See a volcano by twilight with an 8-hour excursion from León. Go hiking during the afternoon and enjoy the sunset and views of Telica Volcano, one of most active volcanoes in Nicaragua. Head up the crater to see the lava before making your way back down.
What to Expect
Visit the Telica Volcano, one of Nicaragua's most active volcanoes, on an 8-hour trip from León.
Depart at 14:00, walking for 3-4 hours until you reach the foot of the volcano. Then begin a 1-2 climb up to the crater.
The climb will be steep but not entirely difficult. Along the way you'll see plenty of native vegetation and have the opportunity to take in the views. Before reaching the crater, cross a beautiful valley with grass, trees, and stones.
At the top, watch and the sunset, a truly magnificent site. Then, once it is dark, hike the final short distance up to the crater to see the lava glowing in the twilight. It's a pretty spectacular sight.
