"This trip was an amazing adventure! We were immersed in the real culture of Peru and got to see parts of the country most tourists would never get to see including some amazing Inca historical sites! The traditional Peruvian food was excellent and our guides were truly outstanding!" Ken Willoughby, CAN

Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

Big, massive, epic downhills - that's the riding on our Inca Adventure. There are few words that can match the grand scale of the mountain biking in the Andes.

From the world's-longest-downhill dropping 11,500 feet to the Pacific Ocean, to the Lares trail starting at 14,500 feet, Peru mountain biking dwarfs anything else on the planet. Get ready to wipe some serious drool off your full-face helmet.

Stand on top of a massive downhill like the Olleros trail and you'll feel pretty big too, with every worry you've ever had in life drifting away into the clouds, replaced by that in-the-moment feeling of pure bliss as the mountains play host to your wildest mountain bike fantasies. Ever experienced a 3-hour downhill? The feeling will stay with you forever.

IS THIS RIDE FOR YOU?

You love downhill riding and have at least a 6" travel full-suspension bike. You can handle technical terrain, with rocky sections, steeps, and terrain features such as old stone steps. You've done some stunt riding and jumps, or wouldn't mind trying (you can ride around all the jumps on the local trails). You're not afraid to get out of your cultural comfort zone and experience something different, like a meal of roasted guinea pig or meeting the elders at a remote village. You like to give back to local communities when you go travelling

Check out our Peace of Mind Policies

Day 1. Arrive in Lima

Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted with a big smile by your Sacred Rides driver, who'll take you to your hotel in Miraflores. You'll get settled in, explore your new surroundings and get a taste of Lima's delicious cuisine.

Day 2. Pachacamac

We'll have a hearty breakfast and build our bikes in the morning. We'll then shuttle over to Pachacamac, a little town located 40km south of Lima famous for its food, Inca sites and thrilling downhill rides. This is the place where ALL mountain bikers from Lima go to revel in remarkable singletrack. We will ride The Prado, Amancaes and Chirimoyo trails, which are full of berms, jumps and man-made stunts. In the evening, we'll return grinning to our hotel in Lima with palms sore from all the high fives.

Day 3. Olleros Epic DH

Santo Domingo de los Olleros, or simply 'Olleros', is located 150km east of Lima on the Lurin Valley and sits at an altitude of 3,150 masl. (10,356 ft.). The start of this trail is located at an altitude of 3,450 mals. (11,319 ft.) and 4 hours away from Lima. The trail is 54km long and is Peru's most famous mountain bike trail. From the start of the trail, on a bright clear day, it's possible to see the Pacific Ocean, which happens to be where we'll end our ride. It's 3,500 meters of epic, drool-inducing, bike-orgasmic vertical awesomeness. Once in San Bartolo beach, we'll wash off dirt and grime and enjoy relaxing views of the Pacific Ocean. We'll then head back to Lima for dinner.

Day 4. Marcahuasi Stone Forest

Marcahuasi is a mountain top plateau located on the Santa Eulalia Valley at an altitude of 4,000 masl. (13,123 ft.) and 150km east of Lima. It takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to reach the town of San Pedro de Casta (3,150 masl / 10,355 ft.), the entrance of Marcahuasi. This place is incredibly unique: on top of the mountain is a spectacular 'stone forest' with many zoomorphic and anthropomorphic rock formations. According to shamans and 'curanderos', it's a spiritual place where contact with other worlds can occur.

We will pick you up from your hotel at 6:00am to ride one of the best downhills in the world. Our first stop is the town of San Pedro de Casta, where we will start with a one-hour ride on horseback to the Marcahuasi plateau. We will visit the pre-Inca graves, the fortress, the lake and all the rock formations, before we start a thrilling descent that will take us to the town of Huinco in the Santa Eulalia Valley. This trail has a vertical descent of almost 3,000 meters (9,842 ft.) and will take us three hours to complete. We plan to return to Lima by approximately 6:00 pm.

Day 5. Transfer to Cusco & Yuncaypata Downhill.

Early in the morning, we'll hop on a flight to Cusco, the center of the Inca Empire. We'll then grab a hearty breakfast and prep our bikes for the glorious day ahead. We'll have our first ride on an Inca trail descending from the mountain pass of Corao at an altitude of 3,770 masl (12,368 ft.), crossing different agricultural fields, Inca sites and finish on the bottom part of Cusco.  At the end of the ride, we'll return to Cusco and get ready to visit one of the best restaurants in town. We'll then get to enjoy the nightlife of this Imperial city.

Day 6. Chinchero,  Racchi and Maras Downhills

We'll transfer early in the morning to the town of Chinchero at 3,750 masl (12,327 ft.), the start of one of the most demanding downhill trails in Cusco. We are going to cross the Inca site of Chinchero with its incredible stone architecture and infinite rock steps to then enter into a deep canyon that will take us directly to the Sacred Valley at the village of Urquillos (2,950 masl / 9,697 ft.). This is a one hour downhill with more than 750 meters of vertical descent. We'll shuttle up to the top for the next descent and this time we'll start near the Inca site of Racchi on a natural lookout of the Vilcanota Mountain Range. This is an amazing Inca trail that descends to the Sacred Valley following steep lines and tight corners. Time for lunch in Urubamba, the main city in the Sacred Valley. After lunch, we'll transfer to Maras to ride another impressive Inca trail with stunning views of the glaciers. We'll pass by the village of Maras and the pre-Inca salt mines that are simply amazing. It's a one hour downhill that will leave us near Ollantaytambo. Finally, we'll be transferred to the town of Ollantaytambo where we'll be staying for the next 3 nights.

Day 7. Machu Picchu (optional) or Sacred Valley rides

This day is supposed to be a rest day, but in Peru we have so much to see that there's little time for rest. We recommend you visit Machu Picchu as an option for this day. The tour starts with a train ride from Ollantaytambo to the town of Aguas Calientes. From there we'll take a bus up to the Citadel. Machu Picchu (like most of the Quechua names of towns and different sites in the region) is a compound word that comes from Machu = old or ancient, and Picchu = peak or mountain; therefore, Machu Picchu is translated as "Old Mountain". The famous mountain that appears in most of the classical views of the site is named Wayna Picchu (Young Mountain). We'll have the entire day to explore the remarkable citadel and learn about its well-preserved secrets. If you opt out of visiting Machu Picchu, you'll have the option of sampling the trails from day 8 in the Sacred Valley with your guide.

N.B. the trip to Machu Picchu is not included in the trip price. The cost to visit Machu Picchu is $310 Cdn/person, which includes return train ride to Aguas Calientes, bus to Machu Picchu, admission and guide.

Day 8. Megavalanche Downhill Course.

Today, we'll ride the Megavalanche downhill course where the likes of Steve Peat, Cedric Gracia and Brian Lopes have duked it out. We start with a one hour bus drive to the Mountain pass of Malaga at 4,350 masl (14,300 ft.), where we'll have great views of such glaciers as the Veronica Summit at more than 5,000 meters (16,500 ft.). The trail starts with a wide singletrack on top of the mountain and then turns to a narrow trail with many obstacles like rock steps, jumps and close turns. It will take us approximately one hour to complete the trail until we reach the village of Tanjca in the Sacred Valley at an altitude of 2,850 masl (9,370 ft.). We plan to ride this amazing trail twice.

Day 9. Lares Inca Trail.

We'll transfer early in the morning to the town of Calca in the Sacred Valley and then climb to the mountain pass of Lares, located at 4,350 masl (14,300 ft.) where we'll start another epic ride going through an impressive Inca trail that follows a narrow valley with big walls of granite. We'll then enter one of the most impressive landscape in Peru, crossing a deep canyon one can access only by foot or by bike. We'll pass through different terrain types, from flat rocky surfaces on top of the mountain to fertile valleys towards the end of the trail. We'll end this epic ride in the town of Calca in the Sacred Valley at an altitude of 2,900 masl (9,533 ft.). After lunch, we'll transfer back to Cusco where we'll end our day riding another Inca trail that descends to the center of the city.

Day 10. End of trip

We have reached the last day of our amazing Ride in Peru and its time to say goodbye to Cusco and its wonderful Inca Trails. Flights depart daily at 8:45, 9:55, 11:05 and 13:30, making it possible to do some shopping in the Indian markets of Cusco or go on a morning ride in the Cusco area.

  • 9 nights accommodation

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage, is compulsory for all our tours. We recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation protection so that you will be covered in the event that you are unable to attend our tour (due to injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstances) or in the unlikely event that our tour must be cancelled.

You can purchase discounted comprehensive insurance from our partners at Bikeflights.com directly via our site at our insurance page.

Arrival and Departure Airport

You should fly into and out of Lima International Airport (LIM). Please see the schedule page for the exact pickup and dropoff times for your particular trip. You can, if necessary, arrive earlier - we will arrange a pickup for you.

Pickup & Drop-off Information

Included in the price of your trip is a free shuttle from the airport to our hotel in Lima. Upon leaving customs and heading into the main passenger pickup area of Lima airport, look for your shuttle driver with a Sacred Rides sign in his/her hand. We will have a pre-arranged shuttle booked for you to take you to the hotel. n.b.: You will need to notify us in advance of your flight number and arrival time by filling out your Rider Dashboard. If your flight is delayed and you happen to miss your pickup shuttle, head to the Taxi Green counter located outside customs and we'll reimburse your cab fare.

On the last day of the trip, there are 4 daily flights from Cusco to Lima, at the following times: 8:45, 9:55, 11:05 and 13:30. The flight takes about an hour and a half, and the airport shuttle to Cusco airport is included in your tour price (provided you are staying in Cusco). 

Since most flights back to North America, and some European flights, depart late at night, you can either check your bags in for your flight home if possible, or check them in at the baggage storage area. You can then head into Lima for dinner if you prefer not to stay at the airport.

Meeting Time on Arrival Day

 

On arrival day (Day 1 of the itinerary), we'll meet at 6:30pm at the hotel lobby to go out for dinner in Miraflores. If you're arriving later than 6:30pm, we'll meet again at 9:00am once again in the hotel lobby to build our bikes and get ready for an amazing adventure.

Flights

We do not book international flights for our clients. Please contact your local travel agent for information on booking flights for this trip.

Baggage Fees on Peruvian Flights

Baggage limit: 2 bags and 23Kg in total (including bike). Weight excess fee is $2 USD per extra kg.

Machu Picchu and extending your trip

Machu Picchu is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a can't-miss destination in Peru. We offer an excellent one-day visit to Machu Picchu for $310 CAD, which includes, return train trip through the Sacred Valley, bus to Machu Picchu, admission, permits and guide.

If you want to extend your trip by arriving early or staying on after your trip, we have several excellent trip extensions:

These trips can be booked online when making your original booking or can be added to your booking at any time. n.b.: There is a single supplement fee for solo travellers if there is no one that we can pair you up with.

Extra Hotel Nights

If you are planning on spending a few extra nights in either Lima or Cusco before or after your Ride, we can book extra nights for you at the same hotels we'll be using during the trip. These extra nights can be added at the time of your booking, or anytime afterwards up until a month prior to your departure. Nightly rates are as follows:

Lima: $155 CAD (single room) | $180 CAD (double room)

Cusco: $95 CAD (single room) | $120 CAD (double room)

Fitness Requirements

You should have a moderate level of fitness (yes, downhilling is physically demanding too!) and be able to bike for up to five hours a day in order to fully enjoy the spectacular scenery and riding on this trip.

We recommend you train in advance of this trip, in order to get the most out of this trip. Our instructors have developed a pre-trip training program for Riders interested in a professional, supervised training program. Visit our pre-ride training page for more information.

Travelling with your bike

Pika Packworks bag

If you've never traveled with your bike, don't worry - it's much easier than you think! If you don't have a case for your bike, then you can pick up a cardboard travel box for your bike at your local store. Some stores will also pack your bike up for you for a fee.

Alternately, if you are planning on traveling with your bike more than just this one time, we sell travel bags for bikes, handmade by Pikapackworks. These travel bags are specially made for bikes and can often go on flights without having to pay the extra charges incurred by cardboard boxes or hard cases. Click here for more information on our bags.

n.b. you will need to pay an extra fee for traveling with your bike on the flights within Peru. Cost is about $10-$20 USD in each direction.

Bike Rentals

We strongly recommend you bring your own bike on this trip (you will ride better on your own, familiar bike), but do offer a small selection of Enduro/Freeride bikes, including Pivot Firebird, Santa Cruz Nomad and Transition Covert. Price is $750 CAD for the duration of the trip, but please check-in with us beforehand to see if we can accommodate your specific size.

What type of bike should you bring?

We recommend you bring a high-quality enduro or beefy all-mountain bike with you on this trip, with at least 6" of travel and front & rear hydraulic disc brakes (8" rotors are preferable). A bike with at least 2 rings up front is recommended as there are a few short climbs on this trip, so you will appreciate being able to ride your bike rather than pushing. Please don't bring single wall tires - there are many sharp rocks thorns on the trails in Peru. We highly recommend running tubeless tires.

Armor and Helmet

We recommend you bring at least arm and leg protection with you. Full-body protection is not mandatory, but if you have some it certainly wouldn't hurt to bring it. Full-face helmets are required for this trip, and we recommend goggles to go with your helmet.

Tools to bring

  • multitool (preferably with chainbreaker)
  • tire levers
  • small bottle of chain lube
  • tire pump
  • suspension pump
  • sealant (if you're on tubeless)

Spare parts for your bike

Although there are some parts available locally, we recommend you bring the following parts with you to Peru to avoid problems in case of breakdown or broken parts:

  • rear derailleur hanger (at least 1, preferably 2)
  • front and rear brake pads
  • extra chain if your chain is more than 6 months old
  • 4 tubes
  • 2 extra spokes

N.B. If you are renting a bike, the above is not necessary (with the exception of a few spare tubes).

Packing List

  • comfortable clothes for riding, such as biking jerseys and padded shorts. 2+ sets are ideal, 1 is a must.
  • full face helmet
  • bike gloves (2 sets is ideal)
  • lightweight, weather-resistant outerwear for riding in inclement weather.
  • warm clothing such as sweaters and fleece jackets and pants for nighttime.
  • sunglasses/eye protection for sunny and/or muddy days.
  • hydration system that can carry at least 2 litres (bottles and/or hydration pack)
  • toiletries i.e. toothbrush, shampoo, soap
  • camera
  • sunscreen and insect repellent

Weather and Clothing

The weather in the Peruvian lowlands can be quite warm, with highs between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. However, it can and will get quite cool in the mountains, especially at higher altitudes where it can get as low as 5 degrees Celsius (41 Fahrenheit). We recommend you bring layered clothing that you can wear while riding and in the evenings (e.g. start your ride with a long-sleeve jersey in the morning and then take off a layer once you warm up). You'll want to bring long pants and a light jacket for the evenings spent up in the mountains.

Although rain is rare in the winter months, it isn't unheard of, so we recommend you bring some sort of rain gear or shell.

Passports & Visas

All travelers require a valid passport (with a minimum of 6 months validity). Citizens of some countries will also require a visa. For more information, visit the World Travel Guide website.

Altitude

Much of the riding on this trip occurs at moderate to high altitude (2,000 m/6,600 ft to 4,500m/14,000 ft.). If you are in decent shape without any lung conditions, the acclimatization we do at the start of the trip should be more than sufficient. If you are concerned about your ability to deal with altitude we recommend arriving a day or two early and doing some extra riding in the Lima area. Please contact our office to enquire about additional riding/acclimatization days. So far we have had no clients experience anything more severe than a mild headache or sinus congestion.

We do recommend you bring Diamox, just in case.

Emergency Contacts

If you need to contact us in an emergency, you can reach us during office hours at the following numbers:

Dialing within North America: 1 (888) 423-7849
Dialing outside of North America: +1 (647) 999-7955

If you feel that you need to contact us outside of office hours, our Peru operations manager Wayo Stein can be contacted at +51-1-99511-7026

If you do not receive an immediate answer when calling the above numbers, please leave us a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Meals and snacks

On this trip, all breakfasts and lunches are included. Dinners are typically taken in local restaurants and are not included in the trip price. You should budget $10-$15 CAD per dinner (depending on the quality of restaurants you choose). We take care to select restaurants that are well-regarded for their cleanliness, in order to avoid food-borne illness. We also supply you with bottled water for drinking for the duration of your trip, and lots of snacks on a daily basis like energy bars, nuts, fruit and chocolate. 

There is always some risk of contracting a food-borne illness when traveling in a developing country. We recommend you exercise caution when purchasing food, and avoid unwashed fruit and vegetables and improperly cooked meals.

Laundry

Laundry facilities are readily available on most nights throughout the trip. It will be very easy and cheap for you to do laundry, so do keep that in mind when packing your bags. Laundry service is available at our hotel in Cusco for a small fee.

Other expenses and best ways to get/use money

Other expenses include souvenirs, alcoholic beverages, optional activities such as massage and extra baggage weight. 

The best way to pay for these services is to withdraw money from an ATM in Lima or Cusco with your bank card - you can withdraw local money and will usually be charged the best rate by your bank at home. However, you will typically be charged about $5 per transaction, so we recommend withdrawing enough for 2 or 3 days at a time to avoid paying bank fees every day.

Vaccination Requirements

Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before your trip. Although vaccinations are not required, we highly recommend getting vaccinated for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Typhoid. We will not be visiting any yellow fever areas on this Ride. For the most up-to-date information, please visit your local travel clinic or the CDC website.

Safety & Security

Peru is a very safe country, however certain precautions should be followed, as with all foreign travel. To maximize your safety during our tours you should exercise common sense and caution at all times. We recommend that you always stick to set travel arrangements, and avoid unknown areas. We also recommend that you wear minimal jewelry and that you keep valuable items safely stored. Always keep a copy of your passport, airline tickets, travelers checks and credit card numbers separate from where you keep the originals.

Tipping

Gratuities of 5-10% are common in Peru. We encourage you to tip your guides if you feel you have received excellent service and have had an enjoyable trip. A typical gratuity $20 - $100 per guide.

Currency exchange

The Peruvian currency is the Nuevo Sol. For the latest currency exchange information use the Yahoo! Currency Exchange Calculator

If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.
