What You Can Expect
Arenal Volcano One of the most active volcanoes in the Western Hemisphere, Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica?s crowning natural attractions. Your half-day volcanic adventure begins with morning pickup from your Arenal hotel and a short, scenic drive to Arenal Volcano National Park.
Follow your naturalist guide along a gorgeous network of trails that wind around the base of the volcano while learning about the area?s fascinating geologic history. Take in spectacular views of the crater, which rises 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above sea level and regularly emits puffs of smoke and streams of glowing lava.
The moderately challenging hike leads you through thick patches of rainforest and across hardened lava fields from the volcano?s previous eruptions. At the end of your expedition, relax on the return drive to Arenal, where you?ll be dropped off back at your hotel in the early afternoon.
