Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental Launches Self-Guided Luxury Dirt Tour

Dec 20, 2016 View Comments by

Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental has announced its latest self-guided, off-road excursion, called Dirt Deluxe. The new tour combines award-winning luxury accommodations with an exciting unpaved route that takes riders into the more remote and obscure areas of Ecuador, giving a glimpse into ways of life that have largely disappeared.

Cayambe CocaThe six-day tour crisscrosses the northern Ecuadorian Andes, a part of the country that still feels enigmatic, subtly inaccessible, and not saturated with tourists. It’s an area known for its pristine wildlife refuges, coffee plantations, timeworn colonial buildings, and therapeutic hot springs. The recent political settlement in neighboring Colombia allows visitors to safely travel through this exotic region.

Customers are provided a pre-programmed Garmin zūmo GPS unit and a “road book” containing detailed daily routes with genuine points of interest and culinary experiences that are not to be missed along the way. Part of the route—through the Coca-Cayambe Wildlife Reserve—is so pristine and well-protected that it is off limits to motorized traffic, unless you have a special permit, which the company arranges in advance. Likewise, the included luxury hotel accommodations are exclusive, rich in diversity, and each has its own unique regional character.

The tour is available from May – February. Customers can depart any day of the week with advanced reservations. The tour package includes an adventure-ready dual sport (or 4X4 off-road capable pickup truck), saddlebags or luggage, pre-programmed GPS, lunch and dinner each day, and a cell phone for 24-hour customer support. Prices start at $1,915.
