3 Days Mount Nyiragongo Hiking Safari & Climbing Tour Costs

Nyiragongo volcano is one of the iconic attractions within the Virunga Regions, D.R. Congo. Located in Virunga National Park (VNP) Congo, Nyiragongo is a powerful volcano, renowned for its multiple eruption, and with the most recent one experienced in 2021. At its summits, there is a bubbling Lava Lake to take your breath away, and this makes your 3 days Nyiragongo a special tour of its own.

Virunga National Park is officially recognized UNESCO Site given its remarkable biodiversity. Established in 1925, Virunga Park is home to not only the rare mountain gorillas, but also chimpanzees, bongo antelopes, buffaloes, elephants, 706 bird species, okapis and more. On this short trip, your target will be hiking to the summits of Nyiragongo, the world’s renowned most active volcano.
