Hiking and Photography

Hiking, Guided Hikes, Extra Excursions

1.- Bellavista has a web of about 20 trails.

2.- None of the trails are totally flat, however there are a few very easy trails to hike.

3.- Moderate hikes demand little effort for climbing short slopes and going down natural steps.

4.- Difficult trails demand extensive physical efforts (for knees / legs / feet) although for short periods of time.

5.- For all hikes throughout the year, Bellavista provides rubber boots to all hikers, at no extra cost.
All sizes available up to 47US. Not always necessary though!

6.- Our guides will always provide a thorough briefing before each hike.
If you feel you don’t belong to this group of hikers, you are welcome to ask your guide for a softer or harder hike.

7.- You are welcome to hike our trails on your own too. Basic maps are provided at the lodge.

8.- Each guide will usually take a maximum of 8 hikers on each group.

9.- We have three hikes each day (06h15 – 09h30 – 15h00). Normally these hikes are shared with more people.

10.- Groups will have hikers of all nationalities, sex, conditions, languages.

11.- All guided hikes are done in English or Spanish.

12. - We offer half day / full day and longer excursions (birding, natural history, adventure) to various attractions and different elevations within the northwestern region.
