Cloudbridge offers guided tours for groups or individuals, usually lasting between 2-4 hours. The difficulty and length can be adjusted to your ability and interest. You will explore waterfalls, primary forest, and areas of reforested land with one of our Cloudbridge naturalists. You can choose between a general tour of reserve or one focused on primary forest habitat, birds, or nocturnal wildlife. Details on our standard tours are provided below.
Larger groups can choose one of our standard tours, or we can tailor the tour to meet your group’s special interests. Some potential specialty topics include: cloud forest flora and fauna, the local history of reforestation, and global climate change.
Tours are usually given in English, but we can sometimes provide guides who speak Spanish, German, or French.
Tours should be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Questions? Email Frank Spooner at email@example.com.
