Overview
This tour will simply amaze you, it starts with a short boat ride from the Arenal Lake Dam to the entrance of “La Península”, this path will take us through the forest in the most recent national park trails area, we will hike with amazing views of the Arenal Lake and enjoy fantastic lookouts, this trail is special for birdwatching and nature photography. Then we’ll go to areas that were once destroyed by volcanic activity and are now in the process of regeneration, a hike through the “Coladas Trail” will take us all the way to experience what no long ago were lava flows. Nature, geology and volcano history all in the hands of our professional guides. Arenal Volcano before the active period started on 1968 was covered by a lavish canopy of vegetation, the people who climbed Arenal’ s summit told that inside the crater there were big trees and they slept in places where there was some heat due to small steam outlets.
