Navitat is an experienced company; an industry leader whose sole focus is tree-based adventure. Enjoy the ride. At Navitat, you’re in great hands.
Navitat opened its Asheville, North Carolina, location in 2010 with our original tree-based canopy adventure, the Treetop Tour. In 2014, we added a second tour to our Asheville location, an unprecedented zipline tour, the Mountaintop Tour. In July 2015, Navitat opened a totally unique tree-based adventure park at Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
With the goal of creating and growing an exceptional brand of tree-based adventure experiences, the Navitat story is just beginning. What will we do next?
We believe that experiencing trees in unique and engaging ways can ultimately thrill, educate and inspire our guests. Our partners include industry experts committed to setting the highest standards for safety and guest experience. Our employees have a passion for people, the special places we call home, and the trees we invite you to explore with us.
We care about what we do. And what we “do” is all focused on trees. We build in trees, we play in trees, we explore trees in fun and unique ways. And so, naturally, we believe we ought to care for them—deeply. And we do.
From the start, Navitat set out to become the very definition of environmental stewardship within our industry. We work to create a culture that is both knowledgeable and passionate about the places we get to call home, and in doing so, we find that conservation becomes a natural focus.
We hire staff that have a personal passion for the outdoors. Many have educational backgrounds that support our efforts, and all of our staff benefit from initial and on-going environmental education and training as a part of their employment with Navitat.
In addition to focusing on staff selection and development, we also give very specific attention to the places we’re lucky to call home. Ultimately, our goal is to leave the land better than we found it. To accomplish this, we have invested in creating, implementing, and growing extensive site management plans that include removal of invasive and exotic plants and treating trees affected by exotic invasive species.
Navitat’s investment in training and developing our staff to be concerned environmental educators and stewards – combined with our extensive site management plans – is a level of commitment you won’t find at any other zipline company. We’re very proud of this distinction and, ultimately, we believe it makes all the difference in the world—in ways that really count!
