What is Zipline?
Ziplining, called Omega, is a thrilling outdoor adventure involving gliding along a suspended cable or wire while harnessed to a pulley. The setup usually has two points, often at different elevations, with the cable strung tautly between them. Thrill-seekers wear safety equipment such as a harness and helmets to ensure safety. During the zipline experience, participants launch from a higher point, and gravity propels them along the cable, allowing them to soar through the air at high speeds. The breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes add to the excitement of the activity. Ziplining is an adrenaline-pumping experience combining adventure, nature, and the thrill of flight, making it a popular activity for locals and tourists seeking an unforgettable outdoor escapade.

The difference between zip line and rappelling
Zipline, also called omega, is a type of rope-surfing activity that is different from a regular surfing activity, rappelling, in which an obstacle is usually overcome at an angle of 90 degrees (from top to bottom). Here we overcome an obstacle at an angle of approximately 45 degrees, in other words, horizontally.
Other differences between the two: are control, speed, and means in surfing activity. The surfer controls the speed of surfing. On the other hand, he has no control over the ziplining activity. And the entire control is the sole responsibility of the instructor.
The speed in abseiling is relatively low, but in zip-line, the speed is extremely high. This is achieved with the use of different means.
In surfing, friction devices are used, such as an eighth or SBG and similar. In ziplining activity, pulleys are used that run on the rope and allow extremely fast surfing.
The rhythm of the Omega and the speed at which it is determined according to several factors: the type of pulleys, the angle of the zipline, the tension of the rope, and of course, the rate dictated by the guide who controls the system.

What is unique about zipline in the North as a challenging activity?
Ziplining is a challenging activity that is carried out with the help of metal ropes or cables that are melted from one side to the other at an angle and allowed, with the help of the appropriate equipment (harness), to connect and fly from one side to the other, a very fast activity that creates a very strong feeling of Extreme and a burst of adrenaline.
The control of the system is done entirely by the guide, which increases the adrenaline since the surfer goes out to the Omega without any control over the pace while being required to trust the guide completely with zip line rules and regulations in Israel. You can also upgrade the zip line and double the experience by connecting to a harness at the back.
Surfers usually connect to the harness from the front, which gives a greater sense of safety. When connecting from the back, we do not feel the rope’s tension, nor is it visible, which creates another psychological barrier.
Those who are brave are guaranteed to have an excellent extreme experience.
You can see on our website that zipline jumps in Israel with a connection at the back.
