Program

Day 1: Osorno

The participants are met at Osorno Airport (ZOS), and taken by the Motoaventura Chile team to the hotel. After check-in follows the bike collection, signing of contracts, group briefing, organization of baggage, and the welcome dinner offered. You leave on your journey the following day. Please note that at the airport, there's one flight per day. In case where all seats are sold out, other airports (and bus transfer) are available.

Day 2: Osorno - Bariloche

Hairpin bends through the Chilean landscape form the setting for the first hours of the journey while passing the frontier will take you up to lunchtime. Climbing the range of the Andes, you will be able to admire the ashes of the volcano Puyehue and the panorama of Lake Nahuel Huapi, beside which you shall stop for the night. An evening in the streets of one of the liveliest cities of the region awaits you.

Day 3: Bariloche - Trevelin

You will leave beautiful Lake Nahuel Huapi only after having explored the inlets to the mirador Llao Llao, a panoramic viewpoint where you will have coffee. You then descend the bends of the Andes to El Bolson and venture into Los Alercos National Park, characterized by 80 km of unpaved roads and tracks that wind around iridescent lakes.

Day 4: Trevelin - Puyuhuapi

The Carretera Austral is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful routes in the world to cross on a motorbike, and on this day the group will explore part of it. After passing the border which takes you back into Chile, you shall be captivated by the beauty of the rivers, waterfalls and lakes that you catch sight of between one bend and the next. You will find many panoramic viewpoints right up until you reach the fiord, where you can enjoy salmon and fresh cod for dinner.

Day 5: Puyuhuapi - Coyhaique

The unpaved road will lead you along the banks of the fiord and round the hairpin bends of the rain-washed mountains of Chilean Patagonia. From the summit, wyou shall admire waterfalls and glaciers before descending to rejoin the asphalted road. You will ride through grassland, surrounded by rocky peaks and the sight of multi-colored expanses of flowers, to your destination, where the group will enjoy a great dinner with the view on the valley.

Day 6: Coyhaique - Antiguo

In view of the mileage expected today, you will leave the hotel in the early morning, enjoying the stretch of quick asphalted road and the unpaved kilometers of the Carretera Austral. You arrive at the magnificent General Carrera Lake and will be enraptured by the majesty of this area. You will ride alongside this vast sheet of water until you reach the border with Argentina, where iconic Ruta40 starts again.

Day 7: Antiguo - Gregores

Ruta40, groups of guanacos, and strong gusting winds are the actors in this phase of the journey. You will maintain a good speed for the whole day, but get a taste of the unpaved road for the last 30 km. In view of the challenging ride expected on the following day, it offers the group a dinner of spit-roasted lamb accompanied by local wine and served in an authentic Tehuelche estancia.

Day 8: Gregores - Calafate

The gravel road and the wind will be tough for half of the day, but you will be compensated with the views of the Viedma and Argentino Lakes. After you have returned to the paved road, you will have lunch in the historic estancia that gave refuge to Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and Ethel Place when in flight after a robbery. The excellent road surface will take you as far as El Calafate, a tourist center famous for its nightlife movida, where you shall stay for two nights.

Day 9: Ghiacciaio Perito Moreno

Today the group will be picked up and transferred to Los Glaciares National Park to pass a most welcome day of rest at the foot of the majestic Perito Moreno Glacier. The crash of yet another block of thousand-year-old ice smashing onto the sheet of water, and echoing afar, makes this a unique experience of its kind, an unforgettable moment. On your return, the group will be free to organize their own evening.

Day 10: Calafate - Torres del Paine

Ruta40 leaves from El Calafate, alternating between paved and unpaved, but without sparing you the wind, which in this region blows with gusts that can reach 130 kilometers per hour. However, once you have returned to Chilean soil the wind drops to another level while in front of our visors appears the eighth wonder of the world: the Torres del Paine National Park. You ride around the unpaved circuit and stop for the night with the added benefit of an exceptional view of the towering peaks.

Day 11: Torres del Paine - C. Sombrero

The mountainous ridge of the Andes gives way to the Argentinian steppes and the salty tang of the sea grows stronger hour by hour. Once you arrive at the Magellan Straits, you shall lunch inside the wreck of the steamship Amadeo and get ready for landing on Tierra del Fuego, where you shall celebrate yet another conquest on this journey.

Day 12: Sombrero - Ushuaia

You shall cross the heart of Tierra del Fuego in front of the Atlantic Ocean. A series of lakes and mountain hairpin bends will blaze your trail to the southernmost city in the world reachable by land: Ushuaia. As the culmination of your feat, you shall win through to the signpost Fin del Mundo (World’s End) in the Lapataia National Park. You shall celebrate the finishing line in style with a dinner based on extraordinarily fresh king crab.

Day 13: Ushuaia - Río Grande

After breakfast, the group will be free to visit Ushuaia and its surroundings until after lunchtime. The journey will now continue northwards, to enable you to meet the ferry that will carry you to Punta Arenas the following day. You will enjoy your final Argentinian wine in front of the Atlantic Ocean, which witnessed the Falklands Islands (Islas Malvinas) War.

Day 14: Río Grande - Punta Arenas

Back in Chile, you will ride along the Magellan Straits on the last unpaved stretch of road on your journey. You will need to reach Porvenir by 1.00 p.m. to embark on the ferry that lands at Punta Arenas after 5.00 p.m. In the event of the ferry not running (because of strong winds or unscheduled maintenance) the group will arrive at their destination by land (*+200 km). Once you have arrived at Punta Arenas the members of the group will return their motorbikes and get ready for the farewell dinner offered.

Day 15: Punta Arenas

The members of the group will be transferred to Punta Arenas airport (PUQ) for a connection to Santiago (Chile), from where they will board their homeward flights.
