Highlights

  • Pedal along stunning glacial valleys and the giant Domuyo volcano.
  • Called the Roof of Patagonia, the volcano offers incredible views as we bike.
  • We'll relax in hot springs, ride off-road trails and witness beautiful nature.

Description

Pedal along the great glacial valleys of northern Neuquen where the snowmelt rivers flow and wind around high mountains.

Beginning on our bikes we cycle along the Neuquen River, which is fed by numerous streams that trickle through the lower Andes.

We’ll continue towards the amazing Varvarco Ocampo Ponds, which will be the highest point on our trip. From this area we can see the incredible Domuyo Volcano, which stretches to 4,702 meters.

Domuyo is the highest mountain in Patagonia, and sometimes called the Roof of Patagonia. Its slopes contain many hot springs and spurts of geysers.

As we reach the volcano the roads become narrower until they eventually disappear and transform, as we’ll be pedalling on ancient paths.

Across long zigzagged paths rolling up and down, we will pass two great canyons. One of which is Atreuco, surrounded of stunning rock formations.

On each night we’ll experience the enjoyment of the heated fire, flickering upwards toward the star-packed sky.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on a mountain biking trip in the pristine Patagonian wildlife around the stunning Domuyo volcano in Neuquen.

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
