Volcano Maderas

Only for the truly adventurous and physically-fit, the 8-10 hour guided tour up the dormant Volcano Maderas takes you up through the Maderas Cloud Forest Reserve to the volcano’s lagoon-filled crater, 1,300 meters above sea level. Unrivalled views from various lookout points and exotic tropical flora highlight this daylong tour. Breakfast will be provided for you between 6 and 6:30 in the morning. You will then depart LA OMAJA with your guide at 7 in the morning and hike up the volcano, stopping at several different look-out points along the way. Once at the top, if time permits, you can climb down into the crater of the volcano Maderas and wet your feet in the icy waters of its crater lagoon. The duration of the entire trip will vary depending on your pace and physical condition. The 7AM departure will get you back to the hotel anywhere from 1 in the afternoon to 5 in the evening. Please note this tour is very rigorous and only recommended for experienced hikers and the physically fit. For people who don’t feel up to the physical challenge of the full hike to the top of Maderas, there is the option of a guided hike to the first lookout point. This is a much more modest hike, taking about a 3-4 hours roundtrip.
