Iron-Horse Mountain Bike Tour At Hacienda Guachipelin

Go mountain biking in Costa Rica on the Iron-Horse Mountain Bike Tour at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

Experience the thrill of riding down the rugged terrain of an active volcano in Costa Rica on singletrack trails and dirt roads in the rainforest and splashing through rivers. Mountain bikers of all ages and abilities will enjoy this medium difficulty adventure.

Our one-of-a-kind Costa Rica mountain biking tour is a real adventure because it includes the multi-sports of horseback riding, waterfall swimming, mountain biking, river tubing and zip lining – all in one full-day tour you’ll never forget! A shortened half-day tour of horseback riding and mountain biking also is available.

On the full-day Iron-Horse Mountain Bike Tour, you start out riding Hacienda Guachipelin’s ranch horses up the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano through dense rainforest to the starting point for biking. Refresh with a quick break swimming in a hidden waterfall pool, where pure waters surge from volcanic rock in the forest.

Then you’ll descend the volcano by mountain bike, riding dirt roads and natural single track trails created by free-range ranch cattle for 24 km (15 miles) through the forest, crossing rivers and open fields. Panoramic views of the valley and grasslands are amazing.

You’ll ride to the Black River (Rio Negro), where you’ll keep your adrenaline pumping on the fun and refreshing Rio Negro Tubing Adventure. Your adventure doesn’t finish there either. Recharge your batteries with a delicious lunch at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin, followed by an exciting afternoon of flying on zip lines on the Canyon Canopy Tour. It’s an adventure not to be missed!
