Mountain Bike Tour

This ride takes us on an old road connecting Arenal Dam with the main entrance to Arenal Volcano National Park. From there we go towards the village of El Castillo, biking on a quiet lane surrounded by dense forest and cattle farms. Along the ride we see howling monkeys, coatis, and birds like toucans, egrets and king fishers. We’ll stop for a picnic on the shore of Lake Arenal where it’s possible to swim. The volcano is visible during all of the ride and we can usually hear its activity while we bike.
