The Sky Bike
Located close to the hotel, the Sky Bike makes for an original and exciting way to explore 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 m (655 feet) apart, crossing a beautiful gorge above a river flowing between rocks and trees below. Silent, easy-to-use and fun, it’s an activity for children over 1 m high accompanied by an adult, providing guests with the chance to fly over the natural world close to the lodge and even spot its denizens. The ride takes 10 minutes or 20 round-trip.
To get to the Sky Bike, we walk 15 minutes along the access road, and then just 5 minutes (160 m) along a short trail.
We can combine the Sky Bike with other activities like a hike on the Walking Palm trail to the Laguna waterfall and walk back to the lodge from there (1 hour, 1.5 miles). For a longer walk, we can take the Capuchin trail and walk to the Healing waterfall (a demanding hike and only recommended for people in good physical conditions because the hike is 2-miles long and takes 2.5 hours).
The combination of activities – Sky Bike, Observation Tower and hike – lasts about 3 hours.
This trail leads from the Sky Bike landing station to the road, following the course of the river. Here we can come across a very special palm: Irearthea deltoidea, famous for being able to ‘walk’ towards the light in order to improve its chances of growth.
