Before the active period of 1968, a lavish canopy of vegetation covered the Arenal Volcano.

People that climbed Arenal’ s summit related that inside the crater there were big trees and at night, they slept in places where there was some heat due to small steam outlets.

Right now the green area is located at the east side of the Mountain, and other little green parts can be seen on the north and the south of the volcano.

The Hike begins in one the trails close to the volcano, Trail, this trail will take us through the forest over recent lava flows and the area destroyed in 1968 now in the process of regeneration. We are going to be on this trail for about 2 ½ hours.

Arenal Volcano is an active andesitic (meaning that the rock has been crystallized from silicate minerals) stratovolcano in north-western Costa Rica, where Arenal is the youngest and most active of all the mountains. It was presumed extinct until July 29, 1968 when an earthquake caused it to erupt, after approximately 400 years of dormancy.

Arenal rises 1657 m above sea level and overlooks Lake Arenal; both are part of Arenal Volcano National Park.
