The Valdes Peninsula in Argentina is home to our locally crafted MTB adventures! You can experience the incredible life of mountain biking and at the same time, really immerse in nature itself and enjoy this unique environment!

More in one…

The geography of this place allows, that many different activities happen within close proximity. Our tours are therefore combining cycling across the peninsula with other activities so that each day offers a completely new adventure!

Personally crafted…

What is more, all tours are tailor-made. The itinerary can be therefore slightly changed due to your wishes. And, of course, those of Mother Nature’s. This means that tours can variate according to the weather conditions.:) However, routes will be designed only after speaking with you. They can also include an additional set of activities along the way. Some ideas for you to think about: hiking to penguin colonies, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling with seals, whale watching, stand up paddle boarding to name a few. For a truly all-encompassing MTB adventure, this tour is the only choice for you!
