You're generally comfortable riding all types of terrain in the singletrack realm. Technical features are common here, along with rock gardens and some steeper sections.
There is some climbing on this trip, so make sure you're comfortable with a couple of 500 metre climbs thrown in the mix.
Due to the varied terrain and mix of tech, flow and occassional climb, 150mm of travel front and back is best, with descending focused geometry while still allowing for a comfortable climb. Our pick - A Zerode Katipo!
A mix of single track - high tussock land and ridgeline. Some sections of trail are rocky, with stones, and there's some bike park flow thrown in for good measure.
Some sections of trail in this area are over 500 hundreds of years old - orginally put there as narrow, steep and traversing walking trails by the Incas themselves.
This trip starts and ends in Cusco. You can arrive at any time on Day 1 of the trip. All flights into Peru arrive into Lima. Then it's a short, 1 hour flight to Cusco. Some arrivals into Lima might mean either an overnight stay in Lima or a few hours to wait in Lima airport to the onward flight to Cusco.
For flights home, we recommend booking them no later than 1pm on the last day.
Visas are currently not required for Australian, New Zealand, US, Canadian or UK/EU passport holders wishing to visit Peru. If you are outside these regions, please check with your embassy. You can also check the Visa HQ website for up todate information.
A good guide makes a trip great - a first class guide creates memories that last lifetime. You'll experience your trip with a leadership team who are local, experienced and know more than simple where to go and what to ride. We make sure our trip leaders are engaging, pro-active, passionate, can read the room and are simply a whole lot of fun to be around.
Your head guide for this trip is Stefano Ude. He built a couple of the trails on this trip, and is pretty famous in the Italian mountain bike scene for pioneering new trails in the Dolomites.
Thankfully for us, we reckon they've got the whole star rating thing a bit mixed up in the Dolomites. Technically, we stay in locally owned 3-star rated hotels, but they of a MUCH higher standard than that. Super comfortable, bike friendly, great communal areas to hang out in and tell lies about the lines you took, and awesome hosts who can tell you a few stories about the history of their establishment.
Rifugios - We spend one night high in the mountain in a Mountain Inn. These places, while a little less sofisticated than the hotels we stay in, are simply amazing - cosy, warm, cool dining/lounge areas and a deck with killer views to kick back and have a beverage.
