Zip line canopy tours are really fun, and the Blue Ridge Mountains have some of the fastest and most thrilling in the nation. Some zip line tours offer special winter rates, along with spectacular winter views of the mountains and valleys below. Look over the list of zip line canopy tours here. Hot air balloon rides are also available year round, and because balloons travel with the wind, you’ll only need a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves to enjoy your flight. Our list of aviators is located here.
