Medium

We will ride approximately 1100 km on a vehicle in order to reach remote locations.

bicycle touring trip on mountain bike. We will have the opportunity to acclimatize at the Quebrada de Humahuaca (between 2200masl and 3500masl). We will appreciate the charms of the place, a wonder of the Argentine Northwest –a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site-. We will enter Bolivia through Villazon and we will ride near Tupiza and Potosi, doing some transfers in order to reach the Salar de Uyuni –the biggest salt desert in the world- where the fascination with space and freedom is magically combined.

From the salt plains we will go to lake Titicaca. We will ride enjoying the panoramic views and a twisting road that will later become a dirt track, in order to enter the Yampupata Peninsula and its rural communities. We will take a boat to the Isla del Sol, a sacred location where the founder of the Inca empire was born. We will do some trekking in the island and appreciate a unique sunset with the reflection of the Cordillera Real on the sacred lake.

Our experience in several previous trips guarantees that the stages, the slow pace and the gradual level differences will help us to get acclimatized in order to enjoy the trip.

Note: in this case –altitude trip- we will ask the participants for a medical check-up, in order to be reassured and safe.
