We wrapped up last season with some genuinely great rides. Good groups and fun riders from all over the world enjoyed not only what Chile has to offer in the form of Adventure Travel but what Moto Patagonia has to offer. With our unique style and commitment to small groups and fun routes, we were able to share amazing places with what I now consider new friends. That is the idea, to share and bond with different people from different cultures and explore using our motorcycles.
I can’t ignore the obvious of what is happening globally with Covid-19. Tourism is one of the industries most impacted by the abrupt stop of the global economy. Our industry of motorcycle tourism was already small and now it’s nearly microscopic. We have become more inventive and flexible with our bookings; however, with so much uncertainty we, nor anyone, can guarantee anything.
Patagonia is still here; it is still amazing, and I can say without reservation that you should still come ride with us. Once we get on the other side of this health crisis and the borders open, I know these routes will be better than ever. The people along them will be happy to see new riders and the industry as a whole is working together to create fantastic memories for those willing to travel again and go explore. Here in Patagonia we all work together: the fly fishing guides, rafting guides, the motorcycle guides…we all work with the local lodges, restaurants and ferry systems.
Our different activities blend and rely on each other to create our own little micro economy. Patagonia may be big, but the population of full timers living down here is small and we all count on travelers, not only to make a living but also to get out and explore ourselves. It is the greatest self-motivation there is, to share and show you what this place is all about. We started Moto Patagonia because of our own passion for travel and motorcycles. The whole business was designed around one thing, YOU!
Think about that for a second. Every small business offering unique tourism opportunities was built to share their passion with you. This makes you--motorcycle riders, fishermen, kayakers, mountain bikers--some of the most special people on earth! You are the explorers, the risk takers of the world, so don’t forget that Adventure IS for the Risk Takers of the World.
We hope to see you next season riding a moto here with us.
