2 Days Volcanoes National Park Hike

Found in Rwanda, Bisoke mount is the easiest volcanic mountain in the virunga ranges to hike and trek.

On second day you will be driven to headquarters by a tour guide for your next hike.

The hike aims to give tourists a learning experience about the works of the famous American primatologist and conservationist, Dian Fossey, who dedicated her life to research about the mountain gorillas. She set up a research camp in the valley between Mt Karisimbi and Mt Bisoke hence the name ‘Karisoke. 

The difficulty of the hike can be placed at moderate level and doable by anyone with basic fitness. It is however challenging in wet conditions due to mud. The average altitude of the trail is 2900m to 3000m above sea level. Our safari guide will be waiting for you at the foot of the mount.
