Sport and Recreational Ride / Trails for every fitness level / Basic+ Skills 

Paracas (3 days)

This is the second most visited destination by tourists. But far from the classic points, there is a wide open space to see.
At the National Reserve of Paracas a big desert follows the coastline with beaches, cliffs and fishermen points.
As far as we ride we see that the coastline is not the same all the time and landscape changes.
The National Reserve of Paracas is an amazing place for riding.

Season: All the year. Best from October to May.

Average Stats:
200-500 mt Positive Elevation / 30-70 Km / 3-8 hours riding time.

About the Place:

Paracas is one of the most important protected natural areas along the coast, so one important thing is to have a respectful behaviour with the environment and follow the instructions of sustainable visit in a natural area using the marked trails.
At the National Reserve of Paracas, you will enjoy the amazing desert views, aside from the relaxation of the beaches. The route to take will depend on riders’ fitness and basically will take you along beaches and cliffs onto a ground of compact sand known here as conchales by open tracks and gravel roads. No singletracks.
As the ride must be done very early in the morning, the recommendation is to do at least a two-day trip, or three as suggested on our trip plan.

The Spots:

The nearest point: 25 Km / Easy. Cathedral viewpoint and Red Beach.
Mid distance: 40-60 Km / Intermediate. Mendieta beach, Seawolves Viewpoint.
Far far away: 85-100 Km / Intermediate. Laguna Grande.

Important: The trip to Paracas could be extended traveling further to ride in Palpa and Nasca. From Nasca you may fly the Nasca Lines before returning or continue travelling by ground to Arequipa (10 hours) or Cusco (16 hours).
Available by request.

The Trip:

Day 1: Leaving Lima early to ride on our way to South at Mala or Asia valleys. Then, we will continue the trip to Paracas (4 hours) arriving late afternoon. Hotel.
Day 2: Starting around 6 a.m. for a full morning ride to the south side of the reserve. Return to hotel around 1 to 3 pm. Time for an extra activity (ask).
Day 3: A short morning ride in the reserve or boat ride to Ballestas Islands (you cannot leave the place without visiting them). After the ride we will leave Paracas back to Lima, if wind is good enough at that hour, we could leave Paracas on bikes riding by the highway to Pisco city. Arriving Lima at night.

Why rides in Paracas must start at 6:00 am or earlier?
To ride smoothly and fresh we must avoid two things; The heath that gets very strong from 10 am and the wind that startsto blow stronger from 11 am till the afternoon from south to north, and as our riding plan start pointing south, the earliest we start we will profit from the wind on our way back or at leats we will not ride against the wind.

What to bring:
Try to bring your basic equipment: helmet, gloves.
Depending on the level any ride is no less than three hours, so you must carry at least 1 Lt of water, some snacks and fruits.
A wind vest or a couple of layers on winter days and a lot of sunscreen in summer.

 

Some important travel notes: We supply private transportation to have some partial support during the ride. But in case it can be done using public transportation adjusting the schedule..

OUR CONDITIONS:
Any broken or damaged part of the bike or equipment, made intentionally or not, caused by riders or terrain issues must get paid back at commercial prices (ex: frame, levers, gears, derrailleur, tyres, wheels, helmet, gloves, etc).
Any injury caused by any reason during the ride is fully responsability of the rider and any medical or transportation cost must be covered by the rider. This is an adventure sport activity subject by its nature to any kind of non expected events.
