Highlights

  • Experience the wild beauty of Patagonia by mountain bike.
  • Visit incredibly dense forest, glacial lakes, and mountain valleys.
  • And witness the wonderful and resilient indigenous Mapuche community.

Description

The unique area surrounding the Patagonian city of San Martin de los Andes makes it the perfect place to experience by mountain bike.

Cross the incredible woods of the Lanin National Park and feel the deep resilience of the indigenous Mapuche community.

We’ll head to the great glacial Lago Escondido (Hidden Lake) that rests close to the border of Argentina and Chile. It is located to the south of Lacar Lake, both of which are surrounded by the Andean mountain range, and sparsely populated.

Crossing the beautiful mountain trails, we’ll bike towards the north of San Martin de los Andes. Our ride leads us on varying paths in Laguna Rosales before continuing towards the base of Cerro Colorado. With its volcanic origin, and its cone, red summit provides stunning backdrops as we ride.

Then we will ride along the Valle del Aguila, which connects the Cerro Chapelco. All the time we will cross the ancient lands of the Mapuche, an indigenous group of south-central Chile and south-western Argentina.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the pristine lands of Patagonia, home to beautiful scenery perfect to explore by mountain bike.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
