Who said you can’t cycle in dunes? Fat Bikes provide an opportunity to explore the vast sea of dunes in our backyard of Swakopmund without the need for motorized vehicles or having to walk far. This is even more exciting as it has little impact on this fragile and natural habitat. Not only do the balloon-like tyres allow for almost effortless floating over pebbles and sand but because of a wider contact area, the rider’s weight is more spread and a fat bike’s tacks far shallower than even footprints – making it the most ecological way to explore the delicate desert.
Various tours are offered, either riding up along the top of Namibia’s famous dunes, or riding down memory lane while explorings Swakopmund’s rich heritage, or cruising below the high-tide mark on the beach at low-tide.
