Combine three adventurous activities in a single tour: a hike to Arenal Volcano, visit the Hanging Bridges, and exploration of La Fortuna Waterfall. This 10-hour tour from La Fortuna, perfect for nature lovers, includes hiking and swimming amidst Costa Rica’s beautiful natural scenery. Hotel pickup and drop-off included.
What You Can Expect
The tour starts with a hotel pickup followed by a 30-minute drive to the National Park of Arenal where you will start your activity, a 2.5-hour hike to the base of Arenal Volcano. The hike is fairly easy and most of it is over flat ground. The goal is to arrive at a Dry lava field from 1992 eruption (this part of the trail is rocky), see it, talk about it and give you all the history about the Arenal Volcano.
Afterward, you will be driven for another 30 minutes to reach La Fortuna Waterfall. The hike to the base of the waterfall has about 500 steps (which you will need to climb back up). Once at the base, you will have some time to swim and enjoy the waterfall.
You will spend about 2.5 hours hiking in a primary rainforest, where you will cross about 16 hanging bridges called the Mistico Hanging Bridges. This hike in a large forest with nothing compared to the one in the national park of Arenal, so enjoy it as much as you can….. and remember it’s a Rainforest so expect rain, and bring your rain gear.
After the tour, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
