Get your adrenaline pumping while mountain biking along the base of an active volcano! Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, and then relax along the scenic drive to Arenal Volcano National Forest after pickup at your La Fortuna hotel.
When you arrive near the base of the 5,479-foot (1,670-meter) Arenal Volcano, mount a high-quality suspension mountain bike and set off on your two-wheeled tour of this magnificent landscape. Follow your guide along a narrow single-track trail that winds through the lush rain forest and open pastures where you can catch stunning views of the nearby volcano.
Expect to cover 12 miles (19 km) of challenging terrain that ranges from smoother, flat sections to rugged jungle trails traversed by tree roots and mud puddles. Along the wild ride, admire the incredible ecosystem of Arenal and look for rain forest residents like monkeys, coati, deer and toucans.
After about 2 hours of cycling, refuel with a tropical snack and cold drinks. Climb back on your bike and continue peddling for another several miles. At the end of the 4-hour mountain bike adventure, you’ll be returned to your La Fortuna hotel in the minivan.
