Sky Trek and Sky Tram Arenal

Book This Trip

Enjoy fantastic views on the Arenal Volcano and the Lake while you do any of the following activities and adventures:

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.

Sky Trek: Once you have arrived on the observation deck, you have the chance to return to the ground below by riding down on a circuit of zip lines stretching across canyons and between treetops. The tour includes 8 cross-sectional cables that together have a total length of 1.7 miles with distances from 100 to 2460 feet, and with a maximum height of 660 feet, which exceed the treetops providing a panoramic view of the Arenal volcano and lake.
Experience a totally new experience, the new Sky Trek Night tour combines the conventional SkyTrek but at night and with the possibility to observe the volcano eruptions and the nocturnal wildlife.

Sky Walk: For a different but no less exhilarating forest adventure, try Sky Walk an impressive series of bridges and paths. 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.
