Vertigo Biking Co. is an adventure tourism company established in Bolivia and operates under the license of HONEY TOURS & TRAVEL issued by the government of the city of La Paz fulfilling all the legal requirements of a tourism operator.
We have been in the Bolivian market for 9 years offering the biking tour in the famous DEATH ROAD, having an excellent approval and recommendation of a large percentage of the tourists that have accompanied us during all these years, besides being a reference in safety and prevention of possible accidents since we have the most complete rescue equipment in the market and we have original equipment, original brake pads (not riveted) and it is our company's policy to avoid the use of any equipment that does not have international certification or is falsified or highlighted, especially in our Helmets.
Their guides are well trained in first aid in the case of minor accidents and also trained in rescue in case of major accidents. These guys train and participate in downhill races and are expert mechanics in case the group needs assistance. They operate with one guide for every five people on the tour, and have a support vehicle that goes behind everyone with a first aid kit, rescue team, big bottle of water and your belongings.
Our full suspension bikes have hydraulic disk brakes; we use certified and recognized components in the field to guarantee the best of the experiences in the biking tour. We invite you to be part of the adventure and feel the adrenaline with VERTIGO BIKING.

Tour Operator Vertigo Biking
The road takes 64 Kms, we will start from La Cumbre at a height of 4170 metres and the first 45 minutes it will be downhill on a paved road, and then we will continue on an off road. Most of it is downhill and the rest is flat, there are places where you have to pedal, in the middle we will pass under some small waterfalls so you will get wet!
What you get is a full suspension bike with hydraulic disk brakes; our bikes go under maintenance every single day for all the components to work the best way possible!
The safety equipment you get is a full face “sixsixone” certified helmet, kneepads, elbowpads and gloves! For you not to get too dirty we include a jacket and trousers for your comfort!
An English speaking guide goes with you the whole time, we send 1 guide for every 5 people for a better control, for larger groups we also send a mechanic in case of assistance with the bikes. Guides are mechanics and they are proper trained in first aids and rescuing if it comes to be necessary, of course we take our complete rescue equipment as well as a tube of oxygen.
