Highlights

  • Discover the pristine Patagonian nature during this mountain biking tour.
  • Tour the Seven Lakes that accompany us along the scenic trail.
  • We'll pass shorelines, dense forest, wooded roads and glacial lakes.

Description

Experience the lakes of ancient glaciers that once existed in the north of Patagonia. By mountain biking along our circuit trail, we’ll visit secretive valleys and slopes that hold beautiful scenery.

We will begin our adventure in Villa La Angostura, a beautiful town along the shore of the Nahuel Huapi Lake in the Argentinian province of Neuquén.

The town, surrounded by lakes, forests and mountains, is considered one of the most beautiful areas in the whole of Patagonia. This gives rise to its nickname of the Garden of Patagonia.

Following the unpaved, wooded roads towards Villa Traful, a hamlet in the province of Neuquén that lies within the Nahuel Huapi National Park.

The curvy dirt road that winds and rolls up and downhill follows the shoreline of the Traful and Limay rivers. We’ll follow the Paso del Cordoba, which offers incredible views of various colourful rock formations.

Sleep under the stars at the Filo Hua Hum camping site with only the sound of the crackling of the bonfire.

We’ll continue onwards following the shoreline of the Meliquina Lake, which is surrounded by the Patagonian forest, stuffed with lengas and coihues.

Then we will complete our 4-day mountain biking tour through the shadowy forest that takes us to the city of San Martin de los Andes, which lies at the foot of the mountain chain.

The level of difficulty for this tour is intermediate, which means those who can participate must be aged 18 years old and over.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on this 4-day mountain biking adventure, and experience the wonders of the Patagonia region, particularly the magnificent lakes that follow us along the trail.
