This tour combines the Irazu Volcano National Park and the enchantment of the Orosi Valley and Lankester Gardens. This amazing tour begins hiking south along the Panamerican Highway reaching the base of the Beast "Iztaru" (name of an indigenous village that was situated on the flanks of the volcano, and a likely candidate as a possible origin for the current name of the Irazu Volcano Tours).

At the top of the volcano you can observe the main craters and on a clear day both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen. As we descend to the city of Cartago we will stop at the Virgin of the Angels Basilica which according to religious custom is a peregrination site for many believers.

Lankester Gardens is a Center for investigation of University of Costa Rica that protects more than 800 species of orchids, bromeliads and countless species of other plants. Continuing to the Valley of Orosi, area that overflows with unparallel beauty really gifted for the surrounds. We will be able to visit one of the few remaining colonial churches and we will stop to enjoy a scrumptious typical lunch at one of the local restaurants.
