Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your air-conditioned transportation and proceed along the scenic Amador Causeway en route to the incredible Gamboa Rainforest Resort in Soberania National Park.

On the banks of the Chagres River and Panama Canal, the Gamboa Rainforest Resort is an enchanted hideaway offering a stunning eco-tourism experience. Enjoy ample time to explore the many exhibits devoted to the forest ecosystem, including the orchid gardenand butterfly display before boarding your aerial tram for the approximately 20-minute ascent through the forest canopy.

The Swiss-engineered tram traverses a mile long tract of Humid Forest that lies within the resort's boundaries. You sit comfortably as the tram ascends 280 feet over half a mile and ends atop a hill where an observation tower offers superlative views.

A nature guide accompanies you on you ride among the treetops, and shares information and history about the area as you take in the vast richness of the forest and the abundance of wildlife that calls the rainforest home. Gliding quietly through the forest, you'll hear birds chirping and the call of the Howler Monkey in the distance.

When you reach the top station, an optional short walk brings you to the observation tower. From here, breathtaking views can be seen of the Canal and the Chagres River as well as the town of Gamboa and the surrounding 55,000 acres of the forested Soberania National Park. Lovely photographs can be taken from this vantage point.

At the completion of your magical aerial tram ride, you will re-board your transportation to return to port.
