A journey through one of the most magnificent landscapes in the world

This spectacular area, featuring both strong European influences and indigenous cultures, spans 300km from north to south and overlaps the dramatic Andean Mountain range between Chile and Argentina.

The ever-changing scenery has been shaped by millions of years of volcanic activity. Smouldering peaks dominate the skyline alongside snow-capped mountains and towering granite summits along our cycling route.  The lower slopes of the Andes are blanketed with ancient rainforest and lush vegetation. Deep valleys are filled with icy fjords, emerald lakes and tumbling waterfalls in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. What better vantage point could there be than the saddle of a bicycle?

From Frutillar we cycle along the shores of the Llanquihue Lake with views of Orsorno, Puntiagudo, Tronador and Calbuco Volcanoes. Crossing the border into Argentina, our holiday continues as we mountain bike on to Bariloche, the adventure capital of the Patagonian Lake District, for a rest day with the option of tackling the famous circular cycle route. From here we embark on the stunning Seven Lakes Route (one of the most scenic in Argentina) to San Martin de los Andes with its breath-taking lakeside setting.  Crossing back into Chile riding along the Huahum path, we cycle through the Villarrica national park to Pucón, the main adventure tourism hub of the Chilean Lake District, with Volcán Villarrica as a simmering backdrop. Our holiday ends at Parque Conguillio.  Chile’s first geo park is home to underground lakes, deep water lagoons and South America’s most active volcano: Llaima. Encompassing some of the most awe-inspiring panoramas in South America, redspokes Chile Argentina cycling holiday offers an array of contrasts and will leave you with lasting memories.
