (pulley, 3 carabiners, and lanyard) and via ferrata lanyard. All our equipment is certified CE and it is specially made for this activity.
All paths between lines are equipped with via ferrata system. The lines were extended, in a way, that people does not need any break system. The person lose velocity when she or he is getting closer to the end of the line.
All our guides are trained periodically in vertical rope rescue and FirstAid.
What you need to bring?
Use light clothing and comfortable shoes (tennis, light hiking boots, etc.. No sandals). Use pants rather than shorts. Note that as you go upper the weather will be colder and windy, you can carry extra clothing in a small backpack. Bring at least 1 lt. of water. You can bring your empty bottle, we do have purified water at our base so you can refill it at the beginning and at the end of the activity.
