We've got our sights set on Bolivia and Colombia in late April. At 19,974 feet this summit in South America beckons. We have added a mountain biking itinerary for those who wish to mix a little hiking with some bomber downhill riding. Do you have what it takes to tackle this kind of altitude? email me and let's discuss it. I'd love to have you join our fun loving team.

The mountain biking to Coroico starts at 7:30 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel. We then go by transport to La Cumbre (1hr. From La Paz), which is the starting point at 4.700 m.a.s.l.
First we start with a 22 km downhill on asphalt (tarmac) road. At the police checkpoint (after 45 min.) all tourists pay 25 Bs for the entrance to the national park. This first section is for you to develop confidence and get used to the bike. Don’t worry, the safety van is always behind the group and we have stops for water, photos and bike checks.
We then hit “Death road” always in a compact group (safety first!!!). We will take some snack breaks for chocolate, fruit and more. Finally the end of the tour is in Yolosa (a town 20min. from Coroico) arriving to Yolosa at 12:00 aprox. At this point we arrive so dirty that we need a shower, so the next stop is in a hotel with showers, a swimming pool and a buffet lunch as well. We can enjoy Coroico´s weather for a couple hours. Coroico is a warm, tropical town at a much lower altitude than La Paz.
At approximately 2:00 p.m. it´s time to go back to La Paz using the new road.
On every ride we have English speaking guides, with years of experience who are first-aid and rope rescue trained and we ride with you so we can watch your riding and offer advice, tips where appropriate, plus be on-hand to immediately attend to medical or mechanical problem.
We then have the option of a rest day and several other mountain biking loops such as the Jungle Tour.
