Peru - The Andean Dream
The Andean Dream

Overview

The redspokes Andean cycling tour is a spectacular way to discover the 'real Peru'; a unique and fascinating country. Our 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 challenging cycling from Arequipa to Cusco you will experience close encounters with wildlife and travel through colourful, bustling market towns.

We leave 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 visit thermal hot springs, the dramatic salt plains of Salinas, and the fascinating town of Cusco. The final days of cycling provide 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.

In May the 15 day Peru cycling tour includes a vist  to lost city of the Inca's - Machu Picchu.

For those who wish to follow 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.
