If you’d love to travel in South America this year but cannot bear the thought of being away from your bike for two weeks, the brand-new Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu Mountain Bike Tour could be the perfect choice for your 2018 holiday.
An off-road adventure for experienced mountain bikers who are not afraid to get dirty, the Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu Cycle Tour highlights some of the most beautiful dirt trails in all Peru, with a total distance of 587km and spectacular mountain passes that will take you 4,500m above sea level.
This magnificent 12-Day Peru Mountain Bike Tour starts in Juliaca, the largest city on the altiplano, and ends in Cusco, the gateway to the Incan Citadel of Machu Picchu. Along the way, you’ll visit local towns, have the unique opportunity to overnight with local families at a community-based project, camp under the stars at 4,000m, and of course, visit the Lost City of the Incas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
While you can cycle in Peru at any time of the year, it can be wet from November to March, and so the Titicaca to Machu Picchu Mountain Bike Tour is recommended during the months of April to October. You’ll be hosted by a local English-speaking guide, a support vehicle is never far behind, and all meals and accommodations are included from day one in Juliaca to your final night in the vibrant city of Cuzco.
This all-inclusive trip also includes Mountain Bike hire, although you are more than welcome to bring your own trusty steed if you prefer, luggage transportation, camping equipment, bus, train and entrance tickets for Machu Picchu, and more than a few life-changing experiences that are sure to make this a cycling holiday of a lifetime!
