Selvatura Canopy Walkways (Suspended bridges)

For those less adventurous, or want more time to enjoy walking around thecanopy or go bird watching a popular choice is the suspended (or hanging bridges) called the Walkways.These are a series of suspension bridges, hung in the canopy, which one can walk across. The sides of the bridges are fenced off with the railings reaching chest height.

Selvatura Hanging Bridges Monteverde


The tour is not just bridges but a series of trails that wind between the bridges. In total, these trails cover 3.3km. There are eight different bridges which have lengths and heights that vary between 50 to 170m long and 12 and 60m high.. Every bridge is 1.5m wide and has a capacity for 60 people. The hanging bridges are designed for people of every age and reasonable physical condition. Guides are available at certain times for an extra price

As the bridges are suspended they do bounce a little. Overall the feeling is pretty secure due to the high railings and solid structure. Unless you have an acute fear of heights this should not be a problem. The bridges offer a nice perspective with plenty of time to look around and take photos. You can see many small trees and ferns from above and also admire birds that inhabit the upper regions of the trees. The trails are in excellent condition.
