Volcano Boarding

Volcano Boarding in Nicaragua

Volcano boarding is the newest phenomenon to hit the adventure travel world. It is a multi-sport experience that combines the endurance of hiking with the nostalgia of sledding down an active volcano.


To get the adventure started, we’ll travel 1 hour from Leon to the base of Cerro Negro, Nicaragua’s youngest volcano. During our drive there, our bilingual guides will share with you the rich history and culture of Nicaragua.


Once there, your guides will introduce you to your gear before beginning the 45-minute hike up to the Summit. As you climb Cerro Negro, you'll see panoramic views of Nicaragua's stunning landscape. The excitement builds as you near the top and get closer to your unforgettable adventure! 


Once reaching the Summit, you’ll walk along ridge of the volcano until reaching it’s crater. You won’t see lava here, but you’ll be able to get incredible views and it’s the perfect spot for amazing photo ops. Then, it’s almost time to fly! First, your guide will give you a safety briefing before hitting the slope. You'll have the chance to become familiar with your volcano boarding gear and ask any questions you may have beforehand. 


There's no snow here, but you'll have the time of your life revisiting the days of sledding past. Your inner child will delight in the wonder of the moment as your inner rebel revels in the adrenaline and excitement of conquering a volcano. There's no feeling in the world quite like it, and it's definitely an experience that can only be had while volcano boarding with Summit Adventures Nicaragua.


You'll finish with your heart racing and you're eyes dancing from this once-in-a-lifetime volcanic adventure. Our guides will lead you back to headquarters in Leon. Don't go home without telling your friends that you sled down an active volcano in Nicaragua!
