We offer to take you around in the area of León for sightseeing and trekking.  From relaxed sightseeing trips and easy trekking destinations to the more requiring volcano climbing.  Below is a list of what we offer you.  We can arrange many other tours according to your wishes - just ask.

Please be aware that our classification of the trekking tours as "easy", "medium" and requiring of course depends on each person's capacity.  We have e.g. classified the Cerro Negro tour as "easy", as even children can climb the volcano in less than an hour. But if you are not accustomed to climbing mountains at all, you may find that it is not so easy, as the terrain is a bit rough and particularly around midday the sun can be quite hot and it might also be windy.  Most people climb it easily, also retied people, but we have experienced some young people complaining that it is  misleading to call it "easy".  So please make your own assessment.

All prices are in USD.  There shall be a minimum of 2 persons.
