What You Can Expect

Death Road: Mountain Bike Tour on the World's Most Dangerous Road

Experience an exhilarating mountain-biking adventure!

Greet your team of expert guides at a central La Paz location and climb aboard an air-conditioned vehicle for the hour-long ride to La Cumbre, a place whose name translates as ‘the summit’. On arrival, disembark and absorb the spectacular surroundings as your guide provides an in-depth safety briefing. Capture photographs of the low-slung clouds and forest-smothered mountains before jumping onto your bike and embarking on the ride of your life. 
Begin your death-defying descent of a serpentine road termed Camino de la Muerte, or Death Road, by Bolivian locals. Enjoy the adrenaline surges as your soar down a road christened the world’s most dangerous by numerous organizations; feel the wind in your hair and the frantic race of your heart as you descend 11,800 feet (3,600 meters) downhill. 
Stop intermittently along the way to revitalize with water and snacks and to capture photographs of the dramatic scenery. Enter the subtropics of the dense Amazonian jungle and commence the most difficult part of the ride; avert your gaze from the sheer drops of 3,300 feet (1,000 meters), beside which there appears to be little path, and focus on the refreshing mist coming from waterfalls on your right. 
Arrive at the village of Yolosa and return to the safety of a main road for the smooth ride to La Senda Verde Ecotourism Resort. Revitalize with a steaming shower or plunge into the cool waters of the swimming pool, and then appease your appetite with a hearty pasta buffet. Observe a colorful tableau of rescued wildlife and take in the spectacular jungle scenery as you rest aching muscles. 
Return to the minivan for the scenic drive back to La Paz after relaxing thoroughly. Opt to stay over night in La Senda Verde or venture to Coroico, a beautiful town surrounded by the verdant splendor of the jungle.

Awesome. The ride down was great. The van ride up after was truly terrifying. Robbie, the guide, was very professional and safety-minded. Also, he was very informative. When I go back to Bolivia, I will definitely do this again.

We had an amazing day with Gravity Assisted!! Steven, Cesar and Cameron were great! They made sure everyone was comfortable, equipped and having a good time. Lots of stops made for everyone to catch up and snacks too : Buffet at Senda Verde was just ok, could have had more variety and was a bit cold. I also would have enjoyed if the monkey tour would have been included in the visit instead of being additional, however I liked how we stopped here and could contribute to this non-profit organization.

Wow what a thrill! There were about 12 of us in the group (this company doesn't go out in big groups) and two guides. We did some practice runs in a parking lot to get used to the bikes then hit the first paved downhill part. That was already the beginning of the adventure - you can go as fast as you want, really, with one guide in front and one guide at the back. You stop from time to time to take some breaks, take pictures, talk to guides etc. Then off to Death Road - the main part of the ride. SO much fun, again, stopping to take breaks every 15 - 20 minutes or so. But you can go at your pace, slow or fast (I wouldn't recommend going too fast!), which makes it fun since you don't have to wait around for the whole group. Definitely worth doing, highly recommend this company and an experience that is a must-do when in Bolivia!
