Arenal Volcano Hike Tour

Climb the cone

Known worldwide for its near perfect cone shape, Arenal volcano has become a must-see destination when holidaying in Costa Rica. Its volcanic activity and the surrounding natural beauty make this a very exciting and rewarding hiking tour around the trails of the national park that lasts for around two and a half hours.

You can still see patches of green on the northern and southern parts of the volcano but the most fertile side is the east. You will begin your tour in one of the closest trails around the volcano, which will allow you to see up close the area that was destroyed in the 1968 eruption and is now regenerating, as well as the forest which is criss crossed by recent lava flows.
