REDISCOVER PATAGONIA

REDISCOVER PATAGONIA

The best of the end of the world. And beyond

Argentina – Chile – High, Middle and South Patagonia.

  • 26 Nov 2021 - 10 Dec 2021
Patagonia is a mythical region. One of the top 10 international destinations for every adventure rider. With the Andes Mountain Range as its axis and more than a million km2 to ride through different types of climates and all levels of terrain difficulty you can imagine.

From San Martin de los Andes to Ushuaia. We will cross the border to Chile several times  to get the Austral Highway and the Pacific Ocean fjords, so to admire the monumental beauty of Torres del Paine. On the Argentinian side, we will enjoy the fresh and humid aromas of the Andean-Patagonian forests and feel the rigorous dry and strong wind of the steppe. Route 40 will serve as a reference for almost the entire route, but we will not miss the opportunity to ride our motorcycles on some backcountry roads or even small trails that will connect us with places full of history and culture. We´ll spend a full day riding on  private roads within several sheep breeding farms. Away from the burden of traffic and very close to amazement and unique fun.

Big lakes, the most beautiful rivers, the Perito Moreno Glacier and Cerro Chaltén (Mount Fitz Roy) becomes the background for our pictures and the landscapes for our memories of the lifetime tour.

Patagonia has developed an exquisite and peculiar gastronomy with differences between Argentinian provinces and also Chile. Hallmarks of the local cuisine, are lamb and seafood such as spider crab, trout or shellfish; but also the exotic species red deer, wild boar and beaver, 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.

Patagonia produces white wines, from cold terroirs. Excellent malt whiskeys and beers from local barley and hops. Different meals with berries and mushrooms from the Andean-Patagonian 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 is a comprehensive experience, both on and off bike.

This is an essential trip for a global adventure rider. 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.
