Are you ready for the most authentic & extreme Costa Rica hike? How would you like to swim in the crater lake of Cerro Chato, cross hanging bridges, visit a waterfall, explore the Arenal Volcano Observatory, enjoy a therapeutic facial and finish the day with a cocktail while you reward yourself in the Arenal hot springs? Sound good? Then strap on your hiking shoes and don´t forget your swimsuit! Our Two Volcano Extreme Hike is an unforgettable experience that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment and memories for a life time.
Your morning starts with a short warm-up for the hike walking along the flat pasture land before entering the dense jungle surrounding the Cerro Chato Volcano. Enjoy this warm-up time and be sure to stretch a bit, because the hike is about to get extreme! The next two hours are a steep jungle climb to the summit of the Chato Volcano, but once you reach the top the sense of accomplishment is well worth it! After reaching the crater edge, you will hike down and enjoy swimming in the refreshing lake waters of the extinct Chato Volcano.
Here we will stop and enjoy a carefully prepared lunch to help restore your energy before we continue hiking down the opposite side of Chato Volcano. Breathe easier as the hike flattens out to pasture land again as we head towards the Arenal Volcano Observatory Park. Our path takes us across two hanging bridges and visit the Danta River and waterfall with the option to swim there as well. Feel free to ask your knowledgeable guide any questions that you may have along the hike, they will be sharing their expert knowledge of the importance of the local eco-system and wildlife we encounter along the way.
Our Two Volcano Extreme Hike culminates when we reach the the Arenal Observatory Lodge. Our hike ends with a panoramic view of the Arenal Volcano on the deck of the observatory and watching the sun sink over Lake Arenal. Here you can learn more about the Arenal Volcano in the small museum and also reflect on the extreme hike you just accomplished!
Transportation will be ready to take us back down into La Fortuna, but first we will stop to soak our weary muscles in the natural hot springs. Deck yourself out with a volcanic mud facial and a complimentary cocktail as you wind down from the most adventurous day you have spent in Costa Rica. You´ll be back at your hotel around 8 pm with memories of a lifetime!
