Tika Walde was born in Germany and moved to Argentina when his family emigrated there when he was 3. He has worked for ExperiencePlus! since 2006 leading tours in Argentina and Chile. He is as passionate about cyclocross racing as he is about Argentina and sharing his love for his "home" country with our travelers. Although most of his time is spent either training for the next adventure race or guiding tours, he does find time to explore the world and fulfill his own wanderlust. If you join him on tour, don't be surprised if he decides to run, not ride, beside you while you climb a hill - if requested he's even willing to give you a push. His quiet and humble demeaner hides a world class athlete who often reaches the podium when he competes.
