All reviews lava fields great hike national park nice walk walking stick longer hike red route previous hikes observatory hotel moderate difficulty cloudy morning clear skies moderate hike hiking boots great view of the lake rocky terrain bring lots of water
Am not sure I'd call it a hike but a long walk around the base and up a little way towards the volcano. I suspect much of the enjoyment depends on the quality of the guide and we were fortunate, our guide spoke good English...More

After looking at reviews, we decided to vist Arenal 1968 instead of the Arenal Nat'l Park. Most people have said that 1968 is kept better, the view of the Arenal volcano is closer, and the park is open later than the Nat'l Park.
This is a hike that is good for everyone, from children to seniors. Not difficult but still invigorating. Walking sticks were provided, which I had not used before but found to be helpful. Saw lava rocks, great views of the volcano & Lake Arenal. Guide...More
We loved hiking the lava trails and did the longer hike twice during our visit. Beautiful scenery, trail was challenging but not too intense. Saw snakes, lizards, frogs, birds and leaf cutter ants. Would recommend as an adventure with a workout. The trails are well...More
We did both the national park and this trail. This one is more difficult with some steeper ascends and descends but nothing over the top. My kids did the trail in running shoes in the rain. Hands down better views of the lava fields....
We did our trekking under the heavy rain, however it's a nice activity, easy to do even with children (under good weather condition of course).
Very well organized, people working there were very nice, smiling and helpful.
I believe there are no guides locally to pick. We pre arranged a tour with a guide. Although it is easily marked and you can walk by yourself, the guide was a wealth of information and that really made the trail amazing.
