Sky Trek Arenal by Sky Adventures Arenal
Sky Trek Arenal is one of the best zipline courses in Costa Rica, featuring three main aspects:
- Safety First*
- Minimal walking is required.
- The highest zipline in the country.
- The fastest zipline in the country (up to 80 km / h (50 mi / h).
- A 20-min ride on a Gondola (Sky Tram) to reach the first zip line.

*Sky Trek Arenal is the only zipline tour in Arenal and La Fortuna where you do not need to use a leather glove to slow down. Instead, you use a handlebar to brake without the risk of getting injured.
Other tour companies in the area feature zip lining experiences, but safety is not as robust as at Sky Trek Arenal. They give you a leather glove for braking. You use that glove to grab your zip line to slow down as you approach the next platform, which can cause injuries.
Even though this type of injury is uncommon, this risk is not present at Sky Trek Arenal, thanks to this handlebar braking system.
The Sky Trek Arenal zipline tour takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete the entire course, including a 20-min ride on an aerial tram to reach the first platform, viewpoints, and seven zip lines with astonishing views overlooking Arenal’s lake and volcano.
