The Original Canopy Tour is located in the private reserve of the Cloud Forest Lodge in the Monteverde area.
The reserve consists of approximately 70 acres of primary and secondary tropical rainforest
and cloud forest, which are extremely rich in its biodiversity.
This eco-systems contain a variety of Bromeliads & Epiphytes, among other species
of plants, animals, birds and insects on the huge branches of the trees.
Here we have constructed a series of observation platforms and
traverses that will take you through the canopy layer of the rainforest.
The Rain Forest Aerial Tram is a unique ecotourism
and research facility which opened in October of 1994.
Visitors from around the world ride the
Tram on a fascinating excursion
through the rain forest canopy and its
hanging gardens of plants and animals
hidden at the tops of tall tropical trees.
Home to two-thirds of all rain forest
species, the rain forest canopy is a
little-known world of tremendous beauty
and extraordinary biological diversity. Our park,
(adjacent to Braulio Carillo National Park and only
an hour from San Jose), possesses one of the richest
canopy communities in the world.
