Extreme 2 Volcano Hike

AWESOME! Challienging but really rewarding hike. Long day, but full of activity. Santiago and Marcos were amazing guides and made sure everyone had a great time.

This might have been the best day of my life. It starts off as a very vertical, aggressive, nature walk and escalates from there. We hiked up the (dormant) volcano's lava flow paths. It was pretty intense. The best part, though, came after we summited the volcano. Once we got to the top, we had to climb down a system... More

Sonia at the front desk and her sons were very nice and she hooked us up with a good package. We checked other tour centers but found the best deal here. They even let us leave our luggage since we had to check out of our hotel. Very sweet people. Marcos was a tour guide and he was funny/crazy! They... More

I did the two volcano hike with Eric and Santiago and they helped me the entire hike. I was always in the back slipping and sliding and one of them was always by my side helping me along the way. I also did blue falls canyon with this company which is another hike but not as extreme and the staff... More

My family and I had an outstanding day with Red Lava tours. They have several options that will meet the needs of everyone. The women that works in the center speaks great English and explains all of the options clearly. My husband (who went mountain climbing in Nepal) was up for the challenge of the Cerro Chato hike and really... More

We did the 2 volcano hike. Its a full day tour. It was explained very well by the owner in what we could expect. Be sure though to have a backpack and water for a full day. Lunch will be provided. The tour itself was great fun and we had great guides in Marcus and Carlos. As always with nature... More

We did the Two Volcano tour and is it ever worth the money! It is honestly a FULL day of different activities. I did not find the hike very physically challenging, but it was so much fun! One of my favourite hikes I've ever done. The Green Lagoon is gorgeous, and despite the rain, we all had a phenomenal time.... More

I really enjoyed the half day tour with Daniel and Mauricio. It was very informative and jam packed with the sights of La Fortuna. The nighttime dip in the hot springs river was my favourite part. Great way to end the tour!

We ordered extreme jungle hike tour from Red Lava and I can assure you that it was one of the most unforgettable experiences in our lives. Four of us traveled to La Fortuna area and were recommended by some locals to do the tour. You hike over volcano, swim in extinct crater lake, then waterfall and finished the night with... More
