We know the Arenal Sky Walk hanging bridges well because we’ve been exploring them for years

As we mentioned in our related blog post Sky Adventures Arenal: Ziplining, Hanging Bridges, And Tram Rides In La Fortuna, we’ve been visiting Sky Adventures‘s Arenal (La Fortuna) and Monteverde (Santa Elena) adventure parks and experiencing the company’s adventure and nature tours for more than a decade. In that article, we detailed Sky Adventures‘s entire Arenal operation, including their Arenal Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour, their Arenal Sky Tram aerial tram ride, their Arenal Sky Walk hanging bridges, their Arenal Sky Limit obstacle course, their Arenal Sky River Drift tubing tour, their Arenal Sky Wild kayaking tour, their Arenal Sky Wild biking tour, and their on-site facilities including free lockers, free parking, dining opportunities, and more. If you’re interested in learning about the various tours, activities, and services that are available at the Sky Adventures Arenal Park, please see the article linked to above. If you’re specifically interested in learning about Sky Adventures‘s Arenal Sky Walk hanging bridges, please continue reading below.

Arenal Sky Walk experience

In stark contrast to the Sky Adventures Arenal Park‘s Sky Tram and Sky Trek activities, both of which invite participants to spy on the rainforest from above, the Sky Walk hanging bridges tour provides a unique opportunity to explore Costa Rica’s rainforest from within.

More specifically, if you visit the Sky Walk hanging bridges, you’ll be able to stroll through roughly 4 kilometers of dense, secondary forest amid much of Costa Rica’s biodiversity. Spotting wildlife, especially a wide variety of tropical birds, is common. Though you’ll cover plenty of solid ground as you make your way along the park’s trail, most impressive are the long, metal hanging bridges you’ll cross that are suspended high above the forest floor. In the very least, you’ll be amazed by the majestic beauty of Arenal’s lively rainforest as you make your way across each bridge, completely immersing yourself in nature.

At the Sky Adventures Arenal Park, you can explore the Sky Walk hanging bridges as part of a standalone tour or as part of a combo tour. Combo tour options include coupling the hanging bridges experience with either the Sky Tram aerial tram ride or the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour. Note that because the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour automatically includes a one-way tram ride (see above for details), if you reserve a combo tour that joins the Sky Walk hanging bridges tour with the Sky Trek canopy ziplining tour, you’ll get to ride the Sky Tram too.
