Cerro Negro Trek

Moderate Activity/Walking Meal

Duration: 8 hours

Tour Code: CIO-007

Savor the adventure of climbing to the rim of Cerro Negro volcano, following by a more leisurely exploration of the colonial city of Leon.

Depart from the pier and settle in for a scenic drive into Nicaragua’s rural countryside. In time, you will arrive at the base of Cerro Negro, the youngest volcano in Central America. It first erupted in 1850, and while there have been occasional eruptions since then the volcano has only damaged farmland because it is located in a sparsely populated area.

Your hike along the black basalt slopes of Cerro Negro will take approximately two hours, and the views are spectacular throughout as the volcano is completely void of vegetation. The trail is an unpaved, natural path that leads to the rim, where you will have a bird’s-eye view into the smoking crater below and a 360-degree view of the surrounding land. It’s well worth the effort and compared to other volcanoes, Cerro Negro is easily accessible.

After descending, you will drive to the colonial city of Leon for lunch and free time in its vibrant main square. Magnificent Leon Cathedral, whose construction began in 1747, dominates the popular gathering place. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cathedral beautifully illustrates several architectural styles and features thick low towers shaped to withstand earthquakes. If you walk through the interior, you will notice the abundance of natural sunlight and rich ornamentation. Later, you will return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes over 4-hours of travel on a coach, 2-hours of moderate to strenuous hiking, plus anY additional walking at the guests’ discretion during free time in Leon. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests should be in good physical condition. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and a bottle of water from the ship are recommended. Flat, sturdy hiking shoes are required. *Daytime temperatures in this destination can be quite high.*
