Monteverde Canopy Tours: Ziplining Tours (optional bungee jumping!)
The Monteverde Extremo Canopy Tour is perfect for the adventure-bound, those seeking high adrenaline experiences, and not for the faint of heart! Extremo canopy is not located near the main nature reserves in the area nor over much prime forest like some of the other canopy tours but as its name suggests it is an extreme rush! This ziplining tour offers 16 Ziplines, 4 kilometers (2.5 miles), including 5 cables that range from 425m to 1km. Included in the Canopy tour are the Superman, Tarzan Swing, a rappel, and a unique tunnel cable.
Plus there is now a thrilling bungee jump, the highest in Central America, for those who dare!!
Extremo Canopy has 21 platforms and 16 cables, the last of which delivers you to the rappel, where you descend to the ground and the awaiting adventure of the Tarzan Swing. Here you will start with a short hike to the upper platform from which you make your ¨big jump¨. This feature attaches to your harness and allows you to act like its namesake by jumping off the platform and swinging through the area.
The canopy covers a total distance of 4km. 5 of the ziplines measure 467m, 425m, 600m, 750m, and 1 km. The ziplines have an approximate height of 75m up to 150m. The total duration of the tour is 3 hours.
Extremo Canopy price includes:
1. Rappel (30m)
2. Tarzan Swing (80m) - See Video of Tarzan Swing
3 Superman Aerial Zip Line: The Superman cable allows you to feel like a bird while you soar over the mountains, forest, and pasture land. It is a 1-kilometer cable with a height of 140 meters
4. Superman Subterranean: Fly 240m through a tunnel under a mountain!
Super Swing. An exhilarating swing on a 50m long rope, a 100m high! You will have two harnesses, chest and waist as well as a helmet and carabiners.
Difference between the Super Swing and the Tarzan Swing: The Extreme Swing is nearly as high as the bungee, about three times higher than the Tarzan; an amazing experience. In comparison, the Tarzan swing is tame! The Extreme Swing is for anyone who likes an adrenaline kick of the highest order and not for everyone!! The Tarzan swing anyone can do and is included in the tour. The Extreme Swing carries an extra charge.
Bungee Jump: This is a unique jump, 143m high. The highest in Costa Rica and Central America click here for more information
Scattered throughout the tour are short hikes, totaling more than 2.8 kilometers (1.74 miles), which allows you to enjoy the surrounding secondary growth cloud forest, pasture lands, and views of the Gulf of Nicoya at a more leisurely pace than the ziplines permit. There is also a picturesque waterfall on the property ideal for photographs.
Another aspect of Extremo is positioning style when ziplining. Here, you are carefully fitted with a helmet and the popular Petzel brand harness as well as specially reinforced leather gloves. Proper position, once hanging from the cable, includes a sitting position with knees up and ankles crossed; head tilted to one side for clear visibility; dominant hand behind and on top of the cable with an open palm and a hand lightly held around the straps between the cable and your harness. Having your dominant hand directly on the cable helps stabilize balance and when pulled down acts as your brake.
The guides at Extremo, besides being very personable, are experienced, well-trained, and bilingual.
As there are no lockers for personal belongings, we recommend you bring only those items you can keep, well secured in zippered pockets or on straps, on your person.
