This 1-day biking tour of the Rio Cipreses Nature Reserve is an unmissable opportunity to cycle through some stunning landscapes and see an amazing variety of birds in their natural habitat, from Andean Condors to Chilean Blue Eagles.
As well as being rich in wildlife and flora, the Rio Cipreses Nature Reserve is packed with history and your mountainbike will take you through areas visited by some fascinating characters. Further back in time the Reserve, where Indian tribes left their mark with petroglyphs depicting the Sun god, was part of the Inca Empire, and you'll pass through areas once visited by Charles Darwin during his research trip to Chile.
Luckily, the notorious bandits and highwaymen who roamed the area throughout the 19th century have long since disappeared and the 37,000 hectares of forest, blue mountain lagoons, ravines and glaciers is now the peaceful refuge for a vast array of birds, such as the Burrowing Parrot, Lesser Horned Owl, Plumbeous Rail, Torrent Duck, Chilean Mocking Bird, Patagonian Tyrant and Black-Billed Shrike-Tyrant. Indeed, the Rio Cipreses Nature Reserve is one of just two places in Chile where the adorable but endangered Burrowing Parrots can still be found.
