Andes Cross Mountain Bike Tour
cross the Andes from Argentina to Chile through the land of volcanoes

This journey takes you through the fascinating contrast between the magical Patagonian Steppe in Argentina, the mountains and lakes of the Andean Forests, to the volcanoes and rainforests beyond the Andes Range in Chile. We have chosen the most spectacular backroads and trails for cross-country mountain biking, always looking for little-known routes, far from the traditional tourist trail, with great variety in landscapes and terrains.

You will cross the Andes Range on your bike, as we ride over a backroad deep within the Lanin Volcano National Park, over the shores of the impressive Lake Lacar. The crossing includes an enchanting boat ride over the remote and isolated Pirihueico Lake in Chile – its turquoise and emerald waters deep inside magical forests will create lasting memories!

We will also experience the best of the Chilean volcanoes, including an adrenaline-packed descent from the Villarica Volcano, as well as a trip to the glaciers under the Quetrupillan Volcano, crossing native forests of monkey-puzzle tree and southern beech.

We have thought through every detail, and designed a tour that will let you deeply experience our amazing region, becoming not only a great vacation, but maybe the journey of a lifetime.



The Highlights (why choose this tour):

  • Let the incredible landscapes of the Patagonian Steppe amaze you, riding over the beautiful Limay River on your mountain bike, until reaching the magical Enchanted Valley, and crossing over the Cordoba Pass, in the transition zone between the Patagonian desert and the Andean forests. There is no better way to experience the remote Patagonia.

  • Feel the experience of crossing the Andes Mountains: the Hua-Hum Pass, leaving from San Martin, offers the ideal setting for mountain biking, through beautiful landscapes. The day's journey ends with a boat ride over the spectacular Pirihueico Lake, in the heart of the Chilean Andes.

  • Relax at the Coñaripe Thermal Baths – set deep in the Chilean Valdivian Rainforest, Coñaripe is famous for the properties of its waters, as well as its cozy baths and spa.

  • Cross the Transvolcanic Trail. Going up above the pass between the Villarica and Quetrupillan volcanoes, we´ll actually get to touch a glacier under the cone of the Villarica, where few tourists go. Fabulous views and an unforgettable descent, in the heart of the Andes volcano chain.

  • From the famous city of Pucon, adventure capital of Southern Chile, you will conquer Villarica Volcano, with an awesome descent over beds of lava and thick forests; and have loads of fun while river rafting or trekking, with the awesome Villarica in the background.
