Tour description provided by Viator

Zipline Extreme experience in Elora is truly unique. Start the day with learning the skill of rappelling (also known as abseiling) side-by-side with an instructor. After a morning of rappelling training, you will graduate to zipline across the 200ft gorge and then rappel yourself 80ft into the river below. This is a skill that needs the day to be learned and perfected. Finish your day with some face-first ziplines.

Then proceed to cross the David Street Bridge across the Irvine River. Meet at Victoria Park at 103 Victoria Crescent, Elora by the stairs that go down into the Gorge.
