Just outside of San Antonio is the sleepy town of Spicewood, TX, which has a reported population of under 8,000 people. While Spicewood may not have a lot going on in terms of what’s happening around town, it just so happens to be the location of one of the most fun activities in the greater San Antonio area – Cypress Valley Canopy Tours.
What is a canopy tour?
A canopy tour is a tour of the treetops via zipline, and nowhere does it better than Cypress Valley canopy tours. Here, you’ll experiencing a thrilling ride as you soar through the sky and come so close to the tree tops you can nearly reach out and touch them. Not only is this an adrenaline rush, but it’s also quite the ecological experience, too. In fact, some of the tree tops are over 100 ft. tall.
Explore the Treetops at Night
If you really want to do something adventurous, you should opt for one of the canopy tours in the evening hours. During a nighttime ziplining adventure, the treetops will be decorated with paper lanterns and twinkling lights, providing just the right amount of light for seeing – not to mention romancing. You’ll also get some neon bracelets and necklaces to help you see and be seen. A nighttime tour is the way to go for someone who’s really looking for something out of the ordinary to do.
Sleep in a Treehouse
Yep, you read that correctly – at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours, you have the option of spending the night in a treehouse. These treehouses are literally in the trees, and very far off the ground – certainly not a cozy spot of choice for a person with a fear of heights. The LoftHaven treehouse is a treehouse that is as romantic as it is cozy. This treehouse is a bedroom that’s been built around an ancient cypress tree, and is complete with canopy bed, hammock, wicker chairs, and wrap-around porch. This really is one of the most romantic places that you could possibly spend an evening. Oh, and did we mention that the treehouse is connected to a bathhouse that has a waterfall filled tubbed?
The second treehouse is equally as neat, and is designed for a family or larger group. The Nest, as it’s called, offers two bedrooms, a lounge, a kitchenette, a dining room, and an outside shower and private bath.
Buy an Adventure Package
If you want to really take advantage of all the Cypress Valley Canopy Tours has to offer, you should consider purchasing one of their adventure packages.
