ITINERARY for 10 DAY Multi-Day Mountain Bike Trip in Peru

Day 1: Shred some Killer Inca Trails:

Load up the bikes and get geared up, today we will shred the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Inca trails and Inca Stairs with natural hits and one helluva scree field.

We will take a private shuttle to the Sacred Valley today. We shuttle up to the valley of Lamay. With steep valley sides and littered with small stone pueblos, this valley is sure to impress. 13 km of almost all downhill and some burly Inca stairs, your legs are quick to feel the burn. We will get dropped off at 13,744 ft./4,189m. before descending 4068 ft./ 1239m to the village of Lamay.

Load up again cause now we have the Lares scree field. You know the one in Geoff’s videos?

That’s the one! We will drive up to the Lares pass where we will unload and hike our bikes up to 14,600 feeet/4462m. From there it’s scree and then free ride until we hit ancient Inca trail. Don’t forget your GoPro as we are sure to come upon herds of alpacas and llamas.

We head back to Cusco tonight where the dining is amazing is the drinks even better! 

 

Day 2: The Secrets of the South Valley

This little known hot spot for mountain biking is a favorite for Haku owners Bill and Nic. While living in Andahuaylillas, they spent years exploring and discovering the local foot trails on their bikes.

We will head out today for one of the longer shuttles to the Radar trailhead. This trail will take you along a ridge over 14,000ft/4,468m high and leave you breathless, literally. Drop down into the South Valley on 11 miles/18km of high speed single track.

After Radar we will take you to a secret trail nearby that drops you off at the house of a local. If lucky maybe we can grab a quick lunch with one of our local farming friends of this organic valley.

 

Day 3: Rest day today

.…bike maintenance….eat and sleep…eat some more….and eat again.  Riding at high elevation burns twice the amount of calories.. Stay on top of your game and eat Peruvian superfoods…maca…tarwi….quiona….chia….

 

Day 4: Cusco Shred

Short and sweet are the Cusco Trax. Filled with berms and jumps and wild dogs these trails will have you itching for more. We will shuttle some 5-7 rides in today. 

 

Day 5: Huchuy Qosqo

Pack your bags. Tonight we will sleep in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Today is a pedal day......

We will climb from12,600/3,850m up to 14,100ft/4,316 m before descending on the sweetest, cleanest Inca Trail in the valley. Today will be a long day, bring Clif bars, goo, gels or whatever you use to keep the calorie count up. Make sure to have a large hydration pack for water, tubes and everything you need for the mountains and its crazy weather. We will not see the car for hours. Tonight we will sleep in Ollantaytambo; the closest town to Machu Picchu.

If the weather is dry and you know you won't be looking forward to the climb..... there is the option to hire a 4x4 car to take you almost to the top. The price is 150 USD can can hold 4 people.

Video clips here!

 

Day 6: The Living Incan Village of Ollantaytambo- Rest day….or visit Machu Picchu

Ollantaytambo is known as the living Inca Town. The entire town is made of giant Incan stones and enclosures. You are sure to enjoy this charming village.

You can spend your time recovering from the long climb yesterday, relaxing in the hammocks at the Secret Garden House or stretch your muscles on a hike up to the ruins above town. Don't forget a little bit of bike maintenance, we have more shred days to come.

For those of you with loads of energy you can pedal up to the ruins of Pumamarca and shred that crazy Edge of the world trail you have seen on Geoff’s Instagram. (https://www.instagram.com/p/BTeCaVkBrc-/?taken-by=geoffgulevich)

If you would like to visit Machu Picchu we can organize that for you. The cost is 350 USD pp and includes round trip train ticket, entrance into the sanctuary, and a guide. It does not include a bus ticket in Aguas Calientes. 24 dollars round trip or you can hike it.

 

Day 7: Highest Enduro Race Course in the World-Patacancha

If you thought you were breathless yesterday get ready for today. Today you will ride one of the highest Enduro race courses in the world, Patacancha. This high altitude ride is filled with many spots where you can pick your own lines and traverse through alpaca laden fields but at an elevation of 14,500 feet. Towards the end we can re-load up and have the car take us to Pumamarca with its exposed edges and technical rock gardens to finish the day. This 17 mile/28 km ride will take you all the way into the living Inca town of Ollantaytambo.

 

Day 8: Inca Avalanche DH/Enduro Race Course

Every year hundreds of riders come out for the famous Inca Avalanche Race. Similar to the Mega Avalanche in France this ride takes you close to the glacier of Veronica where you will descend almost 5,000 feet of screaming DH style terrain. Lucky for us it's just our group on the tracks today. If you're looking to ride with the 200 riders for the race, check out our Inca Avalanche Trail festival Package.

Today we will shuttle this ride twice before heading back to the Secret Garden House.

As a group we will discuss what the favorite trail was and where we will ride on day 10.

 

Day 9: Rest day.

…You can visit one of the many sets of ruins in Ollanta, relax or go visit Machu Picchu.
