  1. La Paz Day 1

    Arrival in the Bolivian capital at the foot of the impressive Illimani Mountain overlooking the city from a height of 6000 m.

    La Paz is the highest capital in the world – between 3200 m and 4000 m altitude. It is an extraordinary city that offers a unique experience. It’s an eclectic mix of modern and ancient, international and traditional, Western culture and local culture – all mixed together in a whirlwind of chaos and colour.

    Transfer from El Alto Airport to your hotel located in La Paz’s city centre. Free time to relax and take a shower before having lunch and a briefing about the trip.

    In the afternoon, you’ll get a guided english-speaking tour of the city, exploring Sagárnaga Street which is famous in South American for its local artisan stalls, Witches Alley and its amazing products for Andean ceremonies, the traditional markets of San Pedro, the historic centre, and the colonial district. In the late afternoon, we’ll visit Moon Valley with its impressive clay formations that were created through erosion.

    The day is primarily reserved for acclimatizing to the altitude and preparing the bicycles for the days to come.

    Overnight in La Paz.

    (Lunch and dinner included)

  2. La Paz - Copacabana Day 2

    Free morning in La Paz and mid-day transfer to Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

    Check in at the hotel and spend the rest of the day acclimatizing to the altitude and possibly walking a few kilometres around town, enjoy the view of the legendary Lake Titicaca. Given this altitude, the acclimating period is essential to enjoying the rest of your stay in the best condition possible. This free time will also allow you to prepare your bikes for excursions the next day.

    Overnight in Copacabana.

    (Breakfast and lunch included)

  3. Copacabana - Isla del Sol Day 3

    Morning transfer by boat to the Island of the Sun, a mystical island that played a prominent role in the cosmology and beliefs of the Incas.

    We will bring our bikes for the day to explore the island on two wheels.

    The island is dotted with several old Inca trails, letting you travel its length along a relief, alternating between light uphills and downhills. The view of Lake Titicaca is breathtaking – a surreal combination of the blue and emerald waters of the lake in contrast to the sharp snowy peaks of the Royal Bolivian Cordillera. It’s a well-deserved reward for the effort it takes to do the few climbs when oxygen is in short supply, before enjoying the descents that dot the trail.

    Return by boat and spend the night in Copacabana.

    (Breakfast and lunch included)

    Technical cycling info:

    • Distance: 15 km

  4. Copacabana - Sorata (Loma Loma Trail) Day 4

    Epic descent on the trail plunging into the Sorata Valley on a path known as ”Loma Loma”. The trail runs along a rolling cliff overlooking a deep valley at the foot of the Ancohuma and Illampu mountains. The trail is sporty and fun with some technical jumps (not mandatory), and offers a spectacular view of the valley with the snow-capped peaks of the mountain range in the background. Arrive at the end of the day in the small village of Sorata in the Yungas and check in at the hotel.

    Overnight in Sorata.

  5. Sorata (Uchu Trail) Day 5

    Early morning drive from Sorata to the Uchu Pass, but for those who want a bit of a warm up, you have the option of cycling as well.

    Once we arrive, though, it starts to get serious!!

    The first section of the descent is a steep slope on a sand and gravel track… loose ground that lets you ”surf” at high speed for guaranteed thrills! The track continues on an impressive ”singletrack” – with a succession of technical rocky bits, curves, and jumps. It’s a fluid and fast singletrack, that even comes with a natural half-moon! All set against an amazing Andean backdrop that takes you from the snowy peaks to the lush vegetation of the Yungas in a few hours (2 optional descents).

    Free time at the end of the day and overnight in Sorata.

    (Breakfast and lunch included)

The cave shelters an impressive lagoon more than 400 m deep and highlighted by lighting installed by the local communities. It’s possible to take a paddleboat tour for those who really want to pedal just a little bit more.

    This excursion follows the ancient Inca trail of the Choro Trek from ”La Cumbre” 4700 m to Coroico, a peaceful village perched on one of the lush green ridges of the Yungas. The first part starts on a paved road then branches onto a quite technical rocky path. As you descend, the snow of the Cumbre gradually gives way to lush vegetation, ending in the heart of the Yungas Rainforest and its tropical climate … an adventure of pure endurance!
