Reise zum Vulkan irazu Tour Irazu Volcano

Trip to Irazú Volcano, Costa Rica

Irazú Volcano, Basilica of Cartago & Orosi Valley in one day. On a winding path, past diversely cultivated fields, the route goes up to 3,432 m above sea level to the crater of the “Irazú” volcano, the highest volcano in Costa Rica. When the sky is clear, you have a breathtaking view of the main craters and the two oceans bordering Costa Rica: the Atlantic and the Pacific.

But don't forget to dress warmly on this trip, because despite the best weather, the wind at these altitudes can quickly make you shiver. Next, there's a stop in Costa Rica's former capital, Cartago , which is located at the foot of the volcano. Particular attention is paid to the “Basílica de la Virgen de los Àngeles”. Every year on August 2nd, thousands of believers from far away make a pilgrimage to this place to thank the Virgin Mary for her miracles and to pray.
