To gently move over the canopy of primary and secondary forests on an aerial tram allows the visitor to learn about the interaction of the flora and fauna in it, without disturbing its natural habitat. Each aerial tram has an experienced guide that explains every detail of the forest life and points out every single bird, animal, leaf or tree that needs to be noticed. It’s more of an educational tour than just sightseeing.
