Arenal Volcano Tour

Arenal Volcano Tour

The Arenal Volcano is, without a doubt, the main attraction of La Fortuna. It stands majestically with a near-perfect cone 1,633 meters (5,357 ft.) high! That is over a mile in height! This walking tour through the National Park or the Arenal 1968 Trailhead will allow you to get close enough to walk across the solidified lava flows from past eruptions. Along the way, you will observe abundant flora and some fauna as we walk through the regenerating forest. Your naturalist guide will provide interesting information about the volcano’s history and the different eruptive phases it has had, from its “awakening” in 1968 and its move into a semi-dormant state in 2010.

Afterwards, you can choose to add a visit to one of several popular volcanic hot springs to relax and end your day in style. A meal at the hot springs is also optional.
