Are you ready for Nicaragua Volcano Boarding?
If surfing is too wet, snowboarding too cold and skateboarding too 80’s, how about slipping and sliding down an active volcano?
ACTIVE VOLCANO? Are you mad?
Yeah - and luckily for you, we’ve found the only place in the world where you can do this - it's called Nicaragua Volcano Boarding.
Whoop Whoop! Situated in beautiful Nicaragua is a 2,388 foot (726m) volcano named Cerro Negro. Your mission is very simple - climb that volcano and then hurtle down the cinder-flanked behemoth on a glorified sled at speeds of up to 95kph.
If you think this latest extreme sport is your cup of tea... read on, thrill-seekers!
The ride of your life!
Your utterly unique, slightly crazy adventure begins with a bumpy drive through charming villages and farmland into the Cerro Negro National Park. An easy 45-minute hike will take you past four sulphur-belching craters (which are reminders that the volcano could erupt at any minute)… but once you reach the summit, the transfixing 360° panoramic views of the emerald forests below are well worth the $5 park admission price alone. After donning your jumpsuit, helmet and goggles, it’s time to dig deep and compose yourself for your biggest leap of faith yet; Nicaragua Volcano Boarding.
Yelling “Geronimo,” "Cowabunga" or "What the hell am I doing?" (the choice is yours) you'll fly down the dark, smooth ash slopes on a specially constructed plywood board and, as adrenaline pumps through your veins, you'll be whooping and hollering all the way down, leaving a cloud of volcano ash in your wake!
And to cap it all - the organisers have thought of everything to make this experience even more awesome. This ultimate thrill-seeking adventure day-trip comes with a bilingual guide, transport, snacks (including beers and a refreshing mojito) and a free night’s stay at their fun-packed hostel in LeÃ³n.
