New Zip Line Tour Package at Hotel Villa Portofino

THRILLS AWAIT GUESTS TAKING HOTEL VILLA PORTOFINO’S
NEW ZIP LINE ECO TOUR PACKAGE


AVALON, Catalina Island, Calif. – Hotel Villa Portofino guests will be richly rewarded with elegant hotel accommodations and the hotel’s new Zip Line Eco Tour package when they book it online at www.HotelVillaPortofino.com.  The package includes accommodations at Hotel Villa Portofino beginning at $228.00 per person based on double occupancy.  It also offers transportation aboard the Catalina Express from San Pedro, Long Beach or Dana Point, roundtrip taxi transfers, Continental breakfast, and the Zip Line Eco Tour. The zip line tour, normally $92.50 per person, is included in Hotel Villa Portofino’s Zip Line Eco Tour package.  Room upgrades and extra nights are available for an additional discounted rate.  Weekend, holiday and summer rates are higher.

The Zip Line Eco Tour is a thrilling ride and an odyssey of a lifetime.  Neither Los Angeles nor Orange County has Zip Line tours, making Catalina Island unique territory.  Dropping from 500 feet to 60 feet above sea level, the three-quarters-of-a-mile tour runs over five consecutive zip lines at heights of 300 feet above the canyon and at speeds passing 45 mph.  The largest of the five Zip Lines is 1,100 lineal feet long. 

The tour is – altogether -- three-quarters-of–a-mile in length, beginning at Hog’s Back gate high in the hills overlooking Avalon and descending through Descanso Canyon.  Passengers pause at several points called eco-stations to hear hosts tell about interesting aspects of Catalina Island, its wildlife, and history.

Catalina tile, now a collectors item, was originally produced from mud on the island from 1927 - 1937.
