From the insects to the mammals, the greatest place to see the rainforest is definitely its canopy

And the best way to fly like a raptor is definitely through a rainforest.

Flying through the tops of the trees on the jungle might be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. The wind on your face, the emptiness underneath, the freedom feeling and the breathtaking views make the Canopy Tours an indispensable life experience.

Now, this incredible feeling is accompanied with the highest safety for you: The equipment is 100% certified for adventure tours, and we use some of the best brands in the business and care for the equipment on a day-to-day basis, as well as maintaining daily tabs to control the use of the equipment. The main cables are 1/2, which exceed the regular standards of 3/8 and our platforms are an average of 7x7 feet in diameter and can handle more than 15 people at once.
