Overview of Tours

Duration:  Patagonia tours are typically 9-18 days, depending on whether you'll enjoy some non-riding activities like world class rafting on the Futaleufu River, fly-fishing on the River Baker, or any of the other great outdoor sporting activities that make Patagonia so special.  Also, including a finish in Ushuaia at that "End of the World" typically adds 2-4 days to your trip.

Patagonia Motorcycle Adventure

Dates: From mid-September in the north through April (South American summertime, don't forget the seasons are opposite the northern hemisphere!)

Motorcycle options: 

Kawasaki KLR 650, BMW G650GS, F700GS, F800GS, R1200GS, and R1200GS Adventure

Weather: Be prepared for anything, as Patagonia is ever-changing. In the same day, you could experience freezing temperatures, sunshine and warmth, and of course rain, depending on what area of Patagonia you're in. If your trip goes all the way to Ushuaia, you can end up seeing snow even in the middle of South American summer as it's only 700 miles from Antarctica!

Tour Formats:  Self-Guided "Ride & Fly" tours, or motorcycle-guided with 4x4 support vehicle to carry luggage

Typical Itineraries:

Patagonia: The mysterious territory with wide open spaces, enchanting rainforests, bright blue glacier-fed lakes, charging whitewater rivers, archipelagos, and the Andes Mountains, shared by both Argentina and Chile.

Tours of Patagonia will typically involve flying into Santiago, Chile (SCL) and possibly another regional flight within Chile to your tour departure point.

After airport transfers to the starting hotel and a welcome dinner, get ready for what we consider to be some of the most precious, raw nature and incredible scenery in the world! Crossing the Andes mountains and Argentine border multiple times on your journey, you'll start to see the rugged beauty of such open spaces right away.  The combination of open plains or "pampas" regions with intimate rainforest canopy is only complimented further by having such a wide range of weather possibilities.  Packed properly for the adventure, riders often endure the tough winds and climate the Patagonia offers and find exhileration in doing so. Something about putting ourselves in such contact with nature keeps riders coming back again and again...

Llao Llao Patagonia Motorcycle Trip

Seeping into Patagonia’s endless display of bright blue lakes and rivers, year-round snow-capped mountains, awe-inspiring glaciers, and bright green rainforests, it might seem like a motorcycle rider's paradise.  Sites like Torres del Paine, The Perito Moreno Glacier, The Carretera Austral, and Mount Fitz Roy are all typically included in the routes we ride through, and if your goal is to reach Ushuaia at what is referred to as “The End of the World,” that can be the ultimate moment in your Patagonia adventure!
