Overview

This is the most pure inland hike available in Costa Rica. Feel the excitement of going through rivers, hiking on beautiful mountain trails, going into the dense jungle for hours, having the most scenic volcano and lake views and experiencing the rural lifestyle in a totally secluded valley. Once we arrive at the mountain cabin you get thrown back in time cooking on a wood fire stove, enjoying the pure food and the company at the candle lit table. Having spend the night we get going to finish the leg of the hike that takes us to Monteverde. Tired but undoubtedly satisfied you can congratulate yourselve, your fellow hikers and your tour guide for having been part of this unforgettabe adventure.

Truly an unforgettable experience

Our guide Cristian was amazing; very knowledgeable, friendly and genuine. He and our host Seferino went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Beautiful breathe taking views surrounded by valleys, clouds mountains and volcanos. The streams were nice and refreshing, with guava trees and wild berries nearby. The jungle was so lush, but the slightly steep paths were well maintained. I can’t wait to do the hike again! I learned a lot about local trees and insects. Red Lava tours was very accommodating and helpful as well. They truly care about making sure people are well taken care of. I recommend anybody in good health/ fitness and proper footwear try it. I can not recommend this hike or tour company enough.
Beautiful hike

Great and hard experience with our great guide Cristian. We saw a lot of beautiful nature and the stay in the cabin was a wonderful experience. Expect to be challenged physically and you will get wet in the beginning of the tour.
Incredible experience!

I did this hike with just 3 total people: the guide, another tourist, and myself. It was definitely extreme! I thought I was in excellent shape, but this hike still had me panting. However, if you can brave the steep terrain, you get some of the most incredible views you'll ever see. Walking through the dense, lush Costa Rican rainforest with no one else around for miles is a lifechanging experience. The cabin we stayed at overnight didn't have electricity so we got to eat a delicious candlelit meal cooked over a fire. You really feel like you're in the wilderness. I would HIGHLY recommend this hike -- just bring lots of water and bug spray!
One of the best experiences of our vacation

Amazing. That's the perfect word to describe this trip! Although sometimes the hike was pretty rough, the overall trip was just outstanding. Our tourguide Christian was an amazing guy who knew very much about the nature, and was also very funny. We had the pleasure to be the only 2 persons on the trip, so he had all the time and attention for us. The views and the nature was stunning. We loved every single last bit of the trip. Even the part when we had to shower in ice cold water, with a very large spider next to the 'shower cabin'. At night the valley below the house you sleep in lights up like a night sky with hundreds of fireflies and luminescent beetles. And at the place where you sleep was a very sweet cat, blaquita, who happily jumped into our bed in the middle of the night to sleep in between us and protect us from the bugs and spiders. The night was not so comfortable, but what do you expect in a wooden cabin with no electricity. That's what you signed up for! All in all, amazing experience. 10 out of 10 would recommend to everyone who seeks adventure and doesn't mind to get out of their comfortzone. You need to have a pretty good stamina to do the hikes, the paths are so steep and you practically only go up haha. And bring long pants and long sleeves as well as the normal hiking gear. The horseflies can get pretty nasty.
IF YOU ARE HESITATING, BOOK IT NOW !

We booked the 2 days trek from la Fortuna to Monteverde with red lava tours. IF YOU ARE HESITATING, BOOK IT NOW ! We stayed four weeks in Costa Rica, saw a lot of the country and this was the highlight of our trip. Would easily take the 15 hours round-trip to the country to do it again. Our tour guide was Santiago who deserves a shout-out for his kind and knowledgeable guidance. Santiago clearly cares a lot about the environment and knows the area since childhood.
We met monkeys in the jungle, frogs, crickets, caterpillars, oropendula birds, many other species of birds and a little snake during this hike not to mention countless fruit trees and other flora.
Another great encounter at the end of the first day was with Seferino, owner of the mountain cabin we stayed at for the night. His hospitable welcome and contagious smile made the stay unforgettable.
I dream to go back to Costa Rica just to meet them again in the jungle.
