First, the group will set out on a 25-minute drive to the lake. Once there, you’ll get a safety demonstration from your guide.
On the lake, you’ll see boats full of tourists headed to see the volcano, as well as local fishermen fishing for bass. Keep a lookout for monkeys, iguanas, and tropical birds in the surrounding trees.
Lake Arenal, lying adjacent to the Arenal Volcano in the Northern Lowlands of Costa Rica, is the country’s most spectacular lake. With the magnificent Arenal Volcano to the east and rolling hills and forested slopes all around, the scenery couldn’t be better. Add to that a number of activities that includes world-class windsurfing and sailboarding, fishing, kayaking, bird watching and more, and you have the makings for a spectacular destination.

Very well done trip. Riding on roads in any country can be scary due to the cars but having the van in back of us added a measure of security. Mauricio was good at adapting to the different needs- I am not good on hills and that wasn't a problem. Would be nice if Costa Rica developed some off road trails. The kayaking was great. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relaxing paddle. We were able to talk with the other people and on the tour and just find out about life in each others countries. Mauricio had a great ending to the trip because instead of staying on the lake we paddled up the river where we could see even more birds and wildlife. Again there was the wonderful Costa Rican food at the end of the trip. Another example of why I let Anywhere plan my trip instead of doing it myself. You folks know the good guides with great Costa Rican values of caring for our planet.
Excelente aventura de principio a fin. Rudy es un excelente guía, asegurándose de cada detalle. El inicio del kayaking por el río fue excelente y las vistas en el lago mucho mejores. La ruta de bici también estuvo excelente, no importando la lluvia. Un tour ampliamente recomendado.
Este es un tour genial! Atravesar el lago arenal en Kayak es una experiencia única. Yo pensaba que el tour era solamente navegar en kayak sin rumbo. Atravesar el lago arenal en Kayak es una experiencia única, no lo esperaba, sin embargo también es un tour de mucha condición física, sobretodo para la segunda parte del tour: La bicicleta de montaña.
