You don’t have to track gorillas to go trekking in Volcanoes National Park – there are other interesting activities such as hiking volcanoes or cycling to the twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo in Musanze  often labeled the “neglected gems” of Rwanda.

The trek to the Bisoke Crater Lake on the summit of Bisoke Volcano is the most popular mountain hiking adventure in Volcanoes National Park and Rwanda.

Stay one night at a beautiful guesthouse with  has a superb location on hilltop overlooking the lake with sweeping views accross to the volcanoes in the northwest and stupendous sunsets. Several footpath lead down the steep slopes to the lake shore.

Tour Details

Bisoke Volcano is a moderate hike which is done within a day. The trek is very rewarding with beautiful scenery and great views of the lush Virungas and Rwanda’s hilly landscape, a cloud experience at the top of the volcano and arguably the most beautiful crater lake of the Virunga ranges – Bisoke Crater Lake. You also get to observe up-close an array of unique mountain wildlife, including a good chance at encountering the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys. 

The hike may present a tough challenge for the non-experienced and first-time hikers but with good fitness preparation and endurance can they conquer the muddy trails, and steep climbs to make it to the Crater Lake within four hours. The experienced hikers will find it an easy feat and probably make it to the summit in 3 hours.

Ruhondo and Burera are beautiful twin lakes located at the base of volcano Muhabura and close to the border with Uganda. They are surrounded by steep hills and large waterfalls with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains.
