The Sky Bike
Located close to the hotel, the Sky Bike makes for a novel and exciting way of exploring the forest canopy up close. Designed for two people to use at once, one person pedals the bike along a cable stretched between two points in the forest – around 200 meters (655 feet) apart – while zipping over a beautiful gorge complete with running rivers that flow around the rocks and trees below. Silent, easy-to-use and fun, it’s an activity that’s highly recommended for adults and children over 1 meter (3.2 feet) tall (note: children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult). The Sky Bike never fails to give our guests an incredible flight over the natural world that sits close to the Lodge. The ride takes 10-minutes (or 20-minutes roundtrip).
To get to the Sky Bike, all we need to do is walk 15 minutes along the access road and then just 5 minutes (160 meters/524 feet) along a short trail.
We can combine the Sky Bike with other activities such as a hike down the Walking Palm trail to the Laguna waterfall and a hike back to the lodge from there (1 hour, 2.4 kilomters/1.5 miles). If you’d like to go for something even more extensive, we can take the Capuchin trail and walk to the Healing waterfall (a more demanding hike which is only recommended for guests that are in good physical condition, as this route is 3.2 kilometers/2 miles long and takes around 2.5 hours).
In total, the combination of these activities – Sky Bike, Observation Tower and your choice of a hike – lasts around 3-4 hours.
This trail leads from the Sky Bike landing station to the road. Along the way, we will walk along the river and come across a very special type of palm: Irearthea deltoidea, famous for being able to ‘walk’ towards the light in order to improve its chances of growth. You’ll find out how they manage to accomplish such an impressive feat on this trail!
