Full description
Visit the Arenal Volcano and soak up its surroundings during your stay in La Fortuna. Enjoy a 3.5-hour rainforest natural history walk, following your naturalist guide through the El Silencio Mirador nature reserve. Listen to the lava flows and catch impressive views of the Arenal Volcano.

On this exciting tour, hike along trails within primary rainforest near Arenal National Park. During the hike, it is possible to see a great variety of flora and fauna characteristic of the area including old growth trees, such as Ceiba, Trumpet, and Guarumo trees. Walk through the lava fields of 1992 and also enter areas that were once devastated by the fury of the volcanic eruption of 1968.

While in the park, it is possible to listen to the constant activity of the volcano with its lava flows and sporadic eruptions. On clear days, you will have a magnificent view of the impressive Arenal Volcano, the Arenal Lagoon, and the extinct volcano, Cerro Chato. By night, lava flows are visible down the side of the Arenal Volcano in streaks of red, hot, molten lava.
