Mountain Bike Tour between Arenal and Monteverde

Book This Trip

Mountain biking as a means of transport between La Fortuna and Monteverde!

If you love to ride mountain bikes you can now do so as a means of transport between Arenal and Monteverde – do an adventure on the way to your next destination, as a part of this innovative Adventure Connection.

The intense ride is about 3-hours long or about 25 miles. From Arenal, we’ll start at the Lake Arenal Dam where you drop off your luggage with Captain Marquez, our boat driver. From there we ride past the rural community of El Castillo until we get to the pristine Caño Negro river that runs alongside Rancho Margot.

From here we do a technical river crossing and continue riding through rolling hills along the edge of picture-perfect Lake Arenal until ride to the small town of Río Chiquito. The scenery is a combination of secondary rainforest, farmland and great views of the lake and volcano. Your eagle-eyed bike guide will help point out some of the local wildlife indigenous to the area, such as wild boar, sloths, toucans, Oropendolas and iguanas.

Upon arrival to Río Chiquito, you will be reunited with your luggage and Freddy, our driver, will drive you in his mini-van the remaining 1.5-hours up the steep, gravel roads to your hotel in Monteverde.

This is a truly adventurous ride – the terrain is rugged, the scenery is incredible but this is the perfect way to travel between La Fortuna and the small community of Monteverde.

This tour is designed to be done starting in Arenal and ending in Monteverde. It is possible to do starting from Monteverde but the tour is somewhat different in that case so if you're interested in that option please write us for a description.
