Sky Tram and Sky Walk Monteverde

Get above Monteverde’s cloud forest to see the busiest part of this environment – the canopy. 90 percent of the plants and animals in the Monteverde cloud forest live in the canopy. When you’re at this elevation, you can come face-to-face with the monkeys and birds. This tour has two distinct sections – your tour will include a walk over trails and suspension bridges, as well as a ride in a cable car.

Experience Highlights

Aerial Tram
Nature Walk
Suspension Bridges

On your 1.5-mile (2.5-km) walk you’ll cross a total of 6 bridges. Each of these bridges provides an unobstructed view of the Monteverde canopy. You’ll be surrounded by dense greenery and musical birdcalls. Bring binoculars and keep an eye out for the quetzal – one of the most highly sought specimens by bird watchers.

You’ll also get to climb aboard a sky tram, and float over the cloud forest on a ride that offers a spectacular opportunity for taking photographs. This ride ascends 570 feet (175 m). There is plenty of room for you to get up and look out over the rail of your sturdy cable car. You can also request that the cable car pause so you can get a good look at any animals you may spot along the way.

A very leisurely, easy walk that can be enjoyed by all. Our guide was extremely personable and interesting. It is a pleasure to be with people who enjoy their jobs. The hanging bridges were a highlight of our trip as it gave us a beautiful way to view the cloud forest and all it's beauty.
