Description

Have you ever heard about the “Seven Lakes”? It is one of the most beautiful areas of the Andes, and this is your chance to explore it on a mountain bike, come join me!

The Seven Lakes Road is one of the most attractive destinations of the Argentinean Patagonia. It connects Villa La Angostura, a charming town near Bariloche, with San Martin de Los Andes. Rather than seven, the road crosses eight beautiful lakes and allows us to enjoy two national parks, Lanín and Nahuel Huapi.

On the first day of this tour, we will meet in Bariloche to check the equipment and clear doubts. The next day we’ll get to Arrayanes National Park by catamaran, to start the adventure. What follows are three days of stunning mountain biking crossing all these breathtaking lakes surrounded by lush forests and impressive mountains.

This trip doesn’t require to be an expert mountain biker, but you do need to have a good fitness level. We will cycle a total distance of 135km and you should be prepared to cycle from 38 to 49km per day. For more information, you can check the itinerary below!

So, if you are up for an awesome mountain bike expedition in Patagonia, please contact us. Let’s complete the scenic “Seven Lakes” route on this unforgettable 4-day 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
