Yamaha 250 XTZ Tenere.
Motorcycle rental is included in the tour price.
This is a motorbike expedition of superlatives, and of a lifetime… Patagonia is known for its unique landscapes, vast forests, national parks, and glaciers. Completing this tour means covering thousands of km on roads and tracks, in all kinds of weather, but through some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. The mythical Ruta 40 and Ruta 7 will lead us to Torres Del Paine, the world-famous Perito Moreno Glacier, emerald-colored lakes, wild passes, the rugged peaks of Torres Del Paine, and prehistoric arctic forests. Patagonia is also famous for giant sloths: the mylodon! We will also look for it… We’ll have to face the mind-blowing winds of the pampa.
This tour will take us through some of the most scenic spots any rider should absolutely see: the Perito Moreno glacier, Torres del Paine, the Pampa, the arctic rainforest around the carretera Austral, etc.
Although this expedition requires endurance due to the distances involved (in all weather conditions). The ride in itself is not technical and can be done by riders with limited off-road experience. And one more thing: we know where to find the best steaks, seafood and wines on the way – to make sure we have the energy to reach our destination!

We will visit Patagonia in spring. You have to be aware that Patagonia is famous for its capricious weather, changing many times per day and extremely strong winds (on the Argentinian side mainly). You have to be prepared for all types of weather conditions.
Wearing adequate riding gear is an individual responsibility. We strongly recommend “adventure” or hard-shell type boots for this ride. Bring your own gear.
We will be riding light. Try not to take more than one 20kg luggage piece. It should be dust & water proof. For riding days take with you a small backpack or waterproof bag, with straps, to enable you to attach it to your motorbike.
Argentina has been struggling with an economic crisis for years. Credit cards outside of big cities often don’t work. When exchanging USD to pesos, there are two rates: the less favorable official rate. The so-called blue rate (unofficial). Carry some cash with you, preferably in USD.
We will travel far from civilization. We’ll not always have telephone coverage. There may not be internet either.
