A better name for this should be Volcano Climbing Adventure. . It is a very strenuous hike over an extremely muddy trail, tree roots and rocks. with a quick pace. We had read the reviews before booking the hike and were aware of the comments that this was the toughest hike they had ever done. I would have to agree with those reviews. Our guide Hilton was excellent he has hiked this trail for 21 years and knew exactly how much time to allot for each section of the trail in order for it to be completed and participants back in time for the ship's on board time. If we had been able to set our own pace we might have been able to complete the hike but would not have made it back to the ship on time.. If you are up for a cardio workout then then this hike is for you but be warned there were hikers on the trail in their late 20 to early 30 that could not finish even half of the trail.

The hike to the crater of Mt. Liamuiga is a challenging hike and climb, but gave an view of the crater and view to the ocean. Our guide Hilton did a great job, and the walking sticks provided, the snacks and water were adequate for the effort. My main concern was that Hilton was taking a group of about 20 of us by himself. He wisely stayed with the slower members,but the younger and faster ones sped ahead, and I was hiking alone in the middle. I hike solo in challenging terrain, so I wasn't personally worried.Other groups had at least two guides, , which I felt, based on my own experiences as an outdoor professional and volunteer was what was needed.My concern was not with Hilton, but that he alone. Luckily everyone made it back safely.Hilton provided good info on the sites we passed on the way out to the hike.I appreciated getting returned to our ship's dock and not having to take shuttles back from town.It made for an easy end to a challenging, rewarding day.

The hike was a little tougher than expected but well worth it, bring hiking boots
Man! This is an adventure like no other! If you aren't into hard challenging hiking, don't do this. If you are, wow! Definitely the hardest hike I have ever done. You WILL get dirty. Wear clothing and shoes that can get dirty. I can't stress enough how hard this is. But, so worth it! Our guide was fantastic.

We took our family of 5 of this hike and it was a once in a life time experience. As stated in the other reviews- this is extremely a physical hike- you are not always on a nice smooth path- in some spots there are some climbing involved. The top- the view is unexplainable. I would say if you are in good shape- DO this!! We also were lucky to see a lot of wild monkeys while we hiked.
