Sky Tram and Sky Trek Monteverde

Monteverde

There are many canopy tours in Costa Rica but Sky trek operates on a larger scale and in harmony amidst the pristine primary cloud forest. Sky Trek has some of the longest cables in the country, well-maintained trails throughout the cloud forest, suspension bridges and one of the safest harnessing and pulley systems that enable people of all ages safely fly across the jungle!

Sky Trek

This famous canopy tour consists of 9 zip line cables with a combined length of 1.8 miles (3 km) and range in distances between 131 feet (40 m) and 435 feet (770 m) and heights that range between 65 to 98 feet (20 to 30 m). Sky Trek is also a great opportunity to have panoramic views at two observation towers that offer views to the Pacific on a clear day it is also possible to see the northern lowlands that stretch all the way to the Caribbean. The Sky Trek tour generally takes about 2 hours. Maximum weight allowed for Sky Trek is 225 lbs.

Sky Tram

The Sky Tram ascends along a beautiful cloud forest ridge and allows for stops along the way to observe plant and animal life and learn from an experienced guide. The duration of the tram takes about 20 minutes before arriving at an observatory platform. Those continuing on to the Sky Trek will descend via the cables back to the central office. If you are not continuing on to the Sky Trek cables you will return via the Tram. This activity is required for those who wish to do the Sky Trek.
