🚋 Welcome to Sky Tram Monteverde

Experience the Magic of the Cloud Forest

Prepare to embark on a journey as you step into the heart of Costa Rica’s enchanting Cloud Forest. At Sky Tram Monteverde, we invite you to experience the magic of this extraordinary ecosystem from a unique vantage point. Our aerial trams will transport you through the lush canopies, offering breathtaking views and unrivaled opportunities to connect with nature.

Sky Tram Monteverde is a beautiful 30-minute ride on an aerial Gondola between 45 and 65 meters (131 and 213 feet) above the Monteverde cloud forest, featuring astonishing views above the canopy.

On this tour, you will travel a distance of 800 meters (2,624 feet) up and down from the reception of Treetopia Park (formerly Sky Adventures Monteverde) to the highest point of the cloud forest. You will ride at an easygoing slow speed of 10 km/h (6 mi/h) to enjoy the views overlooking the Monteverde cloud forest.

There is a stop at the top of Sky Tram Monteverde before heading back to reception, from where you can walk on a beautiful and easy trail of approximately 200 meters (656 feet), which can take up to 30 minutes if you take it slow. From that point, you will also have access to a couple of beautiful viewpoint platforms overlooking the cloud forest and an observation tower from where you can see the Arenal volcano, Nicoya’s Gulf, and a panoramic view of the entire Monteverde region.

😍 “THE Views!”



Sky Tram Monteverde exceeded my expectations! The tram ride was serene, and the short and easy nature trail at the top was an excellent way to connect with nature. The observation tower was also a highlight as it provided a 360-degree view of the Monteverde region, but be aware that there are many stairs to climb to get to that point. Alternatively, some viewpoints require minimum walking and provide incredible vistas and photo moments. I especially recommend to older folks who can’t walk much and still want to experience the Monteverde cloud forest.”

At Sky Tram Monteverde, we offer an unparalleled adventure through Costa Rica’s breathtaking Cloud Forest. Here’s why you should choose us:

🌳 Why Choose Sky Tram Monteverde?

Spectacular Views:

At Sky Tram Monteverde, our aerial trams provide panoramic views of lush greenery and the beautiful outskirts of Monteverde. On a clear day, you can see four volcanoes (Arenal, Miravalles, Rincon de la Vieja, and Tenorio), as well as Cerro Pelado, Cerro Pinocho, the Nicoya’s Gulf, Lake Arenal, and even Lake Nicaragua. There’s another place in Costa Rica where you can see such iconic landmarks simultaneously.


We’re committed to preserving the environment with minimal ecological impact on this unique ecosystem. At Sky Walk Monteverde, we mitigate the tiny environmental effects of the aerial trams (which use diesel as their energy source) by protecting many acres of sacred cloud forest that would otherwise be used for cattle and agriculture. We also take pride in other environmental practices, such as recycling and digital technology, to make reservations online rather than on paper.

Photographer’s Paradise:

Capture the magic with unparalleled photo opportunities as you soar above the treetops. There are many viewpoints in the Monteverde, but Sky Tram Monteverde has them all in one place. With a 360-degree view overlooking the cloud forest and the most iconic sights on Monteverde’s outskirts, the possibilities for amazing photographs are endless. Whether you’re a seasoned photographer, an amateur, or a regular with a modern mobile phone, our aerial tram will give you a unique vantage point for taking fantastic pictures.

Excellent Experience Sky Tram Monteverde

We took the tram up the mountain. Typically I wouldn't say I like heights, but I wanted to do this tour and was glad I did as I felt completely safe, and this is a great way to see the cloud forest.

– Tatum Nash
Pricey but Beautiful Sky Tram Monteverde

We did the Sky Tram on a rainy and windy day. The tram ride up was very windy and thrilling, and the view was beautiful. It was pricey but beautiful. All in all, we had a great day here!
