To start the tour you will visit the hanging bridges option consists of a hike on a 1.9 mile (3.1 km) trail on which 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. Our next stop is the La Fortuna Waterfall.

Following lunch you’ll have the opportunity to rest until 3 pm before embarking on the volcano hike. We will choose one of several trails depending on which side of the volcano the lava is coming down and on all the trails you will see a wide variety of plants and wildlife. On the Tucanes trail you will have the opportunity to walk on a lava flow and on all the trails at the end of the hike you will 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.
You’ll end the day with your choice of a relaxing dip in the world-famous Tabacón Hot Springs.
