With so much to see and experience we have designed this tour so you can spend your time focusing on the riding, scenery and the culture. This is one of the most complete Moto Tours offered in Patagonia. While we offer helmets and gloves to use at no additional charge, we suggest that you bring your own riding gear for this tour.
PUERTO VARAS TO HORNOPIREN
Day one of the tour includes spending the morning prepping the bikes and having a meeting to cover the route and safety. After we are all set we will take a back road around the Reloncaví Estuary to meet up with the Carretera Austral and ride due south to the small coastal town of Hornopirén. This is a great way to ease into the splendor of Patagonia.
HORNOPIREN TO LAGO YELCHO
In Hornopirén we will board a ferry for a five hour trip south along the coast. We will sail through a beautiful fjord bordering the northern section of Parque Pumalín and arrive at the port of Caleta Gonzalo. From there, we will ride through Parque Pumalín, where we will have an opportunity to see 3000 year old, giant Alerce trees. From there we will ride to Lago Yelcho.
LAGO YELCHO TO COYHAIQUE
This day offers diverse and beautiful riding. We will ride to Puyuhuapi and into Parque Nacional Queulat—just south of town—the Queulat Hanging Glacier. The glacier sits atop a rocky cliff with waterfalls flowing down into the lake below. It’s a must-see sight and worth the stop. After this we will continue our ride through a remote and long stretch of the Carretera Austral down to the main city of Coyhaique.
COYHAIQUE TO PUERTO RIO TRANQUILO
From Coyhaique we will ride into the Reserva Nacional Cerro Castillo. This impressive rock formation will be visible off to the west, high in the mountains above the Carretera Austral. After passing Cerro Castillo, we will ride into a remote and long stretch of road to our ultimate destination of the day, the small town of Puerto Río Tranquilo, on the shores of the largest lake in Chile, Lago General Carrera.
PUERTO RIO TRANQUILO (REST DAY)
This area has many attractions, one of which is the Marble Caves. These marble caves have been carved out from thousands of years of waves washing against them. With stunning blue colors reflecting from the water, they are not to be missed. Accessed only by boat, we will take a boat tour out to these natural wonders of the Chilean Patagonia.
PUERTO RIO TRANQUILO TO COCHRANE
Every day is a new adventure on this trip. As we ride towards the end of the world, we will pass the Rio Baker and Parque Patagonia. Parque Patagonia offers views of wild Guanacos and other animals found this far south of the world, while the Rio Baker, flowing from Lago General Carrera into the ocean, shows off its amazing blue colors. Final stop this day will be Cochrane so prepare for our longest day yet.
COCHRANE TO GOBERNADOR GREGORES
Crossing borders always adds an adventurous feel to any ride! This is the day we cross into Argentina and continue south on the famous Ruta 40. We cross on a less used crossing and ride dirt roads all morning to reach the paved Ruta 40. The famous winds of the Argentine Patagonia are a real thing and we will have to tailor out riding to suite the strong force.
GOBERNADOR GREGORES TO EL CHALTEN
Leaving the Estancia we will ride one of the few dirt road sections of Ruta 40. Heading for the famous towers of Mount Fitz Roy in the small town of El Chaltén. Famous for its hiking and rock climbing, this scenic town is a must stop to experience Fitz Roy and the surrounding area.
EL CHALTEN TO EL CALAFATE
The ride from Chaltén to El Calafate is shorter riding day which allows us to explore the area more.
EL CALAFATE (REST DAY)
This is a special rest day as we get to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier National Park and spend the whole day inside the park viewing the Glacier and surrounding area. We will have lunch at the base of the viewing platforms and soak in the surrounding natural area.
EL CALAFATE TO PUNTA ARENAS
Leaving town on Ruta 40 we will reach a dirt road to cross back into Chile. Back in Chile we will ride south through the town of Puerto Natales. This is one of the windiest sections we will ride in Chile. Leaving Puerto Natales we head for Punta Arenas, the capital city of the Magellan Region, and the largest city in the south. We rest here for the night before boarding our ferry and crossing the Straight of Magellan into the Island of Tierra del Fuego. This will be another long day but one with excellent views and over all an interesting ride.
PUNTA ARENAS TO USHUAIA
Boarding a ferry to cross the Straight of Magellan we will be making a big step into the Island of Tierra del Fuego. We will land on the shores of the small town of Porvenir, Chile. Once we make our border crossing into Argentina we ride south and cross the mountains riding a twisty section of road into Ushuaia. Give yourself props because you just made it to the end of the road!
USHUAIA (REST DAY)
After all the riding we have done and all the borders and ferries its time to rest up in Ushuaia take a minute to soak it all in and relax. This port city is not as small as you may think and we will have plenty of time to get some good food and experience life at the end o the world.
USHUAIA TO PUNTA ARENAS
Time to go back into Chile! We will ride back up to Punta Arenas. With a beautiful coastal road, great restaurants and interesting history, Punta Arenas is the biggest and most important city in the Magellan Region of Chile.
PUNTA ARENAS TO TORRES DEL PAINE NATIONAL PARK
