Arenal Volcano, La Fortuna Waterfall and Hotsprings

Our day begins…After picking you up we go on a short drive to get to our departure point. Here we hop on a tractor cart that takes us up hill to a panoramic viewpoint.  Having seen our objective in the distance we start a trek down a jungle staircase. Halfway down we reach a high suspension bridge that needs to be conquered to continue.  The trail leads us further down the huge canyon that was shaped by a volcanic mega eruption. Coming to the end of the canyon the spectacular La Fortuna waterfall awaits you. Be amazed by the lush vegetation on its 70mtr high walls, the huge Vulcanic rocks at its foot and the amount of water splashing down in its massive pool. We take time to bask in its beauty and the brave ones can go out and take a super refreshing dip. Getting back to the viewpoint we walk down to the little village of the Maluku Indians. Seated in their Palenke (main house) we enjoy a rest while listening to an interesting story about their culture, art and history. Having been active for some hours the moment has come to enjoy a warm typical lunch. Next to the restaurant there is a butterfly garden and frog pond you can explore till food is served. Reenergized we take a 15minute ride to the park at the foot of the Arenal volcano. We start on a trail through primary forest where you can see big trees with huge roots. Besides a variety of birds the forest is host to Monkeys as well as Sloth´s and Coati’s. Out of the forest, we cross farmland till we get to a green lake. Passing a cemetery of the eruption victims we reach the wall of Lava from the ´68 eruption. Going up some steep steps we arrive on top of the huge mass of lava rocks. Following a trail that is cut out through the rocks we climb our way up the slopes of the Arenal. Reaching the highest Viewpoint that exist around the Volcano we can absorb the most spectacular panoramic views. Looking around it just gets better, Lake Arenal, Jungle, the Valley, Lava fields and most of all the  Arenal that towering over you     To finish the tour in the most relaxing way, you will be taken to the natural hotspring resort. You can relax in its soothing warm water for about an hour and you can enjoy a complementary cocktail.  Around 7pm we will take you back to your hotel.

Hike from La Fortuna to Monteverde

Let us take you on a hiking adventure through the Mountains that lay between La Fortuna and the cloud Forest of Monteverde. After an exciting river crossing, we follow the Caño Negro river through a beautiful valley Going gets tougher when we leave the river behind us and make our way into the mountains. Under the cover of the big trees we follow an old trail only used by locals. Hiking at this afternoon hour we have a good chance of seeing wildlife.    Leaving the forest after about tree hours, we reach an amazing viewpoint. Trees that are full ecosystems, lush farmland, the cloudy Mountains, the Arenal lake and volcano merge into a breathtaking panorama.    With the sun setting we go down a steep trail that take us into a completely secluded valley. Having seen our destination on the far flank of the mountain we take a last dash to our shelter for the night. This rustic wooden cabin and the wide jungle and volcano views it offers will leave you amazed.    At this remote paradise we are fully disconnected and experience, back to basic mountain style living. Getting settled we join to prepare a wood stove meal. At the candle lit large table we sit to enjoy the food, the company and the experience till the inevitable fatigue sends us to our bunks.      Early in the morning we have a good typical breakfast and a shower with fresh mountain water. Reenergized we hike our way out of the valley. Getting to the main trail we either hike our way towards Santa Elena/Monteverde or you can have a horse waiting for you and ride there. On this last part of our experience you hike/ride over the Costa Rican countryside roads surrounded by spectacular cloud forest. After not seeing any other person for about 20 hours we slowly make our way back into civilization. Getting to Santa Elena we take you to the place where your luggage is waiting for you. Concluding our adventure, we thank you for the pleasure of sharing this beautiful experience with you.
