Private Sky Tram, Trek & Walk Costa-Rica Activities

Overview

Sky Trek:
For the ultimate adrenaline rush, try Sky Trek. You will ride an open-air gondola from the ground tothe heights where you’ll be dropped off at an observation deck for fantastic views of the volcano and land below. From the observation deck, return to the ground below by riding down on a circuit of zip lines stretching across canyons and between treetops.
Zipping along nearly two miles (three kilometers) of cables, you will see the rain forest as well as get a panoramic view of the volcano and lake from a whole new perspective. There are currently ten zip line cables and they range in height from 30 meters to 200 meters and in length from 200 meters to 750 meters.

This private reserve is near El Castillo, on the north-facing slopes of the Cordillera de Tilarán offers phenomenal volcano views, to be enjoyed from an aerial Sky Tram that rises 236 meters in a 1250 meters ride, taking visitors up to a mirador (lookout point) where starts the Sky Trek zip line circuit.
Our major concern its safety, the prime objective of our staff is to provide a wonderful tour with a high standard of security, this is why the equipment is top quality like world class French made Petzl harnesses. Sky Trek is the top of the line of Canopy Tours, because it incorporates some significant differences, such as superior breaking systems, wider steel platforms, highly trained staff.

Further, the construction is of the highest quality, utilizing protective and secure materials, including metal platforms covered with mesh-covered steel rails, which prevent falling or sliding. We will provide you the helmet, gloves and harnesses of the best quality in the world, so you will get the safest, most comfortable and exciting experience that you will never forget!
Before leaving the main building to start your tour, you will be fitted with all of the necessary safety equipment (harness, helmet, gloves), which the guides will take care to properly adjust. Afterwards the guides will deliver a safety speech detailing proper form and the innovative braking system.

In the event of lightening or winds exceeding 120 km/h ( 75mph ) Sky Trek will cancel its tours for safety reasons; with lesser wind or rain only serving to add to the excitement, and speed, of the zip line tour. Sky Trek also provides complimentary lockers to store your backpacks while taking part in the canopy tour.

Sky Tram:
The slow-paced Sky Tram gondolas soar smoothly through the rain forest, offering up endless views during their mountainous ascent. Accompanied by a bilingual guide, tour takers will be able 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.
The Sky tram ends in a wide observation platform on the highest point of the Arenal Reserve, where you can sit down on comfortable chairs to enjoy the view. You may stay as long as you wish on the platform admiring the volcano, the lake, the mountain range and rain forest.

This tour is a full age tour, even for people with some disability, thanks to the space of our gondolas that fit a wheelchair inside, without folding it.

The first option is to ride back down the same way you came up, on the Sky Tram. On the ride you will be able to notice how the vegetation varies as the altitude changes once again. You can also opt for the more adventurous route back which is to zip your way to the bottom along the fast moving Sky Trek canopy tour zip lines, the best option for those seeking a rush of adrenaline.
Also on the site there are both a butterfly and orchid garden nearby the reception so save a little time to check them out as well, with no additional fees these are courtesy of the company.

Sky Walk:
Costa Rica Sky Adventures is the founders and creator of the world famous Sky Walk hanging bridges. This concept was introduced in Monteverde in 1997 and since has been a total achievement to explore the forest from imaginable perspectives. Here you can experience spectacular views as you walk across the metal structures over serious heights. Several bridges take you right alongside the canopy of tall trees, some of which have colonized the bridges, draping their woody lianas over the ramparts. Bring binoculars, for here’s your chance to spot birds and howler monkeys at their own level.

Sky Walk offers visitors yet another opportunity to get a perspective on the dynamic rainforest at a much slower pace; here you can enjoy two amazing waterfalls, and a stunning cantilever platform 30 meters high with spectacular views of the forest, volcano and lake. There are set guided tours available or visitors have the option of doing the Sky Walk without a guide and at any time during normal hours of operation.
