Trip Information

Based on the success of our mountain bike holidays in this region, and in response to popular demand, we introduced a fantastic road cycling holiday in Chile and Argentina. This trip will take you through landscapes of snowcapped volcanoes, deep valleys, shimmering lakes and curious forests of monkey puzzle trees set against the awesome backdrop of the Andes.
Our North to South route begins in Temuco from where we head into the Andes, an interesting region featuring many great hot springs. Climbing over the mountain range we head on through the impressive Las Raices tunnel and on into Argentina.
Turning south through the valleys of Argentina we enjoy quiet roads and cozy accommodation before joining the famous Ruta 40. We take the opportunity for a relaxing rest day in San Martin de los Andes before continuing south on the Ruta de las Siete Lagos. Our last stop in Argentina is the village of Villa La Angostura.
Climbing over the Andes one last time and re-entering Chile, we thread our way past the now quiet volcano and on to the hot springs town of Puyehue. Skirting around the shores of Lago Llanquihue on a special bike lane we stop in Ensenada before a side trip to visit the crashing rapids and waterfalls of Saltos de Petrohue. Our last stop is in Puerto Varas, a great spot to relax and sample the interesting combination of German and Chilean cuisine.
This holiday is the perfect choice for those cyclists looking for a spectacular destination which is accessible to the everyday riders amongst us.
