Expedition Type

Investigative and Scientific Expedition to Cacho Negro Volcano, located in the Braulio Carrillo National Park in Costa Rica, that according to the Main Objectives set by the scientists, to study the botanical and vulcanology of the area, required the use of a helicopter to make an airborne access of all the expedition team and equipment; because if these expedition will be tryed to get acommplish by land, being a hard access and remote area, will require many more days of jungle trekking, limiting the access to people with excelent fitness and mountaineering experience.

Outdoor Adventures designed, planned, trained the participants, and executed this Scientific Expedition taking a total of 10 people -including the scientist and staff-, to this remote area, and back to civilization in a safe, secure and logistically well executed Expedition. We where working close to the Scientific Director of the Expedition during all stages, to ensure that the trip will be as expected and required.
