Witness the amazing natural scenery that runs along the Don Tobias route. This 100% horse ride starts in the modern stables of Don Tobias. Here a very professional guide team prepares us with pertinent information about the route. We start the horseback ride going towards the great Arenal volcano. Our adventure takes us on the old path that Don Tobias went along, who was a well known horse breeder in the area. Practically the whole ride is done on private property going through first and second generation forests as well as some beautiful fields used for cattle raising and of course amazing views of the great Arenal Volcano that accompanies us along the whole way. The horseback ride lasts about 3 hours starting at the foot of the mountain and going up through secondary forest terrains and cattle fields as well as crossing through a beautiful primary forest area that takes us to a beautiful iris lagoon. Here our horses refresh themselves in order to continue the journey. Later, we ascend a little more and we begin to see the impressing view that is at our back. At this point we find a well for the horses to drink and we prepare for the final ascent. The highest point and the point of return in our equine adventure is the lookout point. Here we will be the closest to Arenal Volcano that is allowed. After enjoying this beautiful view, we return to our horses in order to start the descent down the mountain.
