At the beginning of the 1900 years German and Swiss immigrants set up on the east side of the “Sierras Grandes” in Cordoba Province.
They left a deep legacy and noticeable influence that lasted beyond the time. Green pines forests,”alpine looklike” fields and mountain dirt roads are part of the adventure. La Cumbrecita, with its Tirolese air is a tiny little town where you can buy chocolate or “handmade” beer. The small wooden houses will help you believe you are travelling along the Swiss Alps.
This is really and adventure for mountain biking! We’ll have uhphills, downhills, enjoy some technical riding. Even crossing rivers through a tiny hanging bridge!

Day 1 Camino al Río Los Espinillos
Time for breakfast and a short tour introduction. After setting our gear, we leave the place and we drive to the west coast of “Lago Los Molinos”. There we set bikes and start pedalling uphill towards the beatiful “Sierras grandes”. After 15km we detour and leave the gravel road to get in to a jeep track and from now we´ll have one 4×4 as support vehicle.
The track, nearly a singletrack, is fantastic for mountain biking! We’ll have uhphills, downhills, enjoying some technical riding. We’ll all meet again in “Los Espinillos” river and we’ll cross it through a tiny hanging bridge! Some more ups and downs through pine forests to finally arrive to a paved road that will lead us to our hotel. Dinner will be organized in the Club House by “Los Molinos”.
