The sky tram, skywalk, and sky trek tour in Monteverde is a mixture of the magic of the cloud forest, its natural history and life secrets, and the indescribable sensation that adventure brings to the body and mind.
This tour is done in the Sky Adventures Park in Monteverde. A private reserve in the cloud forests, a family company that started with the hanging bridges and ziplining more than twenty years ago. And they have been quite successful in driving sustainable and safe adventures.
This combination of experiences is ideal for families, photographers, nature lovers, and birders with a taste for adventure.
When you arrive in the Sky Adventures Monteverde Park and before the tour, you will get equipped with the security and ziplining gear, and a tour guide will provide all instructions related to safety and proper ways to position your body.
The first cable is short in distance and height; it is a way to test the gear and get to the platform where you get on board to the sky tram gondolas.
The Sky Tram mounts at a stunning cloud forest hill and allows stopping on the way to enjoy wildlife sightings, or as the tour guide is talking about the natural history, he or she may want to show you a particular plant or vine and talk about it.
Without any stop, the duration of the tram is 20 minutes before getting to the summit platform.
At this point, there are two observation towers from where you can see the Pacific Coast and the other one to see the Caribbean and Northern Plains stretching to the sea.
And then, you will start the Sky Trek.

The Sky Trek tour regularly takes around 2 hours. The maximum weight permitted for Sky Trek is 217 lbs.
An excellent chance to experience the cloud forest at a slow pace, allowing the cloud forest to show itself before your eyes.
