Description

Completing this tour means covering thousands of km on roads and tracks, in all kinds of weather, but through some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. The mythical Ruta 40 and Ruta 7 (Carretera Austral) will lead us to the world-famous Perito Moreno Glacier, National Park Los Alerces, Ventisquero Colgante, Lago las Torres Reserve, Manihuales Reserve, Patagonia National Park, emerald-colored lakes, wild passes, prehistoric arctic forests, and the pampa.

As part of the fantastic motorbike riding you will have a chance to visit and experience the most exceptional places in this part of South America: participate in rafting on the Futaleufu River, take the thermal bath in the volcanic waters, walk in the shadow of the mythic Fitz Roy mountain, have a boat ride on the General Carrera Lake and visit exceptional Catedrales de Marmol, experience from the close distance the Perito Moreno glacier.

Although this expedition requires endurance due to the distances involved (in all weather conditions). The ride in itself is not technical and can be done by riders with limited off-road experience. And one more thing: we know where to find the best steaks, seafood, and wines on the way – to make sure we have the energy to reach our destination!
