Since the mid-80’s, every April 19 World Bicycle Day is celebrated with the purpose of promoting this mode of transportation –the cleanest of them all– and to highlight its health benefits.
Aware of these advantages and of the satisfaction that comes from riding a bike, at explora we have made bikes a true partner in our explorations. We offer more than 15 guided bike rides to explore Atacama and Easter Island in Chile, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru.
Some of the options we suggest our travelers include biking to archaeological remains with views to the Pacific Ocean, or at more than 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) above sea level in the Andean high plains. Explorations can be a full or half a day and range from beginner to expert levels.
Discover some of our bicycle explorations and dare to explore our destinations on wheels. Here are some ideas for you to start thinking about your next adventure.
This half-day exploration for beginners starts descending from upper Sacred Valley through a well kept road, with amazing views to the mountains up to the banks of the Urumbamba River. The second part of the tour follows through a plot along the river, passing through orchards, prairies and houses, in addition to Inca vestiges and farming platforms.
Tahai is an exploration that tours different archaeological sites in Easter Island. It has an intermediate difficulty level and takes about 4 hours. We first bike from the hotel to Ahu Akivi, the platform of seven moai looking towards the ocean. Then, we follow up to the Te Peu archaeological site where we visit an ancient Rapa Nui village, to finally reach one of the Island’s landmarks: the Tahai Ceremonial Complex.
This full-day exploration is our first bicycle route to the Andes high plains. We take a van to the Argentinean border and then bike at an altitude of over 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) through plains and among colored mountains. This remote experience is a challenge worth taking.
