Challenge yourself in two different outdoor sports as you go stand-up paddle boarding and mountain biking at scenic Lake Arenal. Enjoy 2.5 hours of paddling time and then a thrilling lake shore ride.


  • Paddle across Costa Rica's biggest lake, Lake Arenal
  • Epic sceneries along Costa Rica's best natural life environment.
  • Experience the best route for Mountain Biking in Costa Rica.


Explore the surroundings of the most authentic and epic scenarios that the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal have to offer. Combine two of the best activities in Arenal, Stand Up Paddle Lake Crossing and Mountain Biking all in one! Paddle across on Lake Arenal and ride your bike right next to the amazing Arenal Volcano and around Lake Arenal. Start your unforgettable voyage as you embark on our private boat loaded up with all the necessary gear. Meet our very amiable captain who will be encouraging you throughout the activity and while our outgoing guide will be teaching you how to stand on the board and will give you plenty of safety instructions. Once you're ready to give it a try your guide will plunk your board into the water. Start by paddling out on your knees and when you are ready, stand up and find your balance! Stand Up Paddling looks exactly as it sounds: you stand up on a large, wide, super buoyant board (similar to a surfboard) & use a long paddle to move yourself along. You'll feel like you're walking on water! As we embark on our journey out to the middle of Lake Arenal, you’ll be blown away by all of the natural beauty of Volcano Arenal. Make a short stop on a fascinating viewpoint that will leave you breathless. Paddle for 2.5 hours in this stunning adventure. Finish your paddling right in front of our NEW Pedal & Paddle Operations Store in the small town of El Foforos where you will have the chance to change into your dry clothes and fuel up with a refreshing and well-deserved delicious snack before heading to your next adventurous Mountain Bike challenge. You will bike along Lake Arenal and pass along the rainforest, rural farmlands, and wildlife. You'll have the chance to see different kinds of monkeys, toucans, coatimundis, and more throughout this beautiful landscape! You will bike on a gravel road that stretches 24km crossing the caño negro river towards Rio Chiquito. Afterward, return to your hotel in our vans equipped with free wifi. Be sure to share your exciting and unforgettable memories of our unique challenging combo with your friends and loved ones!
