La Paz - Coroico

You will be picked up by our private transportation at a central meeting point in the city of La Paz. You will then be driven to the top of the worlds most dangerous road. Before setting off you will be given a full set of safety gear including helmet, high vis jackets and gloves. The guides will then give a thorough safety briefing and explain exactly how to stay safe on the road. You will then begin the descent. The first section of the road is wide tarmac and great for getting warmed up. Then you will all jump back into the vehicle to skip a small uphill section. You will then arrive at beginning of the true death road. Here you will be given another safety briefing and get your first view of the winding road ahead of you down the mountain. As this is mainly all downhill you will need to concentrate on control of your bike and not so much pedaling. Throughout your journey, you will ride through a number of different terrains. From dusty dry road to rocky stones and you will even pass under some waterfalls. The views from the road are unbeatable and plenty of stops will be made to appreciate it and take photos. The ride to the bottom will take around 4-5 hours of pure exhilarating adventure. You will arrive at Yolosa where you stop for lunch, a shower and even a swim in the river if you want! Towels will, of course, be provided. You will now have the choice to do the optional 'Flying Fox' zip line. Three exciting sections covering 1555 meters with speeds of up to 85km/hr.
