Izalco Volcano Tours and Activities

40 Reviews

Located within El Salvador’s Cerro Verde National Park (Parque Nacional Cerro Verde), the Izalco Volcano is the highest in the country and the park’s most visually beautiful peak. It’s also one of the most challenging treks in the park; it takes visitors an average of three hours (one way) to reach the summit at 6,404 feet (1,952 meters).

A baby when compared to other Central American volcanoes, Izalco only formed in 1770 and didn’t stop erupting until 1966. It’s violent eruptions made the volcano a natural beacon for sea farers off the Salvadoran coast, earning it the nickname Lighthouse of the Pacific. These same eruptions were also responsible for sculpting the volcano’s near perfect conical shape, lunar-like and unvegetated, with a 820-foot (250-meter) wide crater at its summit.

Private hike to active Izalco and Cerro Verde volcanoes. 2 volcanoes in one day!

star-5

Izalco is one of the youngest volcanoes in the world and still active. Reaching its crater is a rewarding experience! Be prepared for steep slopes, lush cloud forests, challenging ground and (when Mother Nature's in the mood) stunning views. Called "The Lighthouse of the Pacific" by ancient sailors, this young fella was in a constant eruption since late 1700s, spewing lava flows and debris until it reached an elevation of near 2000 m (6400+ ft). This stratovolcano is classified as active. Near the crater you can still see fumaroles and, from the top, the solidified lava fields spewed during recent eruptions. NOTE: this is a challenging hike, proper gear required for safety. Hiking boots/shoes, hydration, sun/rain protection and a good physical shape is a must. Trekking poles highly recommended. In order to guarantee you an early departure, this tour must be booked -at least- with 7 days in advance. Afternoon leisure time at Coatepeque lake private estate available upon request.
