  • 20 Nov 2021 - 25 Nov 2021
  • 18 Nov 2022 - 24 Nov 2022
One of the most beautiful places in Argentina. The trip collects samples from the extraordinary diversity of landscapes, climates, environments and beauty that distinguish Patagonia. This is the section of Patagonia with the greatest touristic infrastructure development but, as we know it very well, we can reach the secrets that it still hides.

From the Araucarias-lined slopes of the volcanoes in Neuquén, to The Alerces National Park, which hosts and preserves 2,600 years old larch (Alerce-Lahuan) specimens, we will ride along the mythical Route 40, also in the parts that still have some gravel. We´ll visit the dry and windy steppe on the banks of the magnificent Aluminé river with its mantle of Neneos (Mulinum spinosum) and Coirones (Festuca gracillima).  The hidden mountain lakes, the extraordinary micro climate of the 'Comarca Andina del Paralelo 42°', the still working narrow gauge railway, known worldwide as 'La Trochita', the old log cabin which belonged to the infamous bandits Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, in Cholila. Batea Mahuida Volcano's crater and the classic 7 Lakes Route, Encantado Valley, Córdoba Pass, Epuyén, the Welsh settlement Trevelin and Esquel and the splendor of some of the most beautiful rivers in the country.

Patagonia has developed an exquisite and peculiar gastronomy. Hallmarks of the local cuisine, are lamb and rainbow, brown or brook trout; and the also exotic species of red deer and wild boar, which can be found in the best gourmet dishes, in the typical 'asados' (our barbecue) or as stuff for pasta and lasagna from the Italian heritage. This region also produces white wines, from cold terroirs. Excellent malt whiskeys and beers from local barley and hops. Different meals with berries and mushrooms from the forests, the best chocolates from Bariloche and the traditional Welsh tea, served with the black welsh cake, fruit pies, homemade breads and blueberry marmalade. This tour, both on and off bike consist of cherry picking from the best experiences available in Patagonia!

The routes and tracks are challenging and fun. The landscapes have a startling scenic beauty and the weather sets a blue sky, always stained with clouds in constant motion, will be outstanding protagonists. The balance of adventure and leisure is just perfect.
