Volcano Boarding in Nicaragua? You Must Be Joking…

Volcano boarding is an activity I never thought I’d be brave enough to do, but when in Nicaragua…!

We travelled by a small plane from Roatan island to the capital of Honduras, Tegulcigalpa – then headed south across the Nicaraguan border to León. What is there to do in León? One of the most bizarre extreme sports I’ve ever heard of – volcano boarding.

The tour organised by Bigfoot Hostels starts with a drive down bumpy roads on the back of a large open truck. Once there, it’s time to hike for one hour up the side of the active Cerro Negro volcano carrying a wooden board. When I reached the 2388 ft high summit, I peered over the edge and questioned life for a second, and why I would ever pay to fling myself down the side of it, especially when clinging on for dear life to a piece of wood and a tiny rope handle. Then I donned a Guantanamo orange suit, goggles, and perched on the edge of the ash and rocks, ready to push off.
