Tour information

Near the town of La Fortuna and on the outskirts of the Arenal Volcano, we find one of the best attractions of the area; the Arenal Lake. The man-made lake is the home of the Arenal hydroelectric dam, one of Costa Rica's principal energy sources.

For kayaking and water sports lovers, Lake Arenal offers an excellent place to practice this sport. This 2-hour challenge kayaking against the wind and waves of the region will be an unforgettable experience. You will discover the pure thrill of this adventure in the midst of the breathtaking landscape of the flora while getting amazing up-close views of the Arenal Volcano.

During the tour, we will visit an island located in the center of the lagoon, where you can enjoy the refreshing waters, in addition to cold beverages and fresh fruit to recharge your energy for the remainder of the kayaking tour.

Great Views
James Morency
My wife and I did it yesterday and it was amazing. The volcano was very clear, so the views were astounding. Very recommended.
Better then we expected
Laercio Horta
We called for the company to change the day and they advice us, to change from kayak at the lake to kayak at the river. We accepted the suggestion and made that. It was great. Completely safe. The guide was very helpful and friendly. Also gave a lot of information about Costa Rica, this ecosystem in special and about all animals we found on the way.
Just the stop over a farm, we would prefe r to have more time to kayak.
The only suggestion - we would prefer to have more time on the river. It was too short in our opinion.
