Would you like to explore a scenic area of the Patagonia? Then come to El Chaltén for a self-guided mountain bike tour to Lago del Desierto!

El Chaltén is a scenic village in Santa Cruz, in southern Argentina. Surrounded by impressive snow capped peaks and deep-blue coloured lakes, this area is a perfect destination for outdoor adventures.

On this mountain bike day-outing, you will discover Lago del Desierto, one of the last virgin areas in the Patagonian Andes with beautiful glacial lakes and lush forests. Keep in mind that this is not a guided trip. We will just give you the professional equipment and take you to the starting point. You take it from there!

On the way, you will find plenty of opportunities to stop and admire the surroundings. You will see waterfalls, lakes, glaciers and the huge shape of Fitz Roy´s north Face emerging from the nothofagus woods. Additionally, if you want, you can stop on several hiking trails and visit stunning spots such as the Huemul Glacier, or practice kayaking and fishing.

Lago del Desierto is located 36km from El Chaltén. For the return, we offer the option to finish the ride at Hosteria El Pilar (20km from Lago del Desierto), where we will pick you up in the afternoon.

So, if you are up for this amazing mountain bike trip in El Chaltén, please contact us. Explore a unique area of Patagonia and reach the breathtaking Lago del Desierto!
