Sky Tram & Sky Trek Costa Rica Tour

The slow-paced Sky Tram gondolas soar smoothly through the rainforest, offering up endless views during their mountainous ascent. Accompanied by a bilingual guide, tour takers will have the ability to stop the tram at any point, a feature that allows for magnificent, one-of-a-kind photographs to be captured and tropical birds to be spotted.

Extraordinary views of the Arenal Volcano's southern face

Once the top is reached, visitors are invited to explore the observation deck, where they’ll enjoy magnificent views of the Arenal Volcano’s southern face. From here, one can also see Lake Arenal and the rolling hillsides that surround it. Visitors can spend as much time as they please on the observation deck before heading back down.

There are two ways to return to the Sky Tram’s base. You can ride the tram down the same route that you ascended or sign up for a fast-paced zip line tour to the bottom. Those seeking an adrenalin rush would be wise to choose the second option, which will have them flying along a series of secure cables connecting one mountain to another.

At the tram’s base there is another large observation deck as well as a restaurant. The views from this deck compliment and contrast the one from the mountain’s peak.

Sky Tram is a 45-minute drive from the town of La Fortuna. The trip is shorter if you are staying in hotels like Arenal Observatory Lodge, Montana de Fuego or Arenal Paraiso, for example.

We offer a shuttle service with door-to-door transportation from your Arenal hotel. Cost is $8 a person. Please note that children under 8 years of age are not allowed on Sky Trek.

Transportation Note: If you need transportation from the Lost Iguana Resort, the Arenal Lodge or The Springs Resort and Spa, please note that it is available only for the 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM tours.

Cancellation Policy: Sky Trek has a strict cancellation policy. If a reservation is canceled less than 48 hours prior to the tour date, NO REFUND is given.
