Peru - The Andean Dream
The Andean Dream
The redspokes Andean cycling tour in Peru is a spectacular way to discover the 'real Peru'; a unique and fascinating country. Our Peru cycling holiday begins in beautiful Arequipa. Peru's second city, Arequipa is also known as La Ciudad Blanca - the White City - for its gleaming colonial buildings built of sillar: a shining volcanic rock. The town is set in stunning mountains and overlooked by the snow-capped El Misti Volcano. As we enjoy teh start of this challenging Peru Cycling Tour from Arequipa to Cusco you will experience close encounters with wildlife and travel through colourful, bustling market towns.
We Cycle along, leaving Arequipa with a dramatic descent of 2,100m, mountain biking down El Misti, a breathtaking cycle ride along the Colca Canyon (reputedly the deepest in the world), unforgettable scenery and glimpses of a way of life that has barely changed in the last 500 years. You will cycle more peruvian trails and visit thermal hot springs, the dramatic salt plains of Salinas, and the fascinating town of Cusco. The final days of our Peru Cycling Tour provides an opportunity to ride right off the beaten track to the high Andes and witness the lifestyle of Peru's indigenous people, which has remained the same for centuries.
For those who wish to dismount the bike and trek the 4 day Classic Inca Trail or the Salkantay Trek we can put you in contact with a local agency to arrange this. Please note permits for the Classic Inca Trail for May are usually fully allocated by January of the same year so it is important to book early.
