Overview

Venture to Costa Rica's largest lake as you explore the beautiful Lake Arenal! Try our New and cool craze of stand up paddling or "SUP" crossing Lake Arenal. You'll feel like you're walking on water as you skirt the beautiful bays of Lake Arenal!
As we embark on our journey, you’ll be blown away by all of the natural beauty of Volcano Arenal.
It’s a great activity for people who just want to be on a freshwater lake, soaking up the sun in gorgeous scenery with plenty of opportunity for conversation. About halfway through the tour, make a short stop on an amazing viewpoint and visit an incredible island while crossing Lake Arenal.
After 2.5 hours of paddling, finish your day at our NEW Pedal & Paddle Adventure Store located in the small town of El Foforo on the other side of the lake. Change into your dry clothes and get ready to fuel up with a refreshing and well-deserved snack, before heading back to your hotel. Qué Rico!

Amazing!!

This was SO COOL! I’ve never SUPed before, so to experience it on Lake Arenal was incredible. Our guide, Brian, was lovely. He made the experience even better. The view of the volcano was stunning. I highly recommend this!
Amazing views, even better guides!

I did a few excursions through Desafio during my visit to La Fortuna, but my favorite by far was Stand-Up-Paddleboarding with Francisco! He did a few fun and silly activities in the beginning to get everyone comfortable on the boards, and then took us on a scenic trip across the lake. It was awesome! He was extremely knowledgable about the history and culture about the lake, and it was so cool hearing his stories while paddle-boarding! I definitely recommend to anyone looking to see the volcano from the lake, or just to get a unique experience in La Fortuna!
One of our favorite Costa Rican excursions

We did the stand up paddling and it was one of our favorite excursions from our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. We went on a Sunday afternoon and were the only two on the tour and there were not many people out on the lake. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Our guide was funny and informative and had great stories to tell. He struck a perfect balance of guiding us, but then also giving us enough space to roam around. We left wishing the tour was even longer!
Great activities, well organised company

We used Desafio for SUP on lake Arenal and transfer to Monteverde with Don Juan coffee tour.
Both trips were exceptional. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. The activities were great fun and everything was very well organised. Always on time and smooth running.
Excellent service, Great guides

We used Desafio for all our drivers for a week in Costa Rica, had 5 drivers total plus a boat captain for the taxi-boat-taxi and they were prompt and on time and drove very safely and were in all ways excellent. Always having water bottles ready and free WIFI in vehicle (though in many areas signal was not great but more location than Desafio). Overall I can't speak more highly of the drivers professionalism.
We also did the Stand Up Paddle Board and the Rainforest Mystery tour scheduled through Desafio. Both tours were done very professionally and have no negatives.
I'd recommend Desafio for tours and drivers.
