Arenal Volcano Hike & Hot Springs

Few sites in Costa Rica inspire more respect and admiration than Arenal Volcano. At 5437 feet, its tall and conical shape stands imposing over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remains Costa Rica’s most active volcano for the past 43 years. Its history is charged with eruptions - both major and minor - that have intimately affected the region and the people who live here. This tour will allow you to enjoy the most extraordinary views of Arenal Volcano during a gentle hike along the lower slopes of the colossus. The walk begins in one of the trails close to the volcano and continues through the forest until reaching the area destroyed in its first eruption, back in 1968. This tour takes approximately 2 1/2 hours.After the hike, a relaxing soak into the natural mineral waters of the hot springs will finish a perfect day. Thanks to geothermal activity beneath Arenal, the area surrounding the volcano is home to a number of natural hot springs. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth’s core. Once heated, the waters rise to surface, aking with them minerals found in the earth’s rocky stratus and it flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls and cascades, filling in the pools throughout the few resorts that offers this relaxable experience!

Included
Entrance fee, dinner, guide and transfers.

What to bring?
Camera, binoculars, light sweater, long pants, raincoat, hiking shoes, sun lotion, insect repellent and swimsuit.
