You will hike through lush rain forest and pasture lands, and witness spectacular scenic views. The tour begins at the Observatory Lodge. This is a transition forest area where you will begin to see the Tropical Rain Forest (taller trees, dense vegetation and rich biodiversity). Then we will witness the Cloud Forest; see epiphytes, ferns, orquids, sometimes spot toucans and birds, very similar to Monteverde?s cloud forest characteristics.
After a little rest we begin to descend to La Fortuna waterfall, this is the result of an emerging area of the formation of the Cerro Chato and Arenal Volcanoes.
After you arrive at Fortuna?s waterfall you will enjoy a delicious box lunch including sandwiches and fruit. Your reward, at the bottom, if you wish, is a swim in the magnificent and powerful, la Fortuna Waterfall.
