Arenal Observatory Hike

After picking you up from your hotel, we’ll start our journey towards the Arenal volcano. Our route will take us to the highest part of the volcano, and from there you’ll be able to take in the incredible views of not just the volcano, but also the namesake lake. 

As we hike, you’ll be able to admire the volcano from different perspectives, and we’ll explore gardens and forests and cross hanging bridges until we reach a waterfall and the River Danta.

At all times, you’ll be accompanied by a naturalist guide, who’ll give you information about the area and its native animals. If you’re lucky, you’ll even be able to see some of these, such as the monkeys and the tropical birds. One of our missions will be to try and spot the famous red-eyed tree frog.  

Next, we’ll enter the Observatory museum, where you’ll find out more about the history of the Arenal volcano. Then, our tour will finish on a high as we take a trip to the natural thermal river where you can take a dip, bathe in the volcanic mud and enjoy a typical Costa Rican cocktail.

Once the tour has come to an end, we’ll drop you back at your hotel.

Important Information

The tour includes hotel pick up and drop off from the main hotels around Arenal. If your hotel is further than La Fortuna or the main road leading to the Arenal volcano, the local tour provider will get in touch regarding a convenient meeting point.
