Overview
This tour offers incredible value for La Fortuna visitors who want to sample the best the area has to offer in just one day. A hanging bridges canopy tour, waterfall swim, Arenal Volcano hike, and hot spring visit are all combined into a single easily-managed booking, topped off by two included meals and private transportation with pickup and drop-off from La Fortuna.
Highlights
  • Combine classic Costa Rica outdoor activities into a single tour
  • Manage all activities under a single booking
  • Swim, hike on Arenal Volcano, cross the rain forest canopy, and more
  • Visit top La Fortuna and Arenal area attractions in just a day
  • Opportunities to spot plenty of wildlife enhanced by your guide
  • Sit-down lunch and buffet dinner included
  • Pickup and drop-off from downtown La Fortuna included
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from downtown La Fortuna. By early morning, start hiking down a 2-mile (3 kilometer) trail that crosses nine fixed bridges and six suspension bridges, offering incredible views of the rain forest. Though it feels adventurous, the bridges are designed for comfortable crossings. Then, continue to the La Fortuna Waterfall. Walk roughly 15 minutes from the trailhead to reach the falls; swim and snap photos upon arrival. Lunch at Lava Rocks Cafe follows (included). At 3pm, begin hiking on Arenal Volcano. The exact trail is chosen upon arrival for the greatest chance of seeing lava, as the flows vary day to day. Your guide helps you spot plants and animals as you climb the volcano, and you watch the sunset from a vista point at the end of the hike. Linger until dark to see glowing chunks of lava. Conclude your tour with a dip in either the Tabacon or Baldi Hot Springs followed by a buffet dinner (included). Return to your original departure point at the end of the tour.
