A Five-Star Experience

Travelers look out the window on one of the Durango, CO trains.When you come Soaring with your family, you are in for a day of full-service, five-star fun. Our extensive course, which is the world’s longest zip line course, takes you rushing through the canopy of an old growth ponderosa pine forest. You experience lines 100 feet off the ground, 10 spans that traverse the Animas River, and 17 other exciting zip lines for a total of over one and a half miles of cable. But more than just rushing through the air on a steel cable, you will experience an entire day of pampering provided by our exceptional staff. Your day begins with a ride on the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in the Tall Timber first class train cars. This old mining locomotive traverses through the Animas River canyon, running through wide meadows and craggy cliffs. Our favorite section of track is the highline- riding over 400 feet above the river on a cliff face, you’ll feel like you’re back in the 1800s! And with the view from the comfort of our deluxe cars, there’s no better seat in the house. Full of plush leather seats and a personal train attendant to cater to your needs, the Legacy and Legend train cars will transport you to Soaring in style.

Our four-course gourmet lunch in the trees is also a five-star affair.DSC_0265 Situated on a suspended steel platform overlooking the Animas River, lunch is made fresh every day by our team of expert chefs. Their diverse cooking backgrounds and a flair for the unexpected makes lunch an exciting and spectacular affair. With unique choices such as our Mango Curry Chicken Salad and the Pineapple Sandwich to classic favorites like the Pulled Pork Sandwich, there is something for everyone to enjoy. In addition to spectacular flavors, lunch is accompanied by astounding views. The lunch platform is our largest and most impressive tree-bound structure, held up by four trees and an elaborate cable system. Just like the rest of our platforms, this structure makes use of our patented tree-hugging system which never punctures or harms any of our trees. This means we can enjoy a true canopy experience while maintaining a healthy forest. From start to finish, your day at Soaring is comprised of the the best service there is to offer. If you are looking for a day of pampered adventure, then look no further. Take a day for YOU and come Soaring!
