We arrive in Matanzas in time to enjoy the sunset with a welcome drink on the beach lounge. Check in and dinner in Surazo Restaurant with the briefing from the guides.
After the super healthy breakfast looking at the ocean, the first day begins with a ride through the trails right in our doorsteps. We will visit the OMZ Bike Park, enjoying its 3 totally flowy descents. To finish this round, we will go to the vertiginous La Trilla, a descent that leaves breathless all the courageous riders who dare to roll for this scenic trail. We can have lunch in the hotel or local fishermen restaurants and small shops in the Caleta with a fresh ceviche!

The second day begins with a free morning to practice surfing* to then go for the a well-deserved lunch. For the afternoon, we go to the Maitén sector and tour the trails of a private bike park and the local secret “La Gozadora” ("the joyfull”). All this can take up to 4 hours to ride all the trails. We will return to the hotel and have a toast again while enjoying the last pacific sunset!
(* For those who do not dare to surf, there is an option to go pedaling through the sector with the guides exploring some new trails.)
