Why Choose Us?

There are probably a number of good reasons not to work with ArborTrek Canopy Adventures. If you are a proclaimed do-it yourselfer or are looking to run your own business, we can recommend an excellent zip line canopy tour builder. On the other hand, if you have a well located tract of land or tourist operation, consider the following:

1. We’re Passionate People

Here at ArborTrek, we are passionate about adventure, zip lines, fitness, and business. We love what we do and it shows in how we serve our customers, how we work with the environment, and how we run our business.

2. Our Experience

Our management team and corporate partners have years of experience growing businesses inside and out of the adventure field. Our principals and partners have helped to design, build, and grow many of the most popular canopy tours and adventure parks in North America and are ready for a new challenge… growing the ArborTrek!

3. More Customers

Depending on location and proximity to a tourist destination or urban area, ArborTrek tours will draw between 15,000 and 30,000 customers per year after the first year. Our market studies show that tours will regularly draw guests from as far a 4.5 to 5.0 hours drive. By establishing a chain of tours, we seek to draw and attract customers to a brand they can trust, increasing repeat business and market draw.

5. More than Amusement

ArborTrek tours are more than pure amusement. They are designed to help customers escape the rush of everyday, experience nature, bond with other members in their group, and step outside of their comfort zones. At the end of a tour, it’s not enough for us that a customer simply enjoyed the tour and wants to come back; we want them to feel connected and to leave having learned more about themselves, their group, and the world around them.

6. Change is coming? We’re prepared

Since 2005, the canopy tour market in the United States and Canada has grown at incredible rates. With the boom has come new technologies, new hardware, and new challenges. While largely unregulated in North America, change is coming. ArborTrek’s management team is abreast of these changes and has been working hard to develop new systems that better manage risk, improve the customer experience, promote good practices, and more effectively manage operations.

7. Exquisite Design

Each build is a unique creation. Whether designing a canopy tour in trees or an adventure course in a city park, we believe that quality of craftsmanship and design enhances the user experience and creates value.

8. It Makes Good Business Sense

Plain and simple, professional management makes good business sense. Through economy of scale and experience, we are able to provide systems for reservations, operations, staff development, marketing, maintenance, and management that are unavailable to single business and that take significant time to develop. Our systems reduce risk, improve the user experience, and put the hard work in our hands, so that you can focus on your core business or just relax.
