Tours to Refugio Volcanes in Amboro National in located in ANMI.

Amboro National Park  is a large wilderness of one and a half million acres that straddles the eastern foothills of the Andean mountains in the Department of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. It lies exactly at the point where the Andean cordillera turns abruptly north-west, and continues towards southern Peru. After having run 3,000 miles due north from Tierra del Fuego. This elbow and its low-lying hiterland is the meeting point of four very different geographical zones, the southern rim of the Amazona basin (with its humid tropical forest) the western edge of the brasilian shield (with its sub-tropical deciduous forest) limit of the temperate woodland ofh the Chaco and the very diverse subtropical and temparate forest of the Andean mountains themselves. It is not surprising then to find that the park contains eleven Holdridge Life Zones (the same as the whole of Costa Rica) from the warn humid forest of the low lands to the cactus deserts adn cloud forestof the uplands

Information  About The Trails - Grade Of Difficulty
Tours To Refugio Volcanes

Tours To Refugio Volcanes  Pathways for walks 
LORO Trail – Moderate to Difficult (3 Hours)
The start of this trail is located 200 meters before reaching the main lodge. Initially, the path through the forest is flat, following the river. During this part of the journey, you have the best chance to see monkeys and parrots. The route then returns to the rocky and steep slope of the southern valley, where you'll walk while observing rocks covered with bromeliads and many sunbathing lizards. It's also common to see some condors circling around the reddish cliffs of the valley. The view is beautiful, with dramatic vistas from various viewpoints. The trail continues along the slope back to the main entrance road.

CONDOR Trail – Moderate (2 – 3 Hours) Tours To Refugio Volcanes
This trail starts right next to the restaurant and crosses several rivers before reaching a wide area with huge Bibosi trees. It continues with a fairly demanding 20-minute uphill climb through the humid jungle. The reward is a wonderful panoramic view of the lodge and its surroundings. During the descent, pay attention to the mountains on the other side of the lodge, as it's very common to see condors soaring there.

AMBORÓ Trail – Moderate to Difficult (3 – 5 Hours)
This trail begins next to the restaurant. The first part follows the route of the Orchid and Coffee trails before delving deeper into the jungle. Be prepared to get your feet wet, depending on the water level of the Elvira River, which you'll cross multiple times. You might frequently come across traces of larger mammals like pumas and jaguars on the trail. You'll encounter several incredible waterfalls with natural pools along the way, where you can cool off and even enjoy a picnic. The return to the lodge is along the same route.

ORQUIDEAS Trail – Very Easy (0.5 – 1 Hour)
This short loop starts next to the restaurant and is suitable for all levels. The route crosses the Elvira River several times, making it fun for children who will find various opportunities to play and splash in the water. You can see orchids during the walk, especially between the months of June and November.

TRES CASCADAS Trail – Easy (0.5 – 1 Hour)
This trail begins next to the restaurant and takes you to three beautiful nearby waterfalls. When the water level allows, you can swim in the natural pools.

SIRARI Trail – Moderate (3 Hours)
This fairly flat trail starts at the restaurant. It follows the Orchid Trail before taking a detour that leads towards Amboró National Park. A picturesque waterfall marks the end of this route, an ideal place to take a break before returning.

BOSQUE SECO Trail – Moderate to Difficult (3 – 4 Hours)
The trail starts with a difficult and steep 2-kilometer climb from the main access road to Cafetal. Here, you turn right and venture into the jungle on a narrow path. You'll be shaded by lush trees for most of the way, with occasional views of the lodge below. Then, in the last section, you'll descend, following the Elvira River and connecting to the Tres Cascadas Trail, which passes by the waterfalls near the restaurant.

CUMBRE Trail – Very Difficult (4 – 5 Hours)
This trail begins on the main access road and initially follows the Loro Trail. Then, you take a left turn where a steep and demanding 2-hour ascent begins. At the summit, an incredible and dazzling 360° view awaits. This trail is only recommended for individuals in excellent physical condition due to its rigor and difficulty.
