This hike in Arenal Volcano National Park will sate your appetite for adventure. Suitable for active and fit travelers, this challenging excursion reveals the volcanic landscapes of Cerro Chato, Arenal Volcano. Trekking with a guide means you won’t worry about getting lost and you’ll have a better chance of spotting monkeys and tropical birds. Plus, you’ll end with a cocktail at some hot springs.

After hotel pickup in La Fortuna, you’ll travel to Arenal Volcano National Park and embark on a challenging hike to Cerro Chato and Arenal Volcano. During the trek, you’ll pass lava-carved landscapes, see some of the Arenal Hanging Bridges;,and, with luck, spot native tropical birds and monkeys.

Continue to the Arenal Observatory Lodge to learn more about the park’s geology and absorb sweeping views of the national park. After watching the sunset, travel to back by car and soak aching muscles in some nearby hot springs, where you’ll enjoy a cocktail.

The tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
