You get the sensation that something exciting is going to happen from the moment you arrive to the Sky Adventure Park visitor station. The electricity of the guides enthusiasm, the funny looking harness gear one has to slip into and the amazing volcano just in front of you somehow provide the inspiration to do what might be the most exciting thing you have ever done! Yet, the tour starts out nice and easy on the The slow-paced Sky Tram. These open air gondolas soar smoothly through the rainforest, offering up endless views during their mountainous ascent. Accompanied by a bilingual guide, tour takers will have the ability to stop the tram at any point, a feature that allows for magnificent, one-of-a-kind photographs to be captured and tropical birds to be spotted.
Once the top is reached, visitors are invited to explore the observation deck, where they’ll enjoy magnificent views of the Arenal Volcano’s southern face. From here, one can also see Lake Arenal and the rolling hillsides that surround it. Visitors can spend as much time as they please on the observation deck before heading back down.
There are two ways to return to the Sky Tram’s base. You can ride the tram down the same route that you ascended or sign up for a fast-paced zip line tour to the bottom. Those seeking an adrenalin rush would be wise to choose the second option, which will have them flying along a series of secure cables connecting one mountain to another.
There are 8 cables, the longest of which is over 2,000 feet.
Min. Age 8 years
At the tram’s base there is another large observation deck as well as a restaurant. The views from this deck compliment and contrast the one from the mountain’s peak.
