Zip-lining in Antigua and Barbuda

Zip-lining

Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tours. Release your inner Tarzan at Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tours. You should be in fairly good condition for the ropes challenges, which require upper-body strength and stamina; there are height and weight restrictions. But anyone (vertigo or acrophobia sufferers, beware) can navigate the intentionally rickety "Indiana Jones–inspired" suspension bridges, then fly (in secure harnesses) 200-300 feet above a rain-forest-filled valley from one towering turpentine tree to the next on lines with names like "Screamer" and "Leap of Faith." There are 21 stations, as well as a bar–café and interpretive signage. First-timers, fear not: the "rangers" are affable, amusing, and accomplished. Admission varies slightly, but is usually $85 and up. It's open Monday–Saturday from 8 to 6, with two scheduled tours at 9 and 11 (other times by appointment). Fig Tree Dr., Wallings. 268/562–6363. www.antiguarainforest.com.
