Rainforest Aerial Tram
The Aerial Tram, which covers 2.6 km and takes about an hour and twenty minutes to complete, glides you smoothly through the lush treetops of the rainforest. A wonderful opportunity to experience this primary forest first hand, these open-air gondolas can seat up to six people and include a naturalist guide. Your guide will help inform you about the various ecosystems existing within the rainforest - from the forest floor to the top of the trees - and will help to spot critters swinging, hanging, or flying through the trees.
See colorful tropical wildlife and spectacular rainforest vegetation riding through the treetops on our Rainforest Aerial Tram. Most animals live in the upper rainforest canopy where they feed on fruits and seeds that grow where the sunlight reaches. You will journey into this amazing world that most people never see. Observe monkeys, exotic birds, colorful insects, the occasional shy sloth and other extraordinary rainforest inhabitants from the unhurried comfort of our open tramcars.
