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.

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.

Excellent guides was very knowledgable, we learned so much and saw a lot of cool wildlife
Great time. Saw many monkeys and breathtaking views. Holwer monkeys, many birds including the famous quetzal (seriously) and many trees, plants and other insects and birds. Was a great time. Bit afraid of heights myself and still managed to get through. The sky tram was amazing, especially the view at the very top. Highly advise climbing the lookout tower at the summit.
Toby was an excellent guide. He was full of information and he coupled it with a wonderful sense of humor. I had some doubts about the bridges before we crossed them but it turned out to be a good experience and the views from the bridges were beautiful.
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. The Butterfly garden of Selvatura is one of the largest in the Americas, a real treat for nature lovers. The hummingbird garden is a serene place to sit down and take a break and observe colorful and very active hummingbirds.
