Tour information

After picking you up at your hotel in La Fortuna, the trip will begin from the stables of Los Lagos resort. Then, a local guide will instruct you the right way for you to ride a horse; we are going to ride approximately 5 miles into a property of 600 hectares, through primary and secondary forest. You will have the possibility to observe toucans, monkeys, peacocks, among others.

The main attraction of this Tour is to ride your horse into the forest with great views.

There is a volcano viewpoint where we are going to stop to take a brief of fresh air, and, to see the Arenal Volcano.

Finally, we will get to “Los Lirios Lake”. From this point, we will get back to the started point.

Traveler reviews

If you like riding, this will be an unforgettable experience. The land near the volcano is beautiful and the trail pretty much allows you to have the forest just to you and your group. I'm a veterinarian and felt that the horses were exceptional in terms of health, fitness, temperament and rider responsiveness. Our guide, Jorge, had trained some of the horses and it was clear there was a genuin e bond there. Jorge was very knowledgeable, impressively bilingual (much more than I am), a fantastic rider and went out of his way to make the ride a fun experience for all of us. If you find plodding trail rides to be dull, this will be a welcome change of pace (also have your phone or camera well secured). There were moments of adrenaline that kept me grinning but I always felt completely safe. Truly the highlight of my vacation!... (read more)

Great tour but the horses looked very tired.

We really enjoyed our ride up to the Arenal volcano view point even though the top of the volcano stayed in the clouds. The horses were well cared for and well trained and our guide was excellent. It was a lovely day to spend the morning.

Excellent experience with safe and knowledgeable instructor. The day we went was very foggy and, as we could not see the volcano well, the instructor took time to show us lots of different birds and animals instead (anteater, sloth, toucan, butterflies etc). He was also lovely and offered to help us take photos on the scenic parts of the ride. The horses were well looked after and well trained - I would thoroughly recommend this!... (read more)
