The Colon Province - Gatun Lake
Aerial Tram & Exhibits

The aerial tram ride traverses a mile long tract of Humid Forest that lies within the Gamboa Resort’s boundaries. You will observe the forest canopy in some areas and are likely to encounter birds and hear Howler monkeys. The tram ascends 280 feet over half a mile and ends atop a hill. From here you will walk two minutes to the observation tower (which is optional) and for those with some stamina involves a climb of a 100 feet up a mildly inclined ramp which is also wheelchair accessible. From the observation tower you'll get great views of the Canal, the Chagres River as well as the surrounding forested areas of Soberania Nat'l Park and the town of Gamboa. The Tower is slightly less than 500 feet above sea level with most of this elevation attained by tram. On the return portion of the tram you will descend the final half-mile back to the starting point. After the aerial tram tour you will visit the self-guided exhibits at the Gamboa Resort.
