1. Arenal Volcano National Park Guided Hike

We’ll start the tour off by picking you up at your hotel and driving to the entrance of the Arenal National Park.

You can use the facilities and read up on the history of the area before your guided walk. Then we’ll hike through well-groomed, easy trails that skirt the base of the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal Area.

This part of the Arenal Volcano had sections that were devastated by the lava flow of 1968, so some areas have very little vegetation.

If you are interested, you may ask your guide to show you the dried lava flow from a smaller eruption that happened in 1992.

This guided walk of the Arenal Volcano National Park or 1968 Trail provides perfect photo opportunities and magnificent views of the impressive Arenal Volcano, the pristine Lake Arenal and the extinct volcano Cerro Chato.

We have chosen the appropriate trails (Arenal Volcano National Park or the 1968 Trail) for each tour time for better wildlife viewing. There are parts of each trail that has forested areas where your nature guide will try to spot birds, monkeys and other animals in their natural habitat.

Kids, families and all nature lovers enjoy this Arenal Volcano tour for the gorgeous views and opportunities for wildlife viewing.

2. Horseback Riding to La Fortuna Waterfall

This fun tour is a combination of horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful scenery by Arenal Volcano on the way to the La Fortuna Waterfall. Sturdy Costa Rican horses will take you through pastures, forest and hills to the entrance of the waterfall. The views of the Arenal valley and tropical forest are spectacular. The stunning La Fortuna Waterfall plunges more than 65 meters (213 feet) through dense rainforest into a mist-shrouded pool. At the waterfall, you will leave the horses and hike 300 steps down a steep trail to the base of the waterfall. The pool right beneath the falls is too rough for swimming, but there are several perfect swimming holes a little bit downstream. Afterward, you will hike back up to the top and ride back to the stables.

Get spectacular views of the Arenal Volcano and the green countryside as you travel by horseback to the 140-foot Río Fortuna waterfall. Transfer to the hotel after the tour to La Fortuna Waterfall.
