Chile & Argentina
Patagonia & the Lake District

Tour Overview

The redspokes tour of the Patagonian Lake District is a cycling adventure through one of the most magnificent landscapes in the world.  This spectacular area, featuring both strong European influences and indigenous cultures, spans 300km from north to south and overlaps the dramatic Andean Mountain range between Chile and Argentina.

The ever-changing scenery has been shaped by millions of years of volcanic activity. Smouldering peaks dominate the skyline alongside snow-capped mountains and towering granite summits.  The lower slopes of the Andes are blanketed with ancient rainforest and lush vegetation. Deep valleys are filled with icy fjords, emerald lakes and tumbling waterfalls in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. What better vantage point  could there be than the saddle of a bicycle?

From Frutillar we follow the shores of the Llanquihue Lake with views of Orsorno, Puntiagudo, Tronador and Calbuco Volcanoes. Crossing the border, we journey on to Bariloche, the adventure capital of the Argentinean Lake District, for a rest day with the option of tackling the famous circular cycle route. From here we embark on the stunning Seven Lakes Route (one of the most scenic in Argentina) to San Martin de los Andes with its breathtaking lakeside setting.   Heading on we cycling through the Villarrica national park to Pucón, the main adventure tourism hub of the Chilean Lake District, with Volcán Villarrica as a simmering backdrop. Our tour ends at Parque Conguillio.  Chile’s first geo park is home to underground lakes, deep water lagoons and South America’s most active volcano: Llaima. Encompassing some of the most awe-inspiring panoramas in South America, this cycle ride of contrasts will leave you with lasting memories.
