Extreme Arenal and Cerro Chato Volcano Hike in La Fortuna
From US$68.00

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, and La Fortuna Waterfall. 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.

What to Expect

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.

Amazing Day!

We did a private horseback/guided hike to La Fortuna Waterfall where we swam, meluka tribe, Cerro Chato, and Zipline Canopy Tour. It was perfect! We never crossed the same path twice. The activities were done at Arenal Mundo and the guides were wonderful!
