Arenal & Guanacaste Rivers & Volcanoes

Arenal & Guanacaste Rivers & Volcanoes

Paddle on peaceful Lake Arenal with spectacular, active Arenal Volcano as the backdrop and then run two of Costa Rica’s most challenging and spectacular rivers in neighboring Guanacaste region. This multi-day trip takes you through and around Costa Rica’s Northern Volcano Mountain Range, extending from Arenal to the Orosí Volcano.


We’ll start at Lake Arenal for gentle lake kayaking with views of the volcano as it spews its lava. The following day and half will have your adrenaline pumping and your eyes popping on the Upper Tenorio and then the Cucaracho River in Guanacaste. Incredible wildlife and scenery surround you as you pass through dry forests, rainforests and finally, cloud forests. These iconic Costa Rican landscapes are guaranteed to inspire and astound you as you experience them up close and first hand.
