This 4-hour-biking tour is an exciting adventure around the huge Misti volcano that is prominently visible in the distance from Arequipa. You will get picked up at around 8.00 from your accommodation in Arequipa and board our 4x4 that will take you up to the foot of the volcano at an approximate height of 3400 meters. Here, you will be given a all your equipment and short briefing before starting your bike tour.
You will get to bike down some fun downhill unpaved sections at first (a bit technical but perfectly suitable for beginners as well - you can take it easy) and then continue along a paved road till you reach the town of Chiguata. From there, you will have to face quite a challenging (partly due to the altitude) dirt uphill section of the trail - the wonderful scenery surrounding you will give you the energy to go over it before heading back to the city where you will get dropped off back at your hotel.
In total, you will be biking for some 45 km in approximately 3 hours. In spite of the last uphill section, the ride is mainly downhill and the lowest point will be at around 2400 meters above sea level.
