I can’t say I’m an expert on women’s travel as I’m a dude and its silly for me to presume things, but I do have some info for women riders who may want to travel here alone or on one of our tours.
The safety factor is a top priority for solo or group travel. Patagonia is well known to be very safe and friendly. It’s a different way of life down here and one of the best places for solo travel. People are always amazed by the number of women traveling alone by Moto or Bicycle in Patagonia.
Amenities, this is one that gets overlooked sometimes. We do get many couples who ride together and while many guys may be cool with sleeping under a tarp on the ground like Austin Vince, their partners may be less than excited for that style of travel. For our tours we choose the most authentic and clean lodges and hotels we can in the areas we travel. Why is that? Because my wife Paula is the one in charge of the logistics and she finds places that area awesome. She is adventurous but at the same time she doesn’t want to sleep in a crummy place.
Prepare for a sweeping statement here. I see more guys than gals getting caught up about the motorcycle and less about the trip. Here in Patagonia off bike activities and experiences are a-plenty. Getting off the bike and going to see all the awesome places is important and easy to do here.
We here at Moto Patagonia support Women Adventure Riders and are happy to receive couples or solo women riders. Supporting all riders to get out and explore is our goal and we are happy to help!
