This tour visits two of the most important places in Arenal. The tour includes hiking, swimming, exploring, and cultural experiences.
You’ll visit the Arenal Volcano National Park and learn about both the history and biodiversity of this incredible park. You’ll be guided along trails, one of which winds through a lava flow that was created in the wake of a 1992 eruption. As you walk through the park’s rainforests, be on the lookout for birds, monkeys, and other animals. You’ll enjoy wonderful views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano.
A visit to the La Fortuna Waterfall is a must when visiting Arenal. The waterfall is large and impressive and surrounded by lush trees. You’ll descend some 500 steps to reach the waterfall. Once here, you’ll have the opportunity to swim, take photos, or simply enjoy the scenery.
Between these activities, you’ll enjoy a delicious typical lunch. Bottled water and fruit are provided at other points during the tour.
The Arenal Volcano National Park packs all of Costa Rica's allure into one place: incredible hiking, magnificent views, abounding wildlife and the country's most active volcano. Hiking and horseback riding tours allow you to get up close and personal with this incredible area, which encompasses close to 30,000 acres (12,000 ha) and extends into eight different life zones. Overlooking everything is the imposing Arenal Volcano which sits right inside this wonderful park.

The tour was good and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was a bit disappointed that the volcano hike was very short as it was getting dark. Not sure if we ran out of time and why. The organic farm/restaurant visited for lunch was a highlight. Ran by a beautiful and welcoming family, great food and amazing views of the birds on the feeder. Even a sloth! Amazing
great tour, although it should be noted this is a lot of walking and steps, so folks need to be up for it. the lunch at a local farm was great.
