Overview

Selvatura is the only adventure park fully built inside the cloud forest, so you get the best views in the Monteverde area.

Located in the beautiful cloud forest near the Santa Elena Reserve, the Selvatura hanging bridges (also referred to as “Treetop Walkways Suspension Bridges” or “Canopy Walkways”) is your best bet in terms of views of the Monteverde Cloud Forest. 

There are also a few benches on the well-maintained, fairly easy trail. These and other factors make this a good choice for older folks and people who might not want to walk as much.

On this self-guided tour, you will hike through lush cloud forest on trails with 8 bridges of different sizes and heights that offer close looks into the canopy.  This tour might not come with the adrenaline rush of a zipline, and at this altitude, you will probably not see much wildlife. Still, it will provide a unique glimpse into the canopy of cloud forest, and it will also give you a chance to breathe some of the purest air on earth.

Prices

The Selvatura Hanging Bridges entrance fee is $27.50 for residents (all ages), $27.50 for foreign kids (4-12 years old),  $33 for foreign students (13 to 18 with student ID), and $39 for adults (19 and up). These rates include transportation both ways, but they do not include taxes. You may also upgrade to join a group led by a local tour guide for an additional fee.

Overall, this tour provides you the best vantage point to observe the beauty of the cloud forest at all its levels and is suitable for people of all ages. The 8 bridges are wide and easy to manage, though it is not recommended for people with extreme weight excess or pregnancy.

How to Get There

The Selvatura Hanging Bridges start at Selvatura Park. Even though the tour includes transportation, the recommendation is to drive to the park directly whenever possible. Driving to the park can save you up to 90 minutes since the shuttles have to stop many times at multiple locations to pick up or drop off travelers.

Great Views Selvatura Hanging Bridges

The suspended bridges were great. Even though we also went to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, I am glad we did this park as well, because the Cloud Forest only has 1 bridge, where this had about 8.

Immersed In Nature Selvatura Hanging Bridges

I looked at a couple of options for Hanging Bridges, and locals and tourists alike highly recommended Selvatura Park for great reason! I loved the 8 amazing bridges ranging up to 500+ feet long.

Worth Visiting Selvatura Hanging Bridges

My husband was 10 weeks out from total knee surgery, so we really debated doing this. And yet, we really wanted to walk the hanging bridges. It was 3 km around and a bit much, but we enjoyed every minute.
