  There's more to Somoto Canyon Tours than Canyoning

When you've had your fill of canyoning there's a wealth of other activities in the area, from abseiling and rock climbing to a day on the farm, a visit to the city of Somoto, taking a sunset walk to the lookouts above the canyon surrounded by the mountains of Northern Nicaragua, or just hanging out chilling and maybe listening to some local musicians. Our new offering is in the area geotours in the geologically diverse zone surrounding the canyon with customised trips for our visitors.
