Team Building Experience Stand Up Paddle on Lake Arenal - customizable especially for you!
This unique team building activity will get your group working together as they do fun activities and challenges on Lake Arenal at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano. Stand Up Paddling looks exactly as it sounds: stand up on a large, wide, super buoyant board (similar to a surfboard) and use a long paddle to move yourself along -- but we add in some challenging dynamics to get everyone to work together!
As we embark on our journey out to the middle of the lake, you’ll be blown away by all of the natural beauty of Lake Arenal. The mountains that surround the lake are different shades of green, as some are in the foreground while the others fade into the distance. At first, the Arenal Volcano seems like it is hidden behind mountains, but if you get to a certain part in the lake you’ve reached the sweet spot – a spot where you can see the detailed textures of its rock formation and where passing in front of it can make you feel tiny. When you reach the middle of the lake, your guide will give you plenty of safety instructions and plunk your board into the water.
Paddle out on your knees and when you are ready, stand up and find your balance! The calm waters in Arenal make this a perfect sport for people of all ages and all skill levels.
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 half way through the tour we’ll paddle to an island where the next part of the adventure begins. We'll split up your group into teams and you'll participate in activities like:
+ Stand Up Paddle Races
+ Follow the clues to find treasures
+ Survivor! Who can create their boat the fastest?
+ Fun techniques and tricks on your paddle board
These activities are perfect for companies and groups who would like to improve communication, leadership, innovation, and team work. After all their hard work, relax, crack open the cooler and fuel up with a refreshing and well-deserved BBQ. Que Rico!
