Telica Lava Sunset/Overnight Hike

Telica volcano hike at sunset
Peer over the edge at the Telica Volcano, and stare directly into an active volcano.
This sunset hike to the top of Telica Volcano is sure not to disappoint. At the top is a huge smoking crater mouth, 700 meters wide and 120 meters deep. In the depths you can see the glowing red magma and sulfur gas clouds coming up from the core of the earth.
We drive almost to the top (around 2 hours driving, mostly off-road so prepare for a bumpy ride!) and then walk the final 45 minutes, just in time for a beautiful sunset. As it grows dark, you can see the lava brightly glow (depending on weather conditions). We'll hike down under the stars, with flashlights to guide the way.
Pick up at your hotel in León (or any location in the country at an additional cost).
