Since 2001, Pure Trek Canyoning has been leading this new multi-sport adventure tour Canyoning by rappelling down waterfalls and hiking on beautiful trails in this spectacular rain forest slot canyon located right under the active Arenal Volcano in the town of La Fortuna. At Pure Trek we believe in focusing on one thing and doing it the best...Canyoning... that will rock your socks off!!! Family friendly...and adventurists too.

Thank you thank you! This tour was extremely well organized, thank you Alohi for encouraging us to sign up, we loved the entire day. We were picked up at the exact planned time and taken directly to the Pure Trek site. After a quick ride down to the "launch site" and a short safety briefing, we headed off. We weren't... More

An outstanding staff that made us feel comfortable through the entire adventure. The staff were friendly, happy, fun, and enjoyed what they were doing. Even the bumpy roads to get there were a joy. Thank you Delvis!

We took our two young children (8, 11), one who is not fond of heights. The staff was great and took any fear away. The first waterfall is the highest, which took off the edge for the rest. Our kids had a wonderful time and can't wait to try it again.

The company picked us (9 of us) up from the Springs early in the morning, we grabbed another 2 people in La Fortuna and headed up the mountain. The staff was friendly and professional. We had 5 teenage boys with us who lead the pack. There were about 51 of us in total.... The repelling and the monkey drop were... More

I've never been rapelling before so was pretty scared, standing at the top of the highest waterfall but as soon as I leant over the edge, everything the guides explained made perfect sense and I was away! All of the guides are amazing and add to the fun of the experience. There wasn't a single moment when I felt anything... More

My partner and I did the Pure Trek Canyoning tour a couple of days ago. My partner had a huge amount of fun and I did too (after I got over the fear!!). The tour guides are very friendly and informative. Once you get there you strap in to your gear (they give you rain coats) and line up for... More

Having no rapelling experience, turning up completely under dressed and unprepared and my boyfriend being scared of heights - we were on a bit of a back foot before we even hit the first waterfall. But we needn't have worried, Jonathon and the Pure Trek team were extremely professional and safety conscious. They got us set up with everything we... More

This is the tour to take if you are in Arenal. I was nervous about the rappels but the guides were all very nice and attentive. I felt at ease and very happy I did it. I said I see kids doing it so I can too. The thing is, the kids do not have to do anything, they lower... More

These guys know how to make you feel like you've experienced the adventure of a lifetime, while also putting in place some serious safety measures - all of the rappers have two ropes connecting you - one which you control the speed of your descent, and one which one of the PureTrek guides is holding on to - to be...
