The day begins with the canopy tour located 3 kilometers away from the main town of Santa Elena in Monteverde. After the safety chat and equipment instructions, you will climb a spacious metal ladder, which takes you to the first platform, the guides will check again equipment and provide the necessary information on this cable; the pulley and the safety line will be secured and we’re ready to slide over the top of the trees.
We will have the opportunity to travel along six more cables of different heights and altitudes, before arriving to the “rappel”, were you will fall in to the vacuum helped by a 15 meter vertical rope. We go back to flying over the forest canopy, passing three more cables which will lead to the “Tarzan swing”, which consists of a swing in the middle of forest reaching a 30 meter height, properly tied from two ropes. Once you get into the lower platform there is a short 300 meter hike that will take you to a new section of the property with four more cables, including a 700 meter long line. The final canopy section is the longest and highest, 600 meter long and 80 meter high.
Then you will go to do an ATV tour, where you get equipped with helmets, rain coats and safety equipment. Your guide will take you to the practice area for instructions and a safety chat about the ATV. Then, you will drive your ATV on a practice course to determine your driving skills. If the guides feel that you cannot drive the ATV properly, it is their decision to have you drive with them instead of alone. You will go among private trails with amazing landscapes, depending on the weather conditions and the participant’s skills the trails may vary.
