Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu

12 Days Advanced / Challenging 585 Km

Starting out on the shores of sacred Lake Titicaca, this exceptional biking expedition traverses a rarely visited part of Peru, following little-used dirt roads across the high Andes and passing through stunning scenery en route to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Before setting out on our bikes, we spend time acclimatising and exploring at Lake Titicaca, with an exhilarating boat trip out to the floating reed islands, home of the Uros people. The route has been carefully researched to avoid busy main roads, choosing instead to ride dirt tracks leading to forgotten villages, charming colonial towns, picturesque lakes and high, windswept passes. Much of our ride is on the 'altiplano', a high plain where we encounter llamas, amazing rock formations and the very rare puya raimondii, with its 10 metre-high flower spike. On our journey, we’ll also have a chance to interact with the local people, for many of whom bikes are the preferred form of transport. There are some more technical off-road sections, as we short-cut some of the hairpin descents and take minor singletack detours away from the main trail. The holiday culminates in an early morning visit to Machu Picchu, before the crowds arrive, followed by a final night in the cosmopolitan Andean city of Cusco. Only biked by our groups for the first time in 2010, this ride is set to become an Andean mountain bike classic.
