Downhill Misti Cross Country

Biking tour Misti Downhill - Cross Country

We'll pick you up from your hotel at 08:00 h or 13:00 depending on you. Then we travel for approximately an hour up the south face of the Misti Volcano in our 4wd vehicle. We drive up a dirt track to an altitude of 3400 meters where your guide will explain about the geology and nature. Also he will give us tips of safety on how best to ride of the terrain and get used to the bikes.

There is a dirt track that runs back down to Arequipa and there are different routes that we can take so it is suitable for all abilities. We can just continues by the track or take an off road option. Or both. For more adventurous people riding off the trail is brilliant as we can pick our own paths and it is quite an adrenalin rush as the jumping possibilities are plentiful around the narrow paths, rocks and small canyons. This downhill route takes about 2 hours and we finish off riding down a smooth road into a nice valley, now, you always can extend this biking tour around and cycle in cross country on the out side part of the city which is an interesting detour on a single-track route or to cycle down into the city via Jesus (hot springs). We will end our adventure back at your hotels via our 4wd. This trip takes a total of 5 hours.

This tour includes:

  • Mountain bike Canondale or Trek and equipment
  • English Speaking Guide
  • Box lunch
  • 4wd transport
