November 2008 Observatory Lodge
Eruption Date: Tue Nov 04 2008 16:00:00 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time)
The weather was clear the entire night of November 5, 2008. We set up along the west side of the Observatory deck where there was the least amount of light. Unfortunately, people continued to try and capture photos using their flash cameras (which is impossible), and this ended up ruining several of our long exposure images. All in all, though, we ended up coming away with several amazing photographs.
There were no large eruptions on this night, but rather a steady stream of tumbling, fiery boulders.
Check out our Arenal Volcano Map for an update on the volcano’s current activity. It did, however, enter into a resting phase in 2010. At present, no eruptions are occurring.
There are a number of excursions in Arenal that allow for close viewing of the Arenal volcano. These include hikes through the Arenal Volcano National Park and the 4-in-one Arenal excursion, which includes a trip to the waterfall, a volcano hike, and a visit to one of the area’s hot springs.
