Sky Adventures Trek & Tram in Arenal
Sky Adventures Arenal Zipline
Sky Adventure Canopy Zipline in Arenal La Fortuna
See the rainforest from new heights- literally! We’ll pick you up from your Arenal hotel and take you to Sky Adventure’s headquarters to embark on an adventure of a lifetime! Start your day off with a relaxing ride up a mountain by an open-air gondola. The breathtaking view will get wider and more breathtaking as you get higher up onto the mountain. When you reach the observation platform at the top, you’ll realize that you really are in for a treat. There, you will begin your adrenaline-pumping journey zipping through the cloud forest: flying like a bird from tree-to-tree and canyon-to-canyon through miles of zipline cables! Admire the amazing nature on your journey across 8 cables that reach up to 660 feet high and 2460 feet long! Your knowledgeable naturalist guide will educate you about Costa Rica’s nature and wildlife as you make our way through the course. You won’t want to miss out on an adventure like this!

Weight and size restrictions: Max 270 pounds with a maximum waist of 42 inches (120 cm) and maximum thigh of 31.5 inches (80 cm).
Have a look at our Adventure Waiver if you have questions about our Costa Rica adventure tour policies.
For reasons beyond our control (climate, river levels, etc.), we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options so you don`t miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run. This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition!
While the recommended weight limit for our canyoneering (rappelling) tour and most zip line tours is 270 lbs (100 kilos) it’s more about waist size than weight as the ropes (canyoneering) and cables (zip lines) are rated for well over 270 lbs but the maximum waist size for the harnesses used for these tours is 42 inches. So if you are a little over 270 lbs but your waist is less than 42 inches you can still do these tours.
This is a sub-contracted, "Approved Provider" and is not operated directly by Desafio Adventure Company. We are beholden to the policies of our providers.

My wife and I went on the zipline tour and was amazed how well it was run. The transportation was on time and we were welcomed with a big smile. Once we got to our designation there were six professional guides that helped the entire group enjoy their experience. We have never ziplined before, but what a way to start! The tour is one of the best in Costa Rica and was personally recommended by one of our friends that have been on their tours before. We were so happy with their services that we booked another tour with them for the very next day! When we are back in beautiful Costa Rica we are going to be calling them for our next adventure. Just know it is a business and bring extra money for pictures, videos, tips, etc.
