Escape into Arenal Volcano National Park’s natural wonderland
If you dream of an escape into nature and adventure, an Arenal volcano tour in Costa Rica could be your perfect match. The Arenal Volcano National Park is one of the most important and inspirational nature reserves in all of Central America.
La Fortuna, set right beneath the brooding volcano, is a charming Costa Rican town that offers easy access to nearby cascading waterfalls, thermal baths and a wealth of outdoor activities nearby.
The Arenal Volcano National Park covers almost 30,000 acres of verdant cloud forest, tropical forest and barren lava fields. These are all cut through by wild rivers and packed with exotic wildlife. You can follow the park’s series of hanging bridges for incredible forest views during an Arenal volcano tour in Costa Rica.
To appreciate the sheer scale of the volcano, take a hike around its base as part of your tour. There are plenty of other adventurous activities to enjoy too. You could paddle a kayak across Arenal Lake, or try your hand at windsurfing. The Venado Caves are perfect for exploring, or you could take a trek on horseback to the beautiful La Fortuna Waterfall.
The stunning biodiversity of the area is showcased at the Arena Natura Park, an ecological reserve where you can see endemic frog and snake species amid the beautiful plant life. And at the end of the day return to the Arenal Kioro, the hotel hand-picked by A&K for its excellent accommodation and the very best views of the Arenal Volcano.
