What to expect
Climb the highest volcano in Nicaragua and explore its giant crater! This one-day trek gets you to the top of the highest volcano in Nicaragua and back to Leon, all in the same day.The trek begins in the Quetzaltrekkers office at 3:30 AM. Enjoy a hearty breakfast with plenty of coffee and get on the road early to beat the heat. One hour in private transportation brings you to the base of the volcano. Arrive at the Finca of Don Candido, a local farmer with endless stories of growing coffee next to an active volcano. Stop for a quick bathroom break before beginning the ascent of steep slopes of San Cristóbal!As you pass above the tree line, the slopes reach an angle of almost 35 degrees until no trees remain on the black, volcanic gravel. After roughly four hours of strenuous hiking, reach the peak of Nicaragua's highest volcano at 1745m! Take in astounding views of the neighboring volcanoes as well as the northern plains and Pacific Ocean from the summit. If sight and crater stability permit, explore the numerous sulfur vents in the 600m wide crater area.The loose gravel that made the trek so challenging now rewards you with the fun of sliding and jumping down the volcano with giant leaps! Make your way back down to Don Candido's farm, eat a delicious hearty lunch, and return to León in the afternoon via private transportation to recover from a long, but unforgettable day!Please note: this is a challenging hike demanding a good level of fitness and some hiking experience.What's included:- Transportation - Entrance fees- Filtered water- Breakfast, lunch, and snacks
