What better way to celebrate the starting of a New Year than to travel the world with your bike? Let’s begin the 2019 in Patagonia.
Patagonia … just the name makes us daydreaming. For those who love adventure is THE PLACE for excellence, to visit at least once in their lifetime. By the legendary tales of Italian mountaineers that, in the golden years of climbing, flew out here to try to break mythical peaks like Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy, to the most recent years, when it became the mecca of all bikepackers of the world.
On this bike tour we will discover the southern region of Patagonia, between Chile and Argentina.
We will land in El Calafate, where we will have the chance to enjoy the majesty of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
Then our cycling adventure will begin: we will ride 3 days into the Torres de Paine National Park, we will spend the last night of the year just in front of the Paine, on the beautiful Pehoe Lake.
We will then continue south, to meet the Pacific Ocean in Puerto Natales. From here a fast transfer to Punta Arenas, where after crossing the Strait of Magellan we will start the second half of our adventure: 6 stages through the Isla Grande of the Tierra del Fuego to finally reach the southern city in the world: Ushauia.
We will have a van that will transport all our belongings (camp, food) and could give us support in case of need. Most of the nights we will camp in our tent, except for couple of overnight in little hostels.
