Overview

Highlights

  • Discover Argentina’s captivating capital, Buenos Aires
  • Ride through the beautiful landscapes of Lanín National Park
  • Experience the rich cultures of Argentina and Chile
  • Drive through the Valdivian rainforest
  • Mountain lodges, camps and breath-taking vistas

Short Description

The wild landscapes of Patagonia encompass the southern tip of Argentina and Chile. One of the world’s most stunning natural settings, these beautiful vistas provide the backdrop for this spectacular ride through the Andean landscapes.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Day 1: Arrive Buenos Aires

Argentina’s vibrant capital provides a fitting start to this spectacular Andes adventure; this afternoon we will take a tour of the city.

Day 3: Riding in the Chapelco Valley

Today we will have our fist full day's ride from Lake Lolog.

Breaking camp for the last time this morning, we’ll ride back to our base in San Martin today and enjoy a final dinner with our Argentinean hosts before heading across into Chile tomorrow.

Day 8: Cross into Chile and drive through the Valdivian rainforest

We’ll drive across the border into neighbouring Chile, enjoying the dramatic change in scenery as we head into the Valdivian temperate rainforest. Arriving into Pucón we'll take a short ride on Chileno horses this afternoon.

Today we’ll enjoy an altogether different ride, as we explore a landscape of steep mountains and lush forest, dotted with small farms.

Love Wild Frontiers because of choice of trips and guides. Remember particularly Dhala Campbell in Palestine as typifying the brand, slightly whacky (sorry, Dhala) but tremendously efficient and fun. Really interesting people are attracted to the unusual trips which adds to the enjoyment.
