Pedal Over Ecuador’s Cloud Forest on a Sky Bike

By: | March 8th, 2015

You can walk through Ecuador’s Andean cloud forests to catch a glimpse of the mist-shrouded lushness. But nothing can quite beat the Sky Bike, a thrilling bicycle ride that lets you fly through the mist.

Experience Nature Up Close Without Disturbing It

Sky Bike is a bicycle-like contraption dangling on a 656 foot long cable that is stretched between two points in the forest. This bicycle ride lets you ride through the clouds to explore this mysterious forest at a leisurely pace, and without disturbing its inhabitants.

Designed for Two People, This Aerial Bicycle is an Exciting Way to Explore the Forest Canopy

You can pedal your way through the forest canopy going as high as 196 feet (60 meters) up in the air. You can experience towering trees, waterfalls, a river gorge, animals, and hundreds of species of birds, flora, and fauna.

This unusual ride to experience the cloud forest is worth every bit of effort it takes to pedal along.
