Biking, Venezuela

Enthusiasm for mountain and road biking is on continuous rise in Venezuela since a couple of years ago which is reflected in the opening of new routes all along this south american country.

The main center for biking trips is the city of Merida, the historical capital of the Venezuelan Andes. Pedal to the quaint village of La Azulita, reached through a marvelous cloud forest, rounded off with a fantastic downhill or perhaps to Los Nevados, a remote farming settlement at 8,500 feet. Another great ride starts in Mucuchies, a charming town dating back to 1596 along the Trans-Andean Highway, and head into the Sierra Nevada National Park, crossing a mountaintop wilderness preserve. A typical day's ride covers some 35 miles, depending on the terrain and your experience. Most riders spend about 60% of their time exploring on paved mountain roads, and the rest on dirt trails. New front suspension 9 speed Jamis mountain bikes are provided or bring your own pedals. Mountain Biking itineraries in the Andes are generally 4 or 5 nights. Nine night Awesome Andes tours natural monuments, national parks, glacier lakes and colonial towns. Combine biking and sightseeing with hiking and whitewater rafting in our 10 night Andes Multi-Activity Adventure. Both tours feature stays in the award-winning Estancia Mucunuy.

Bike from La Paragua on the edges of Guri Lake to Canaima in Venezuela's Lost World, on the road from Puerto Ordaz to Santa Elena de Uairen that passes through the Gran Sabana where tepuis dominate the topography. All tours will be private with a bilingual guide and designed with fitness levels in mind.
