We are the outfit that invented this activity; hence the name “The Original Canopy Tour” We started in Costa Rica and now export this technology to Puerto Rico. Beware of imitations!

The Original Canopy Tour offers everyone an exhilarating opportunity to soar through the rain forest high above the forest floor.

Over 1 million of our guests have SAFELY “soared” from tree to tree by sliding along our Patent Pending cables that make “Zip Lines” obsolete. Caveat Emptor! Sign our WebGuestbook at the bottom of this page to be kept up to date with new info or to comment on our site.

History

The original Canopy Tour was first developed in the mid 1990's in Costa Rica by Darren Hreniuk, who is internationally renowned as the originator of this activity. Mr. Hreniuk has appeared in many TV programs such as CNN, Discovery Channel, E! Entertainment, NBC's Today Show and National Geographic among others. This activity was developed as an attraction that takes people high into the rain forest canopy, to show them a totally new environment and why this last frontier has to be protected from man's destructive nature.

Mission

Each Original Canopy Tour build is a work of art and no two are the same. Each location will aid in conservation, reforestation. and education. The idea of this activity is to involve people in an adventure that will make them appreciate the rain forest. Our purpose is to bring conscience to the public of the importance of the ecosystem and educate them on how we can save it.
