About
This is the most pure inland hike available in Costa Rica. Feel the excitement of going through rivers, hiking on beautiful mountain trails, going into the dense jungle for hours, having the most scenic volcano and lake views and experiencing the rural lifestyle in a totally secluded valley. Once we arrive at the mountain cabin you get thrown back in time cooking on a wood fire stove, enjoying the pure food and the company at the candle lit table. Having spend the night we get going to finish the leg of the hike that takes us to Monteverde. Tired but undoubtedly satisfied you can congratulate yourselve, your fellow hikers and your tour guide for having been part of this unforgettabe adventure.

Unbelievably Beautiful and Exciting
Jan 2021 • Friends
This hike is absolutely Incredible and our guide Carlos was amazing! If you're looking for something off the beaten path then this hike is perfect for you. After two weeks in Costa Rica this was without a doubt my favorite experience. To get to the trail you need to cross a river so expect to get wet (also it's a rainforest so you'll get wet regardless). The hike is through difficult terrain and pretty steep at times but it's definitely manageable for anyone at a moderate/high fitness level. The cabin you stay at is very isolated but comfortable enough to get a good night's rest. The meals are prepared on a fire and surprisingly good! If you enjoy hiking and want to really experience the jungle this tour is an absolute must do!!

Hi Perrina, You are among the few brave ones that have enjoyed this amazing hike. The real of the grid hike through untouched jungle taking you high up into the mountains. There is no more authentic way of getting to Monteverde than on foot. The cabin is far away from civilization and has the best unspoiled views. Its primitive and back to basics and it gives you the best posibilty to totaly disconnect from todays digital overload. Glad you had a good time with your guide, you spent almost two days together so a good click is important. .

Much work, but well worth it.
I was the only person on this tour. Julian had an enthusiastism for his environment and his job that one could not fake.

This is not easy hike. Julian told me that on the 1st day we traveled 7 km. If you had asked me, we traveled 30.The elevation gain was extreme as we walked through the rain forrest. The views were awesome. And there was so much life around us. There were so many shades of lush green.

We spent the night in a cabin. This cabin is a marvel. I simply do not know how the materials needed for construction got to the location. This is not a cabin for those who want 5 star comfort. But it certainly served the function and Julian prepared a spectacular meal over the open fire.

The hike on the 2nd day was a little more tame. But we still had spectacular views and it was still never easy.

If you are like me, a beginning hiker who wanted to try an overnight hike with an expert, this is the hike for you. I highly recommend it.

Great experience
Nov 2019
I did several trips with Red Lava, the Arenal volcano walk, white water rafting, the Chocolate tour & the extreme hike to Monteverde. They were all well organised with friendly, informative English speaking guides. I found Sonia extremely helpful, she helped me plan my itinerary for the rest of my time in Costa Rica. You can also negotiate discounts if you do several adventures with them.
