We’ll pick you up from your hotel at 9am and drive up to 4,500m (14,500 feet) Amparaes Pass. We’ll descend from the top of the pass, down easy gravel road or single track into the remote Lares Valley, starting in high-altitude rock and cold, and ending up in a warm, green river gorge.
The chance to enjoy a beer and barbecue at the surreal and beautiful water park that is Lares hot springs is worth a trip in itself. Naturally occurring hot springs are surrounded by lovingly landscaped terraces and lawns dotted with tents. This is one of our favorite places in the world – there is no better end to a day’s riding than soaking in the springs and staring up at the stars.
Meals: Lunch and dinner included
Accommodation: Camping or basic lodging within the Lares hot springs complex
