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.

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
