Our Mountain Bike trip will take you to the most impressive scenery in southern Argentina. Amazing climbs and descents along gravel roads that go from the steppe to lakes, mountain rivers, and the magic of the Patagonian forest immersed between snow-capped peaks, with views of Lanin Volcano and Chapelco mountain.
Always accompanied by a support vehicle, professional Mountain Bike guides, assistants, and a company specialized in adventure travel and sports tourism in Argentina.
Breakfasts and dinners in Cabins, Hotel or camping (our menus are adapted to all types of food)
We pedal an average of 50 km per day, approximately from 10 am to 5 pm. We will stop for hydration, to take pictures, for lunch and to visit every interesting place that we will see.
We ride without saddlebags. If possible, without a backpack. Your personal belongings will travel in the support vehicle.
For the geography of the terrain, we do not recommend it. The bicycle we recommend for the trip is a Mountain Bike, minimum 21 gears, with front cushioning, with good quality and in good condition.
We do not recommend it, we request to bring your own bicycle, the same that you use at home.
It is important for us to know that you have previous training and that you cycle frequently at home. It is also important for this trip to feel comfortable and to know your bike. In case of contacting us, please tell us your experience and training. If you do not have a MTB or it is diffcult for you to bring it on the trip for travel reasons, we can evaluate the rent of a bicycle.
The entire journey is accompanied by a support vehicle. In case of getting tired or injured, we can carry your bike and you can continue the journey in the vehicle.
Our support vehicle is equipped with tools and materials to fix your bike. In case it cannot be repaired, we carry a spare bicycle to replace your damaged one.

The secret is to dress in layers, to obtain maximum comfort and the best performance at minimum weight. It is important to use windproof and dry-fit clothes, this is why we do not recommend using cotton clothes. If you think are thinking of buying new shoes, make sure to wear them before the trip. The weather may vary, although we check the forecast, weather is unpredictable. Nights are cold. Although the sun shines, always wear a coat and a waterproof jacket. Always try to wear UV glasses and use sunscreen even if it is cloudy. If possible, avoid exposure to solar radiation at any time. All these precautions contribute to your health and well-being.
