Join us on this guided trip to one of the most famous volcanoes in Central America. Leave your hotel at 2:30 pm in order to reach El Silencio Private Reserve at 3:00 pm. Drive to the point closest to the Arenal Volcano as permitted to travel by car. From there, we will begin a 1km walk along the trail of volcanic rocks, rated moderately difficult, to reach the observation point that is the as close to the base of the volcano as you can legally get.

At the observation point, your guide will provide interesting information regarding the volcano, its periods of activities and the details of its major eruption in 1968. Enjoy the opportunity to see the incredible views of the Arenal Volcano and Arenal Lake from the observation point. Start your downhill journey. Follow the same trail all the way to the starting point.

Head for the regenerating forest and a small patch of primary rainforest at the base of the Arenal Volcano during the next stage of your hike. This trail is about 1.5km in length and, with a little luck, you will have the opportunity to discover a large variety of flora and fauna, including toucans, wild turkeys, orioles, wild boars, snakes and monkeys.

After the three and a half hour trip is over, your driver will be waiting for you with a delicious snack of tropical fruits before returning you to your hotel in La Fortuna to enjoy the remainder of your stay.

“This is an absolutely incredible tour -- our guide Jason was both very informative and very helpful. He explained the history of the Arenal volcano to us, we took a short hike a small part of the way up the mountain, and then went back down to look at wildlife in the rainforest. We saw spider monkeys, which Jason said are a pretty rare sight, and then a red curacao just walked out onto the trail in front of us! It was an incredible feeling to just be seeing all these animals spontaneously on a nature hike.

Speaking of hikes, it is important to be aware that this tour is somewhat physically demanding. There are no extreme parts, just some strenuous walking over very uneven ground, but I think the tour description could do a better job of emphasizing the challenge. At the same time, the tour is extremely convenient in terms of picking you up and dropping you off at your desired location, whether a hotel, hot springs, or somewhere else. Overall, I strongly recommend the Arenal Volcano trip to anyone who is into volcanoes and wildlife and plans to visit the Arenal area.”
