Which is better for zip lining? Which has the better suspension bridge tour? Selvatura or Sky Trek?
Sky trek is one of the best zipline tours in the country. I would recommend going with them, and their hanging bridges tour is excellent as well.
Hope this helps,

I reccomend to my clients most of the time...Sky treck...
www.skytrek.com also my fav...
We did the canopy tour at Selvatura and it was awesome! Sorry I can't offer a comparison of the two. We walked on a couple of hanging bridges at the end of the tour and after the adreneline rush of the zipline I didn't feel like we needed to do both.
I have a similar query. Planning on going next year and I want to know if you can go on these independently (after admission is paid) or if a guide is compulsory.
You can do it without a guide...Sky Treck have a great safety record , a lot of fun, they pick you up at your hotel fro free...and also is in a lot bettter weather than Selavtura ... Lovely views of some nice healthy cows...I have been in Sky Treck number of times...and I have seen more cows around Selvatura...sorry...
Sky trek for me
I prefer Selvatura to Skywalk because of the safety and capacity of their bridges (10 people vs. 80 people). Selvatura's bridges are certified by engineers. Another difficulty at Skywalk is that when busy, you have to wait for people to get off the bridges for you to go and you have little time to appreciate it as the next group is pushing. At Selvatura, who is in a hurry goes by and who wants to observe longer stays.
In Selvatura there are 8 bridges vs. 6 at Skywalk.
I haven't done selvatura but I did Skytrek and Extremo. I must say I am torn between the two. Skytrek was alot faster zip-lines but it was more like a platform to platform. Extremo's zip-lines were still kinda fast, but what i loved is that they went tree to tree, which gave it a more flying through the forest feel. Extremo also has the options to do the Tarzan swing, which was amazing, and they also have the Superman. In the Superman your straps are moved around and you are strapped to the zip-line by your back and legs, so you feel like you are flying across the valley. Great experience.
