A biking adventure to remember

"Being in the open countryside, high in the Andes was hard work but brilliant. Hardly a tourist in sight, just us and the occasional group of farmers."

Where to go

The Cusco area and Sacred Valley offer some great mountain biking. If you’re staying in Cusco you can easily spend a day cycling in the Sacred Valley, and the trip will include transfers from and back to your hotel.

When to go

Mountain biking in the Sacred Valley is offered from April to November, avoiding the raining season. In April and June the valley flowers and snow-covered mountains are especially picturesque.

How to do it

We can book the mountain biking trip as part of your holiday. On the day you will need to take a small backpack, bottle of water, torch, cap, sunglasses, insect repellent and a camera.
