In the bowels of the Tenorio Volcano, manifestations of hidden power transform the union of the Buena Vista and Roble rivers into a sky blue stream, giving birth to one of the most extraordinary phenomena of nature - The Light Blue River. Along the river, we find hot springs, bends of heavenly tranquility, and a beautiful waterfall. These are all with various plants and wildlife.

After a ride to the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the tour starts with a 7 km hike (approximately 4 hours) through the tropical rain forest. The goal is to reach “Los Tenideros” of the Celeste River which is where two streams of water, come together and form the heavenly color blue that gives the river its name. The walk along the trails, offers rich ecological wonders and a visit to the natural hot springs, all while observing the Tenorio Volcano. We will continue our hike through the jungle and will get to see the bright, spectacular Rio Celeste waterfall. Our final reward is a typical, exquisite Costa Rican lunch. Finally, we'll ride back to the hotels in La Fortuna.
