I have done two downhills before in South America but this one has it all. Asfalt, stones, avalanches, great views and a refreshment down in the river with No Fear. Great agency that takes lots of foto's and lets you choose from 4 different bikes.

Brilliant tour with amazing views Tough day in the saddle not due to the exertion required but due to the concentration required Very easy trek for an experienced mountain biker though

Don't miss it. Beautiful and deadly to the foolish. Hard to believe it once was used for trucks and buses. Keep your cool, hire a guide and breathe it in.

I absolutely loved this because I felt that anyone could do it. Of course I saw a lot of young backpackers, but I also saw older people!! Granted you get a good company- everything will be soughted out for you on the day. Make sure they offer you good safety equipment. I went with xtreme downhill and they were amazing.... More

I wasn't sure if to do this tour or not because before I listened different opinions. Some people love it, some people hate it. Well in my case I'm closer to the hate it. It wasn't too bad but it's anything spectacular and scare as people things. It's just a dangerous road where you go by bike on the right... More

Great experience and thrilling to drive a bike so close to the edge. Didn't feel unsafe at any point but still you have to pay a lot of attention to where you go and how to use the breaks. Went with Altitude and I can only recommend them. Probably not good for people who are afraid of heights. When you... More

Great place,landscaping. I had the opportunity of descending riding a bike with a tour organized by the Altitud Adventures travel agent. So I must say that is a wonderful location.65 km of breathtaking views, starting at 4.200 m, finishing at 1.200,great nature,waterfalls,jungle. Unforgettable place

We just returned from an awesome day with Space Biking. I'd read plenty of reviews but hadn't heard of Space Biking (our guide told us they have only been operating 9 months or so) until we randomly went into a travel agent on Saganaga Street to check their prices. We decided to take a chance on Space Biking because it... More
