Mountain Biking in Ecuador

Join on a mountain bike tour through Ecuador’s spectacular countryside. From Quito, cyclists have access to a large diversity of rides ranging from snow-capped Andean volcanoes exhilarating páramo, cloud forest or jungle on hundreds of miles of mostly traffic-free unpaved roads and trails.

Choosing the Trip that’s Right for You:
Mountain biking is a great source of fun and exercise for people of all ages and abilities, but like any activity, there are levels of difficulty that range from quite manageable for most to the very difficult reserved only for truly experienced individuals. We want to make sure that the trip you choose is the one that’s best for you, the one that you will enjoy the most, and so we have classified each of our tours into three categories: easy, moderate, and challenging. In classifying the trips we take into consideration the distance covered, the terrain, weather conditions and altitude. In all cases and as an added precaution, on every trip a driver in a support vehicle closely follows our guests so that anyone in need of a rest can take a break and hitch a ride to continue along with the group.

Trip Levels
Easy: Suitable for most people in good health.
Moderate: Requires a reasonable level of fitness – these trips can require sustained endurance levels, hills, longer days and higher altitudes.
Challenging: Physically demanding and best suited for strong people with a lot of endurance. Days can be long, often at altitude, and in remote regions with tough terrain.
