One of the best combination tours in Arenal area: hanging bridges, safari river float, La Fortuna Waterfalls, hiking the volcano and the hot water springs - all surrounded of incredible wildlife and vegetation.
What to Expect
The tour starts with a visit to the hanging bridges, consisting of a hike on a 1.9 mile (3.1 km) trail where you can enjoy the rainforests, flora and fauna. The trail crosses nine fixed bridges and six suspension bridges, and is laid out at a maximum grade of seven degrees, so that anyone can walk it. Alternatively, you can visit an amazing safari boat full of wildlife. The next stop is the La Fortuna Waterfall.
From the trailhead you will hike approximately 15 minutes before reaching this majestic waterfall, where you can swim or just enjoy its beauty. Lunch is next and Lava Rocks Restaurant is the port of call. Following lunch, you’ll have the opportunity to rest until 3.00 pm, before embarking on the volcano hike.
You can then choose one of several trails, depending on which you will see a wide variety of plants and wildlife. On the Toucans trail you will have the opportunity to walk on a lava flow, and at the end of each trail, you'll watch the sunset, waiting until dark in hopes of seeing and hearing the glowing chunks of lava tumbling down the side of the mountain - a sight you won’t soon forget.
As an addition, you may have the choice of a relaxing dip in the world-famous Hot Springs followed by a buffet dinner.
Highlights consist of a visit to the marvelous Arenal Hanging Bridges and the safari boat tour. Enjoy the beautiful Río Fortuna waterfall and take a visit to La Fortuna Town. Walk in the Private Reserve of Lava 1968 to assess the effects of volcanic activity and first lava flow.
