The Canopy Tour
Selvatura's outstanding canopy tour has the longest cables in Costa Rica and is the only one truly immersed in virgin forest. The tour is made up of 15 cables and 18 viewing platforms, traversing over two miles of forest and combining the thrill of the zip line with a unique perspective of the tree top canopy.
After an initial introduction to the safety equipment, visitors are fitted with the highest quality harnesses by professional guides. Soon after, riders will begin their flight through the forest.
For the real adrenaline junkies, the Selvatura Canopy Tour includes an optional
Tarzan Swing, a high security rope swing that launches you right into the forest for the ultimate Costa Rican adventure.
Visitors are advised to wear long pants, closed-toed shoes and to bring rain gear just in case.
The tour lasts between 2 and 2.5 hours. It is suitable for anyone over the age of 4, but for safety reasons, a weight restriction of 280lbs and maximum waist width of 120cm apply.
Treetop Suspension Bridges
The Tree Top walkway is the ideal cloud forest experience for those who wish to explore the beauty of the canopy at their own pace and appreciate the incredible array of vegetation and exotic bird life that the region has to offer.
The walkway consists of 8 suspension bridges connected by trails covering 1.9 miles (3km). The bridges vary from 150ft (50m) to 500ft (170m) in length and are suspended at heights ranging from 36ft (12m) to 180ft (60m). At almost 5ft (1.5m) wide, the bridge system is the widest and sturdiest in Costa Rica.
Visitors have the option of taking a self-guided treetop tour, or of joining a guided Natural History Tour (at an additional cost). All guides are bilingual and professionally trained. Visitors will learn about the mammals, birds and plant life - particularly bromeliads, epiphytes and ferns – living in this unique eco-system, as well as hearing some of the fascinating cultural history of the region.
Guided tours can be arranged for large groups by prior reservation only.
The hanging bridges can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages and physical conditions. Tours last up to 2 hours. Again, it is recommended that visitors bring long pants, suitable shoes and waterproof jackets.
