Ziplining through the Cloud Forest

Monteverde is famous for its cloud forest, and it is stunning. While there are lots of walks and hikes deep into the cloud forest, a zipline through one takes you to a whole new level. To be flying through the forest canopy and the clouds that dance around the treetops, really means that you are flying through the clouds!

Selvatura Adventure Park is where you will literally fly through the cloud forest. It is the only canopy tour that is built entirely within the cloud forest. This differentiator sets the Selvatura Park canopy tour apart from the others as this makes it a unique experience to live while in Monteverde and Costa Rica.

Canopy Tours adrenaline add-ons

If a canopy tour wasn´t thrilling enough, some zip-lining tours offer add-ons, usually at the end of the tour to finish the tour off with an additional bang! It may be a Tarzan swing or a Superman ride or maybe reaching the forest floor by rappelling down from the last platform. Not all canopy tours offer these fun add-ons but in Monteverde they do!

Selvatura Adventure Park offers a Tarzan swing as part of the classic canopy tour that can be upgraded to include a superman ride style cable ride which means you fly along the cable horizontally and headfirst in a special harness. And the thrill-seekers love it! Monteverde Extreme also offers the Tarzan swing, the superman style canopy line, and a rappel at the end of the tour whereas Sky Adventures has an enclosed aerial tram ride prior to the canopy tour.

Which add-on is better? All are fun and safe. It depends on your adventurous spirit although, the Selvatura Adventure Park is more middle-of-the-line with its canopy tour add-ons which means it works better for families and those wanting some great thrills but not over the top.
