Activity description

Costa Rica is also known for its world-renowned canopy tours. Imagine flying through the treetops hundreds of meters in the air, with an opportunity to observe the diverse fauna!

There are a number of ways to explore the tree-tops of Monteverde that will provide you unique aerial panoramas of the forest. However, the most popular form is the zip-line canopy; a practice with strong steel cables strung between old and extremely strong trees. You are released through the forest from tree to tree along these lines through a safety harness.

Over the course of your outing you'll use the adrenaline inducing cable systems, the longest is 1030 meters! You'll also try the popular 'tarzan swing', a firmly attached rope hovering over a huge cliff, from where you fall freely and swing.

The best thing about this outing is the unparalleled views of the lush beauty - not many places can boast such scenery. The trip takes about 2.5 hours.

Without a doubt, the most famous canopy tours are in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. This region is located on the Continental Divide of Costa Rica, at an altitude of 1,440 metres, producing a very thick and cold cloud layer. Here, there are more than 500 species of animals and 2,500 species of plants – and you can be sure to find some of them during this adventure.

Offer Description

The canopy tour includes:
- Ziplines ranging between a height of 75 metres to 150 metres.
- Abseil of 30 metres
- Tarzan swing
- Superman, cable of 1 km
- Superman subterraneo, tunnel under the mountain of 175 metres long

It was a great experience and very safe!

Great experience. We'll organized. Small ziplines to start and get used. Perfect experience. One advice: on a hot day, a bit of water would help (we had water, but had to leave everthing at the reception)
