About this tour

The Selvatura Canopy Tour of Monteverde has among the longest cables in all of Costa Rica and is the only Zipline Tour that takes place deep in the virgin cloud forests. The activity has 15 cables and 18 platforms. This way we cross through the virgin cloud forest of Monteverde in a journey of more than 2 miles, flying at the middle of the gigantic trees in the virgin habitat of the Monteverde cloud forest.

The tour begins with an important introduction and presentation of the crew for the operation of the activity. The guides will give you an explanation about the safety rules and instructions, to enjoy the adventure to the fullest. After this introductory talk we can start our adventure!

The guides will assemble the equipment using the highest quality harnesses, and we will make the first cable. The first cable is short and low of height (our purpose is to break the ice and make you feel fearless). Then we will make the longer and higher cables. Your adrenaline will rise up to the maximum levels and you will be able to enjoy one of the most beautiful forests habitat worldwide.

The Selvatura Canopy Tour includes the famous Tarzan swing, which is optional. This is highly recommended for real adventurers and adrenaline lovers.
