The trip in detail

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

This morning an incredibly scenic drive takes us up to the dizzying Amparaes Pass, and to the top of one of the world’s best off-road descents. Section follows section of llama track, gravel riverside, and eventually scenic river gorge. We'll end with an array of undulating forest single track (or take the open, speedy gravel backroad alongside) into the outskirts of Calca. Here we’ll have a late lunch before heading back to Cusco where we’ll drop you off at your accommodations at about 4pm, no doubt with a massive smile beaming across your face!

This is Katy’s favourite mountain bike day in the world.
