Arenal Volcano Hike
Duration: 3 hours Super Easy
Why we love this tour
Explore the Arenal Volcano area, as it is a must see on your visit to Costa Rica!
- Hike customised to your preferences and expectations
- Explore enchanting trails in the rainforest and enjoy the beautiful views
- Learn about the Arenal Volcano history
Because we want to personalize your tour, Rainforest Explorers offers three different trails to explore Arenal Volcano parks: Arenal Volcano National Park, El Silencio Reserve, and Lava 1968 Reserve. They are all close to each other, so the type of forest and volcano view are similar. The idea is that you tell your guide your expectations for this volcano hike, and he will recommend the trail that is best for you based on your preferences.
It is very important to mention is that hiking to the volcano crater is forbidden by the Costa Rican laws - it is dangerous because of the volcano gases and the topography. Hikes and trails are at the volcano's base, but still provide stunning views and an informative history tour, which our local guides are happy to share with visitors. The hike around Arenal Volcano takes 2 to 2.3 hours, partially through historic lava flows and the other half through the rainforest on charming pathways at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano.
If a shower or rain happens before or during the tour, it continues as planned, remember is the rainforest and it should be expected. Unless there is a tropical storm in sight, then the tour may be cancelled or postponed (but we will contact you in advance to inform you).
