Che - Bariloche to Santiago

29 Days 2468 Km

Che’s recycled ‘Bicycle Diaries, 2018’ is Bike Odyssey's most expansive, dramatic and physically engaging expedition yet. From Patagonia’s purest pleasures, to Isla Negra’s haunting Nerudaian poetry, Che tour will envelope you in a unique and spiritual mystery, found only in the unspoilt, enchanted hinterlands of South America. Join us for the launch of this epic adventure love child, as we soar into the dizzy heights of ‘Los Andes’ and their untamed beauty, as we explore Che Guevara’s dusty trails set some sixty years before our tentative and excited scouting.

‘The Man’ himself was lured to this volcanic wonderland by our own thematic inspirations of adventure, cultural discovery and gastronomic hedonism. Our love of cycling narcissism has added an extreme physical element in the form of a tri transversal crossing of this immense tectonic range to add spice to an already broiling cauldron of sensory succulence. While our cycling will be tempered by the need to explore the pristine surrounds, in the first week we will ascend (and descend) the height of Mt Everest and in the the second, we will conquer in vertical meters, the highest peak of the Andes, Mt Aconcagua (which towers above our final destination).

Our crossings will be buttressed between the volcanoes, lakes and thermal springs that abound this magical place. After which, we will kiss goodbye to the Cordilleran peaks, as we meander between the spectacular, rocky coast line and the delectable delights of the country’s finest wine regions. After four challenging and spiritually uplifting weeks, we will enter the city of Santiago, which sprawls below the highest peak outside the Himalayas; a fitting salute to the thirty thousand vertical meters climbed, during an odyssey that defies adjectival parameters!

Come and join Max, your tour leader and creator of this epic adventure on its inaugural tour in 2018.
