    What to Expect
    If you are a nature and adventure enthusiast you will be thrilled to try Costa Rica’s newest and most sought after water activity in Costa Rica.

    After a 30 minutes’ drive, from la Fortuna of San Carlos, we will arrive at our tour start point, the Lake Arenal, located close to the Arenal Volcano.

    Once your professional tour guide provide you the safety speech, you and your group will be ready to start this unique experience.  

    This Pedal Board tour will take you gliding across the calm and peaceful waters of Lake Arenal that sits at the foot of the breathtaking Arenal Volcano, just outside of La Fortuna. 

    Although it sounds familiar to Stand Up Paddle Boarding, it is very different. In fact, the board is powered by the strongest part of your body, your legs, and allows you to grasp the firm handlebars for balance, making this activity easy and fun for people of all ages.

    You will be so close to the volcano that you can see the details of the dried up lava flow from its last eruption decades ago. It has since been active but is currently dormant, with no signs of lava flow in years.

    This peaceful freshwater lake is surrounded by large rolling hills, farmer’s fields, and the impressive Arenal Volcano, you will have a big chance to observe out interesting wildlife that you may find on the shore or birds flying overhead. Halfway through the tour, we’ll pull up on shore and take a break, having a chance to go for a swim, take photos, and enjoy some refreshments.
