A natural history walk* is a must-do in Monteverde, and we offer it as a private tour or a small group tour. 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, profesional naturalist guide**) the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Santa Elena Reserve, Aguti 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.
*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.
