The mythical High Andes of Argentina and Chile over the remote Vergara Mountain Pass

This fantastic journey will take you over and through the Andes Range, over a little-used mountain pass (the Vergara Pass, at 2460 meters above sea level – 8070 feet). You will share the road with the desert wind, condors soaring high above, and your fellow cyclists. The tour begins in Malargue, a small city in the province of Mendoza, Argentina, bordering with the Northern edge of Patagonia. After 6 days of exhilarating cycling, we´ll arrive in Curico, Chile. The challenging climbing is rewarded by long downhill rides once we enter Chile. We will camp under incredibly huge skies, envolved in a magical setting of jagged peaks, snow-capped mountains and desolate desert landscapes.

Our experienced team of tour leaders, support staff and cooks work as an efficient team, always a step ahead of our guests´ needs. You will always have a team member nearby; if you prefer cycling alone, whether it be cycling strong at the front, or at your own relaxed pace in the rear, you will have this freedom.

Our team members will greet you around the next curve with an encouraging word and a friendly smile, supporting you every step of the way.

We have been successfully running this tour for years, so you can be assured that every detail has been thought of, letting you concentrate on fully enjoying your journey across the Andes, and to deeply experience our country and culture. Live this once-in-a-lifetime experience with us!
