What you'll do

This experience takes place within a private estate through conservation areas, surrounded by primary and secondary forest, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy excellent panoramic views of the Arenal Volcano and the rainforest. This tour is recommended for adults and children over 9 years old.
With our healthy and well-trained horses we begin this incredible experience, from the stable for 3 hours through the trails in the rainforest enjoying beautiful views. Here we will have the possibility to see also monkeys, sloths, coatis, birds such as toucans, turkeys, hawks, etc.
During the tour, we will provide the tour participants with important information about the different species of animals and vegetation found along the way.
In case the weather is adverse, we can take another option of a quieter path that is to the Arenal River, both incredible places for wildlife.

We are a team of friends who do adventures in La Fortuna and its surroundings. We all love nature and share our journeys with tourists. Our team is made up of Maricela, Daniel, Guido, Flavio (in reception and coordination) Steven and Jorge will be the guides. I am in charge of the operation and reservations.
Everyone's safety and everyone's enjoyment is essential to us. Being in the forest on horseback, going down the rivers, or going up to the ancient lava is our daily desire.
We all enjoy every moment and we see ourselves reflected with those who accompany us.

Where you'll be

This activity is carried out starting in the stable where we will have an explanatory talk. From there we take a path that will take us through grazing areas. We will pass by the shore of a natural lake with very beautiful views.
Then we enter the tropical forest until we reach the base of the Arenal Volcano. Upstairs we leave the horses and walk to see the old lava flows.
There is an option of swimming pools at the end of the tour.

Really enjoyed this tour! Beautiful views and the tour guides were very entertaining and accommodating. Helping with photos and teaching the even the most novice riders how to feel comfortable with their horses.

Jorge was wonderful on the way to the volcano and back. He made me feel very comfortable and shared lots of great information about Costa Rica.

Very nice experience for adventure and horse lovers :) I wish we could have more history about the volcano itself but the experience is worth it.

The best horseback riding experience I’ve ever had. We were able to trot and gallop with our horses throughout the ride. Jorge was a very kind guide and I enjoyed myself a ton.

The horses are so well trained. Our guide was sweet and fun, had great energy and was easy to talk to. We took the river tour which we were told was a little easier than the Arenal trails. The trails were definitely easy enough for beginners but not a lot of them felt like walking through the jungle on trails. More like walking horses along gravel and paved roads. Still beautiful; still worth it. Just know that the river tour is not really a jungle experience. It was such a great way to experience the beauty of La Fortuna however and also we laughed and laughed when the horses galloped. I loved hearing my family laugh like that. Best time. Ever.
