Canopy Tour

Nature Below Your Feet Experience the thrill of your life on horseback riding, hiking through the rain forest, and gliding throught the canopy as you sail through the the treetops from tree to tree to horizontal traverse cables while admiring nature.

Journey: Located at 2 kms from the center of the town La Fortuna, we will start our exciting adventure with a horse-back ride of about 40 minutes through a farming and pasture area within the farm La Orquidea, then continue our trip with a short hike through a tropical rain forest where our guide will point out the numerous species of vegetation and animals encountered in their natural habitat. Sometimes it is possible to see different species of animals such as white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, agoutis, a variety of snakes, and great diversity of birds as well as a large variety of plants species such as orchids and trees. Some of the trees found here have a great grouser and height, and some of them may reach up to 55 meters (180 feet) in height.


Among the species of trees present here and where the platforms are located on, it could be cited: Cocora (Billia hippocastanum) with 21 meters (70 feet), Monkey’s Comb (Apeiba membranacea) with 33 meters (106 feet), and Capulin (Mortoniodendron apetala) with 38 meters (120 feet) of height. From the first platform, you can slide through the forest canopy via ropes and cables. Our canopy tour location features 7 platforms connected with 5 traverse cables with different length of 112 meters, 78 meters, 100 meters, 60 meters, and 170 meters, and a rappel ending at the edge of a picturesque river bend.
