A natural history walk* is must-do in Monteverde. Long before adrenaline adventure activities like zipline canopy tours became popular, natural history walks in Monteverde’s various trail systems were, and continue to be, one of the best ways to experience the forest, learn about our biodiversity, and takeaway new knowledge about sustainability and conservation.
On our approximately 3hr natural history walk (which is led by a certified, experienced, professional naturalist guide**) the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Curi Cancha Reserve or SkyWalk Bridges are transformed into an educational outing with plenty of opportunities to see plants, birds, and other wildlife you might miss on your own.
Starting in early 2020 and until further notice, we replaced our group tours with “one-bubble-tours,” which means all the tours we offer right now are private tours just for your family or group.
*Some other ways to call a “natural history walk” are: guided tour, guided walk, cloud forest walk, and cloud forest tour.
**There are many naturalist guides in Monteverde who are not certified in a traditional academic way but who are fantastic, well-read, professional guides with decades of experience. We wholly support non traditionally-certified guides who demonstrate these high standards, and we hire them for our tours in some cases.
