Starting every day from La Fortuna and all hotels near Arenal Volcano our One-Day Bike Tours focus in the area around Arenal Volcano National Park and Arenal Lake. Since bikes are not allowed inside the National Park, we use different roads just outside of it. The closest you can get to Arenal Volcano on a bicycle is on our “El Castillo" or "Mountain Bike at Lake Arenal" tours.

Great trails and always a picture spot available  View the Arenal Lake and Volcano from several points along the ride  The La Fortuna Church offers a spectacular picture spot

At the end of any tour we can drop you off at the Hot Springs of your choice. Most Hot Springs in the area require a reservation that can easily be arranged through our office without any charge.

The majestic Lake Arenal near the famous Arenal Volcano is the largest in Costa Rica. We offer many activities all year round on and around it: windsurfing, fishing, boat tours, boat shortcut to the Monteverde CloudForest, kayaking, horseback riding and mountain biking along the shore, etc.

Lake Arenal was enlarged to 3 times it's original size to form a basin for the hydroelectric project that now produces 70% of Costa Rica's electricity with an area of 85.5km (33 sq. miles). Surrounded by rolling hills that are partly pastured and partly forested and dominated on the east side by the imposing perfect cone of Volcan Arenal.

The lake's other claim to fame is its rainbow bass sport fishing. These fighting fish are called by locals guapote and are large members of the cichlid family. Their sharp teeth and fighting nature make them a real challenge. Their meat is white and tasty.

Lake Arenal with it's unique combination of warm fresh water, steady and strong winds and spectacular scenery now enjoys a world class reputation amongst windsurfers and sailboarders.

Pathway distance: 8 to 16 miles.

Can you spot the howler monkeys?
