This amazing experience starts with a short 15-minute drive from La Fortuna, in our zipline park, Arenal Canopy Adventure.
Our expert zip line guides will welcome you before helping you into your gear and providing a safety briefing. Next, we will head up the first platform with a height of 25 meters (80 ft.) to begin our way across 8 cables that will take us through 2 km (1.2 miles) of beautiful rainforest.
This zipline circuit consists of 13 platforms, including 4 built-in enormous trees with a specialized anchor system that allows the trees to grow unharmed. The cables range in height from 20 m. (65 ft.) to 90 m. (300 ft.) and between 70 m. (230 ft.) and 600 m. (1970 feet) in lengths. This allows you to reach speeds of up to 56 kph (35 mph)! Each cable has distinct dimensions and scenery.
We will fly above canyons, mountains, farmlands, and lush rainforests. By the time we reach the 6th cable, your confidence level will be high, so you can let go and let the guide control your braking, while you focus only on the views and the thrill of the ride.
Next, we will stop for the popular Tarzan Swing and our surprise challenge. Although the experience may sound a little risky, you can be set at ease knowing that you will have the assistance of two expert guides at every cable; one which will safely connect you to the cable and watch for the safety of the others waiting their turn, and the other to help in braking and in disconnecting you from the cable once you arrive at the platform. In addition, our cable, and braking systems as well as our safety protocols are constantly reviewed to assure the safety of our guests, allowing you to feel comfortable and in control at all times.
Each platform provides amazing views of the tree canopies of different ecosystems and unique angles for magnificent photographs.
Great views of Arenal Volcano, an amazing perspective of the rainforest from treetops, and a healthy release of adrenaline
