Upon arrival to the volcano base, we will switch vehicles into a 4WD to ascend the slopes of the Mombacho Volcano where the “Cutirre” coffee farm is located. Upon arrival, qualified staff will assist us to put on all the necessary equipment. After we gear up we will be driven to the starting point where safety instructions will be provided. We will then be ready to take one of the most exciting excursions in Nicaragua, the canopy tour! Canopy is an English word that refers to the top of the tree which is where the adventure actually takes place. You slide on cables that connect platforms located at the very top of enormous trees. We will be assisted the whole trip so we can enjoy this experience in comfort and safety. As we slide from platform to platform, we can admire the wonderful sights of the surrounding exuberant nature. After lunch, we will visit the Mombacho volcano natural reserve, hiking the trails of the volcano (approximately 1:45 minutes) to learn about the flora, the fauna, the ancient people who lived there and the Volcanology of the area. If the day is clear enough, we will visit an impressive viewpoint to observe the plain pacific region of Nicaragua, the neighboring city of Granada and the great lake of Nicaragua and its islands. When we return from our walk, we will visit the biological station where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or purchase snacks and end with a moderate hike back to the vehicle.
