Biking Tours
Bike & Hike Ecuador - 8 Days

Duration: 8 Days / 7 Nights
Level of difficulty: Moderate
Participants: 2 pax min.

Introduction:

An excellent opportunity to see a cross section of Ecuador’s ecosystems in 8 days. As we travel, we are dwarfed by the striking Andes Mountains that surround us. You will pedal across the páramo – the Ecuadorian equivalent of the arctic tundra – and down through stunning cloud forest, traversing steep Andean slopes as you descend down into the Amazon basin.

The terrain for this leg of the journey is a combination of dirt and paved roads of scenic rolling hills.

Please note: Tours can be shared with other groups.
