An unforgettable adventure tour!

Don't miss this unforgettable adventure ride across the southernmost parts of South America. Experience the magic world of Patagonia with its gaucho culture, dramatic Andes with snow-covered volcanoes, bizarre rock formations, beautiful emerald green lakes, waterfalls and still growing glaciers. Enjoy this breathtaking scenery!

Explore impressive landscapes in Argentina and Chile!

This one-way tour starts in Osorno (about 300mi south of Santiago de Chile) and takes you on paved and gravel roads across mountains and plains to Argentina's Atlantic coast. A ferry takes you across the Straits of Magellan to Tierra del Fuego where you will ride to the southernmost city of Ushuaia, which you will enjoy during a rest day. Experience Chile’s and Argentina’s most impressive landscape, the very sparsely populated Patagonia, the unique formations of Torres del Paine Mountains, discover the Milodon cave and visit the Perito Moreno glacier. You also will have the opportunity to view penguins during this tour (additional cost). You will stay in comfortable accommodations, including some hosterias and beautiful estancias (ranches). Traditional dishes, like barbeque beef or lamb are waiting for you. Patagonia is also very famous for delicious desserts. Just enjoy!

This tour is a real “once in a life time” must!

Bring your partner or teenage kid, the ride is suitable for average riders with gravel road experience. You don't have to worry about your luggage. It will be transported by a support vehicle and will wait for you in the hotel every evening. At the beginning of the tour you will receive a water- and dust resistant 60l bag where you can put your luggage in. The reason for this is to secure your original luggage from damage. This will be transported to the end hotel in Punta Arenas.

Sometimes the tour runs from south to north – we will inform you in advance if that is the case.
