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.

Erick at Volcano Lake Adventures Tour was great. He's a California native, so he's totally bilingual, and a very affable guy. Our tour guide, Wilmer, was beyond excellent. It was so heartwarming to hear him speak with such knowledge, pride and love for his beautiful country. A

We decided on this tour to be able to see as much as possible in a single day, to allow us time for other activities and this was definitely the right choice. Our 12 and 9 year old daughters did the whole day with us, without a single complaint (until the very end). Hanging

The Hanging Bridges hike was crowded, but our guide, Marco, was great and was able to show us quite a few animals. The falls hike was pretty, but also crowded and fast, probably could have done this one on our own. Loved the Arenal Volcano hike. We got very lucky with the
