Rainforest Hiking At The Soberania National Park
What to expect
Our half day proposal starts picking you up at your lodge to go to The Soberania National Park, an important natural reserve only 45 minutes away from the city. The Park is vital for the Canal of Panama functioning due to the rainforest and Gatun Lake water tributaries. It is also part of a biological corridor that goes all the way from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. In our way we will pass by the former Canal Zone, the Pedro Miguel Locks, Centenario Bridge and the French Cemetery (in honor of the canal workers).
Accompanied by our bilingual guide, you will hike through a dense tropical canopy, looking out for birds, monkeys, butterflies, frogs and many others species while listening to the informative commentary about the region’s incredible biodiversity.
The recommended trail is The Plantation Road (depending the day and season), a former cacao plantation land which includes both flat and hilly sections winding through a mature forest. The hike takes approximately 3 hours in order to walk between 7 to 10 kms (4 to 6 miles). This trail is a Bird watching paradise and a perfect gate away from the city suitable for almost everyone.
