Hanging Bridge

Over the treetops the hanging bridge is an unforgettable experience. With more than 35 meter (115 ft) of height and more than 500 meters of length the bridge gives an exceptional view of the Amazonas flora and fauna. The bridge has an easy access and no special skill or equipment is required. The bridge is suspended between 14 of the greatest trees in the area and it is one of the longest bridges in the world ( all of the programs that we have with Explorama consider this experience).
