Hiking the Grand Canyon is certainly an activity that’ll feed your wanderlusting soul, but this year, thrill seekers are in for a desert treat: It’s now possible to experience one of the country’s most beloved natural attractions from 1,000 feet up.

Reported by Travel + Leisure, the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation launched its zip line experience at the beginning of the year at the Hualapai Ranch, and it lets people fly over Grand Canyon West at speeds up to 50 miles per hour.

Whether you decide to soar alone or with a friend side by side, you can either travel at 1,100 feet or ascend higher (and get a steeper ride!) with the 2,100-foot course. Either way, you’ll see some pretty epic views—including the nearby Quartermaster Canyon—during the ride, which starts at $89 per person.

“The zip line at Grand Canyon West gives our guests a unique adrenaline surge that will be one of the longest and most exciting zip lines found anywhere in the world.” —Candida Hunter, chairwoman of the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation Board of Directors

“The zip line at Grand Canyon West gives our guests a unique adrenaline surge that will be one of the longest and most exciting zip lines found anywhere in the world,” Candida Hunter, chairwoman of the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation Board of Directors, said in a statement.

And, as much fun as it is to hike the canyon trails, there’s nothing like the sheer excitement of experiencing a bird’s-eye view—and literally flying like a bird in the process.

Here’s exactly where you should travel in 2018, according to Airbnb. Or, check out Europe’s least-visited country.
