- Hike to the summit of a volcano and zipline down
- See the astonishing wildlife of the rainforest
A fantastic Nicaragua gift experience for active travellers and the adventurous at heart, this day-trip offers an exciting alternative to most Managua sightseeing tours. Picked up from your hotel, you’ll drive with a guide out to the Mombacho Volcano Nature Reserve, near Granada, for a thrilling trek to the volcano’s summit. Mombacho is extinct, but it’s still an exhilarating feeling to walk around its crater and look out over Lake Nicaragua at the 365 islets that were formed by one eruption. Many species of bird, primate and reptile make their home in the rainforest here, and as you hike along you may see them, and will certainly hear them, in the trees all around you.
Descending from the volcano’s summit through the magical cloud forest, you’ll arrive at a zipline station. Strap in, because part two of your tour sees you zooming through the treetops, with amazing views of vast Lake Nicaragua and the historic city of Granada. Made up of 15 platforms, the zipline course will give you a jolt of adrenaline after all that walking, and hopefully sustain you for the journey back to Managua. With a bit of luck, you should arrive just in time for a stunning sunset over the bay!
