This bike tour takes us along an old road connecting Arenal Dam with the main entrance to Arenal Volcano National Park. We will continue along a quiet lane surrounded by dense forest and a few cattle farms toward the Arenal Observatory Lodge and the village of El Castillo. Along the way, we may see howler monkeys, coatis, and many birds such as toucans, egrets, and kingfishers. Throughout the tour, we will enjoy beautiful views of Volcano Arenal and on the shore of Arenal Lake. We will break for a snack.
