I loved every minute of this tour with our awesome guide from Cali. After a grueling windy 50 minute hike to the top my boyfriend proposed and our guide got it on camera! It was exciting to then glide down the volcano choosing my own speed and halfway down posing for photos! Must do and way better than the competitor Bigfoot who wants you to go fast and people were getting bloody from the falls! Choose this safe tour and love every minute!

The staff here are very friendly and helpful, they also seem to be well organised. Tours are efficiently run and very enjoyable if you are into speeding down volcanoes. It is also one of the smaller sized tour groups up the volcano compared to those from Bigfoot hostel therefore you get the chance to go down the volcano twice if you dare! The range of tours they offer did look great value for money and covered a lot of different areas for tourists to explore.

Almost missed the opportunity to go volcano boarding. If it was not for Henry we would definitely have missed our tour. It was late & the office was closed. But… just our luck; Henry asked if we needed help. Could not be better. We signed in for the trip next day. All together there was 6 of us. This was really GR8 experience. Henry was very patient we us :) Thank you all for the amazing experience :)

If you want to have both fun & help the locals do chose Quetzaltrekkers !!!

This is a good organization. Start to finish of both our hikes they had it covered. Convenient location in Leon. All the guides we had were excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable.
You have to be in shape to do these tours. Most are young people. We are older but very fit. We did not think it too hard. But we hike a lot anyway.
Our full moon Telica was great. We had transport right from the front door of Quetzaltrekkers. There were 18 people on this hike. Two guides.
On the Cosiguinhike we had to take public transport, all paid and arranged by the guides. But you have to be in shape for these rides. Very cramped rides, long and hot. But that is the way in Nicaragua anyway. Four people this hike with two guides.
Plenty of snacks and food on the hike. In fact it was a joke to try and get people to finish them up. We never did.
I would recommend this outfit and would go on any of their tours. A good value. They were fun and well organized.
5 stars from me.

This is a non-profit outdoor activities business. The staff there was very friendly and we had a great time volcano boarding. Unlike some other Volcano boarding companies that just want you to go as fast as possible, Quetzaltrekkers emphasized safety and going home uninjured. Even once we were done, our guide, Sam, helped arrange a private shuttle that took us all the way to our hostel in Granada even though it was getting late.

Quetzaltrekkers is an excellent company that offers a great experience for a good cause. If you go volcano boarding in Leon then use these guys!
