Telica Volcano Day Hike

Summit an active volcano in Nicaragua!

Vacations were made for adventure and what's more adventurous than hiking right up to the crater of an active volcano?


Your adventure begins at 2pm when we pick you up at your hotel to bring you to Telica Volcano, one of Nicaragua's most active volcanoes. During our drive there, your bilingual guide will share with you the rich history and culture of Nicaragua.

You will arrive in Telica just as the day begins to cool down. There will still be plenty of sun at this hour, however, so be sure to bring a hat and to pack plenty of sunscreen and water.


You'll spend between 2 to 3 hours overall summiting and descending the volcano. As you hike, you'll find yourself surrounded by nature and with an incredible bird's-eye-view of the landscape of Nicaragua. You're guide will point out local plant and animal life along the way as you make your way to the top of the trail.


As you summit the volcano, you'll walk right up to it's crater. Stand on the brink of one of nature's most powerful creations and revel in the moment, the adventure, and this most recent accomplishment of yours.


Head back down the volcano feeling both awed and proud. As you experience twighlight and the sun setting on the volcano, you'll feel the temperature drop and the night come to life.


Make sure you bring a flashlight--preferably a hands-free (head-mounted) one--so you can have full visibility of the trail ahead. You’ll return to Leon feeling proud of summiting one of Nicaragua’s most active volcanoes!
