As you get higher, you will see how the plants and the animals change. The gondola can stop on request, so you can see parts of the forest better. A guide will tell you more about Arenal's ecosystem and the animals you will see.
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.
Cancellation policy: Sky Adventures has a strict cancellation policy. If a reservation is canceled less than 48 hours prior to the tour date, there are no refund possibilities.
