Arenal Volcano Extension

Visit Costa Rica’s Most Dramatic Landmark & Stay at Famous Arenal Observatory Lodge
3 Days From $1450
Arenal Volcano towers over the rain forest that surrounds Lake Arenal at the mountain's base. The most famous of Costa Rica's many volcanoes, Arenal demonstrates the small country's location on the edge of two tectonic plates, among the most dynamic such junctures on Earth. Spend three days exploring the region's fascinating geology and biodiversity while based directly opposite the volcano at Arenal Observatory Lodge—the closest accommodation to the volcano. Learn about the area's natural history on guided walks over the extensive network of private trails that cross lava flows and lace the lush forest. Look for wildlife as you traverse hanging bridges in the canopy, with the volcano looming in the background. Birds call out from the treetops, while a host of creatures creates a natural chorus to serenade your stay.
