Hiking in Panama

E-mail Print PDF

With the incredible flora and fauna, and environments varying from high mountain volcano's over 11,000 feet in elevation, to dense lowland jungles with trees as big around as a Sport Utility Vehicle, hiking in Panama is outstanding. There is no better way to experience Panama's incredible diversity first hand.

If you have a specific interest, with advance notice Adventure Tours Panama can provide you with a guide specializing in birds, plants, insects and even specific species, such as orchids.

There are over 5,000 miles of single track foot trails throughout the Republic of Panama, many of them within the national parks that are located all over the country, and even more trails that are the basic foot and horse trails that have been in use by the different groups and cultures that have inhabited Panama for thousands of years.

Adventure Tours Panama is currently involved in a voluntary program to develop the Sendero TransPanama, or Trans-Panama Trail, which will extend from the Panama - Costa Rica border, to the Darien Jungle and the border with Columbia. The trails already exist. Our goal is to hike, explore, and map all of the trails using GPS, and then place all the information on the website with free access. Upon completion, the quality of the notes, maps, photographs and directions will be such that anyone will be able to hike the trail with nothing more than our downloadable free trail notes. The use of compass or GPS will be strictly optional. The trail will take you through mountains, beaches, villages and cities, and will cross rivers, bypass lakes, and give the users the opportunity to explore every environment that Panama has to offer.
