We begin the tour at 7am in the Quetzaltrekkers office where we assemble our bags and eat a filling breakfast prepared by the guides. We then leave in our private truck for a one-hour ride to the starting point of the hike, the ranger station located between Cerro Negro and the Las Pilas-El Hoyo complex. The participants who are not doing Volcano Boarding will have to wait here for about 1 hour until the Volcano Boarders are back. After refuelling with a snack at the ranger station, we grab our big packs and begin a steep ascent of the Las Pilas – El Hoyo volcanic complex. We eat lunch upon arriving at the base of Las Pilas, and then wind through forests and old craters to approach El Hoyo. Out of nowhere comes “the Hole,” a mysterious giant sinkhole where we make camp. After erecting tents, we take a closer look at the Hole, summit the volcano, and explore an ominous, steaming sulfur vent. We enjoy dinner back at the campsite, practically a balcony seat for the view over Lake Managua, Momotombo, and lake Asososca. The next day, we open our tents and discover a truly unforgettable sunrise view of the lakes and volcanoes. We then eat breakfast, pack up camp, and make our way downwards through jungle and farmland to reach the Volcán Asososca and neighboring crater lake. After a long morning of hiking, we arrive at the crater lake where we eat lunch and reward ourselves with a refreshing swim. At around 1pm our private 4x4 arrives at the site to pick the group up and bringing us all back to Leon at around 2pm.
