About Sky Adventures
Sky Adventures is theme park situated at the heart of the cloud forest in Monteverde Costa Rica, located at 1,400 meters above the sea level (roughly 4,600 feet) which is high enough for you to have amazing views above the canopy of the Monteverde area, but low enough for you to have the opportunity to potentially spot some wildlife during your visit.
“Sky”, as it is referred to by locals, has been offering nature tours and adventure activities since the early 1,990s and it features the strongest security protocols in the area with the slogan “Safety First” which makes it stand out from the other theme parks in Monteverde.
Sky Adventures offers 3 main activities:
- Sky Trek
- Sky Walk
- Sky Tram
This is one of the best ziplining tours in Monteverde Costa Rica, featuring 3 main aspects:
- No walking, just ziplining from platform to platform.
- Fastest ziplines in the area reaching speeds of up to 64km/h (39.8 miles per hour).
- Automatic break, so you don’t have to worry about crashing into the next platform*
*Sky Trek is the only park in Monteverde that features an automatic break system in line with their vision to put safety first. This is the main reason that sets this tour apart from all other ziplining tours in Monteverde and this is why we recommend it. The other tour companies also provide amazing ziplining experiences but they provide you with a leather glove that you need to use for breaking as you approach the next platform, and this manual process increases the risk for injuries (either from people not breaking hard enough resulting on a crash, or from people applying too much pressure on the cable causing arm injuries). Even though injuries related to this nature are not frequently heard of, they practically inexistent at Sky Trek thanks to this automatic breaking system.
The Sky Trek ziplining tour takes approximately 2 hours to complete the entire circuit which includes a ride on an aerial tram to reach the first platform, and 8 ziplining cables throughout the Sky Adventures Cloud Forest Park.
• 10 lines of 100m (300ft) to 750m (2,460ft).
• Tram ride with fantastic views.
• Ziplining from platform to platform.
• Brake with pulley, not hands.
• Optional Tarzan swing.
The lack of walking, tram ride, and other factors make this a good choice for folks looking for a more natural, easy going adventure.
This is a more relaxed self-guided* tour that combines a beautiful trail system with hanging bridges, consisting of combination of a 1.5 mile (2.5 km) circuit trail and six hanging bridges, including the longest one in Costa Rica, which is 236-meter long (984 feet). On this walk, you will experience what it’s like to walk above the canopy of the trees, a privileged vantage point to oversee the Monteverde Cloud Forest.
*You can upgrade this Sky Walk to a guided tour, though we typically don’t recommend it as the trail is well marked and easy to travel on your own.
The 2.5 kilometer (1.5 mile) trail is maintained but does have some ascents and descents and thus does require a certain degree of hiking ability. Based on the easy to moderate difficulty of the trail and other offerings within the park, Sky Walk is a good choice for families. Folks who have some trouble getting around or walking might not be up for the walkway trail BUT they can take a very easy-going, scenic aerial tram tour instead (more on the tram in the next section of this page).
- 6 bridges on a trail of 2.5 km (1.5 miles).
- Longest bridge is 236 meters (774 feet).
- One bridge is 70m (230ft) above the ground.
- Some wildlife viewing opportunities.
This is a 20-minute ride above the canopy of the trees on an aerial tram that leads to a coffee shop, a small trail and an observation tower. On this ride, you will enjoy the best views of the Monteverde area. Please note that Sky Tram is included by default when you purchase the Sky Trek ziplining tour, but you can also purchase tickets to it as a stand-alone activity.
Sky Adventures Monteverde also offers an on-site restaurant, as well as the option to purchase your adventure’s footage (you cannot use your own GoPro).
Insurance is also included on the tours as well as the appropriate safety measures to ensure things go well.
We recommend that you get your tickets in advance to secure your spots and to skip the lines at the park.
