From a different perspective - Biking Incan Trails
Peru has one of the largest networks of Inca and mountain biking trails in South America. Biking always gives a different perspective on a place bringing you closer to the land and its people. Bike to amazing sites, pass through remote villages and you will interact with local Andean communities.
Post-pandemic, locked-down lives have given us all a new found appreciation of the outdoors and activity right? That sense of freedom, and you don’t have to be an adventure enthusiast either! Also, it’s amazing how many perspectives we can have on a place just by seeing it differently! Something as simple as biking! In fact Peru does have one of the largest networks of biking trails in South America. And we’d like to take advantage of it! So where better to cycle than in and around the holy Inca land – Sacred Valley! Ergo in your search for Ayni, you get a full day biking a versatile route. Along with a good dose of adrenaline, you’ll get spectacular vistas of mountains and open valleys as you swerve and meander through remote villages, narrow trails, fields and scattered Inca ruins. There is something magical about getting onto a bike, breathing in the crisp air and pushing yourself forward. Cycling towards a destination or up to a point gives a sense of achievement and with breathtaking (pun probably intended) finishes in the midst of gorgeous landscapes and views, always brings out the greatness, physical and metaphorical, of nature. The emotions and motivation that these rides can evoke are a great way to connect with a place, its stories, its history, its hopes for the future. It is a great way to reconnect with our own feelings of pure, unadulterated wonder for the world.
