Oliver Imfeld (Switzerland): Review Bike Trip Chapada Diamantina (Novembre 2013)

Our tour guide Rik booked us in the lovely and calm Pousada Helia where we had such a delicious breakfast, the perfect start for an excellent day. At 9 o'clock Rik brought us our brand new bikes, 29er Cube. The bikes were very good, just to much air at the beginning which was not necessary since we went off road from the beginning. The trails are just perfect for all Levels, even the very good bikers find some very technical single trails - I mean Rik finds them and Shows you. The first day was a good scenic tour with swiming in wonderfool black water pools! And the second day was one of the best bike trips I ever had in my life: 50km of single Trail, just out there in the wonderful area of Chapada Diamantina! The day ended up on the highest mountain looking at a nice sunset

            it was soo romantic, good that my wife was with me

 "Olá Fátima e Erik!

Chegamos muito bem e já com saudades planejando nossa volta! Gostaríamos de agradecer a atenção e o cuidado! Adoramos as trilhas e a compainha de vcs! A pedalado foi forte e os cenários maravilhosos, inexplicável, só vivendo pra poder compreender! Foi um dos melhores carnavais que pude desfrutar e com muita alegria.

A Pedalada da Folia, rs! 

Grande Abraço, 

Rodolfo e Ananda"

Jan:"Fantastische herinneringen heb ik aan de 9 daagse fiets- en wandeltocht door de Chapada Diamantina die ik begin dit jaar met mijn broer maakte. We troffen het door Rik en Fatima van diamantinabike.com te leren kennen. Ze zijn ervaren reisleiders die samen met ons de tocht hebben uitgestippeld. Toen er rond oud en nieuw geen hotel meer plek had zijn we samen gaan wildkamperen. Rik wist nog een oude schuilplek van de diamantzoekers op een dag lopen van de bewoonde wereld. Dat was een fantastische ervaring. In de Vale do Paty hebben we na een dag flink doorlopen 's avonds genoten van ontelbare vuurvliegjes. Na een zware maar prachtige fietstocht was er ook plek voor een bezoek aan een orchideeëntuin en er was een dag om oude rotstekeningen ontdekken. Rik en Fatima zijn flexibel, ze luisteren, houden rekening met anderen en zijn behulpzaam. Daarnaast is Rik een uitstekend getrainde fietser waar ik veel van geleerd heb. De omgeving is prachtig. Talloze orchideeën en bromelia's lang de paden. De landschappen zijn divers. Oeroude tafelbergen vormen een grillige horizon in het verder redelijk vlakke land. In diepe dalen stromen riviertjes langs vreemd geslepen rotspartijen. Geologische processen hebben voor vreemde patronen in de rotsen gezorgd."

 Aurélio:"O roteiro de Bike com o Erik e a Fátima superou todas as minhas expectativas. A estrutura de apoio, a flexibilidade de planejar as trilhas e a possibilidade de mesclar entre bike e trekking foi muito bacana e deixou o passeio bem completo. Recomendo a todos que quiserem encarar essa aventura!"

Gabriel:"Trilha perfeita!!! Mesmo com boa parte queimada, foi bom DEMAIS. OTIMAS COMPANHIAS. Valeu demais Diamantina Bike Erik e Fatima!"

"AMAZING ride with Rik! It was stupendous! Rik is knowledgeable about the park but still has a decent amount of awe and curiosity. This is great because you feel at times that you are exploring the park together. I had a fantastic time and felt that I'd accomplished something a little bit fierce! After all at the end of the day I'd navigated the sand, traipsed through small streams and waded across rivers. I'd also swum at the bottom of a waterfall, slid down two natural water slides and careened through Chapada Diamantina! I can't wait to visit Diamantina Bike's again and recommend the company and Rik highly!"

"Ik vind Fatima en Rik als mens en als reisleider een perfecte combinatie. Rik is een zeer goede fietser, kent de omgeving en de wegen op zijn duimpje, heeft veel energie en is zeer behulpzaam. Fatima is vriendelijk, uiterst sensitief en staat altijd open voor suggesties. "

"Conhecemos esse simpático casal holandês no reveillon de 2012. Fizemos 

um pedal inesquecível ao canion da Fumaçinha, com mais de 100km de percurso. O visual não só do canion mas das estradas de terra e trilhas pra lá é incrível, fantástico. O profissionalismo da Diamantina bike é invejável a qualquer empresa de turismo brasileira. De meros clientes, nos tornamos amigos e voltamos a nos encontrar no Brasil Ride 2012. Não vemos a hora de voltar a Chapada pra conhecer mais daquela maravilha baiana com nossos amigos holandeses."

 "Last summer I took a 3 day mountain bike trip with Diamantina Bike. It was an amazing and an adventurous experience. Each day we took a different part of the Chapada Diamantina to see a lot of beautiful places. I can highly recommend a mountainbike trip with Diamantina Bike to all the people who love cycling. I hope that I can come back soon and take a new trip with them!"
