Bike Tours and Bike Rental

March 16, 2018 0 By Olon.ec Team

Being part of the Machalilla National Park, the Green Hills around Olon are ideal to do bike tours, especially when it isn't Beach-Weather. Go through Olons (seasonal) river and follow the paths leading to the (former) Bar/Camping called "Las Cascadas de Alex". You will find a lot of wildlife there, especially swarms of colorful birds and butterflies, and with a bit of luck even some Deer or Howler Monkey's! If you do want Waterfalls, you'll need to wait a bit longer, the path towards Olon's own Falls is still in the planning phase.

While it is possible to be dropped off and picked up by a taxi for a walk in the forest, and you can also rent horses per hour or per tour, it is far nice to explore by bike!

The nice part of Olon's woods start about 7km inland.
From there on, be prepared to cross the small river several times, pick the right kind of footwear!

For Waterfalls, you can try out Dos Mangas, where you can reach some falls with a horseback ride of about 3 hours.

Several options are available, such as renting a bike from one of a few Tour Companies in either Olon or Montañita.

The price is around $15 per day for the bike-rental and $20 per person for a guided tour via:

Some of the nicer hostals and hotels in Olon also have bikes available for their guests, such as:
Apart-Hotel Rincón d'Olón (5 Free Bikes!)
La Casa Naranja
(4 Paid Bikes)

In Olon, there are several options to enjoy the Woods and Hills. Take a bike, horse or taxi and go explore!

Take a few well-fed and small - but very strong - horses into the forested Hills around Olon, and experience some time away from the modern world! Go Horseback riding, the lush tropical forest has many roads to explore, crossing over hills and through valleys. Take the horses with or without a Guide and find some of the tiny towns in the valleys inland, or seek out the waterfalls (most spectacular in the rainy season!) by following the riverbed.
