River Explorers delivered more that we expected. The guide was patient and good, the meals where incredibly deliciude for a outdoor activity, we even had a support vehicle all the way, can’t ask for more!!!
Lares is the prefect place to practice different kind of outdoors activities including biking. This ultimate adventure crosses 3 different ecosystem with outstanding views of snow caped mountains, valleys, river, canyons and charming villages. The downhill stars at 4568 meters – 14987 ft feet sea level and ends at the Amazonian rain forest at 769 m – 2523 ft. sea level.
This gem is still untouched by tourist companies, and proudly we are the only outfitter that offer this unforgettable experience. The biking is easy and is available for all ages and abilities, but it can also satisfied experience bikers by choosing of road circuits. What makes this tour special apart of the number of sites that we encounter in the way is the thermal baths, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the hot waters of Lares hot-springs. An adventure for the entire family!
