Outstanding structures that take you into new heights such as Selvatura’s Treetop Walkway, a 1.9 mile (approximately 3 kilometer) trail that crosses through the cloud forest, in which visitors will walk through eight different bridges from various lengths ranging between 150 feet (50 meters) up to 510 feet (170 meters) and altitudes ranging between 36 feet (12 meters) up to 180 feet (60 meters). Each of the bridges features a five-foot width, the widest ones in the country, and also a capacity of up to 80 people per bridge making them both the longest and strongest bridge system in Costa Rica. The treetop walkways are suitable for people of all ages and physical condition.
