The mountain biking to Coroico starts at 7:30 a.m. when we pick you up from your hotel. We then go by transport to La Cumbre (1hr. From La Paz), which is the starting point at 4.700 m.a.s.l.
First, we start with a 22 km downhill on asphalt (tarmac) road. At the police checkpoint (after 45 min.) all tourists pay 50 Bs for the entrance to the national park. This first section is for you to develop confidence and get used to the bike. Don’t worry, the safety van is always behind the group and we have water stops, photos and bike checks.
We then hit “Death road” always in a compact group (safety first!!!). We will take some snack breaks for chocolate, fruit and more. Finally, the end of the tour is in Yolosa (a town 20min. from Coroico) arriving to Yolosa at 12:00 aprox. At this point we arrive so dirty that we need a shower, so the next stop is in a hotel with showers, a swimming pool and a buffet lunch as well. We can enjoy Coroico´s weather for a couple hours. Coroico is a warm, tropical town at a much lower altitude than La Paz.

This amazing place currently serves as a museum.
Following this jam-packed morning, after lunch you’ll carry on to “Isla Incahuasi” (Fish Island), where you will have time to take a hike to the top of the island to see giant cacti, and rock formations made of petrified coral.
