Are you a Reader, a Rider, or a bit both?
Sometimes the sentiment and reasoning behind our motorcycle trip offerings is best explained by video and voice, instead of in written form for our Readers out there. No matter how you prefer to learn about these options though, one of our top priorities as a service provider is to make sure that you choose the best of our adventure rides to "scratch that riding itch" that so many of us are prone to.
As I explained in this latest video, we fully recognize that: Not all riders want to be in a group. We recognize that many adventure riders prefer to be solo, or just with a friend or two, and that's fine with us. While we love having you as part of our Guided Group Tours, if you prefer to be Self-Guided, we support you!
Packages like our Self-Guided "Fly & RIDE The Best of Northern Patagonia" motorcycle trip are an easy way to experience the Andes Mountains of Chile and Argentina, because:
- You'll RIDE Our Motorcycles! - Avoid the hassles of shipping your own motorcycle for an international motorcycle trip. We have current, professionally maintained dual sport motorcycles already waiting in Chile! (Learn more about the risks of shipping your own motorcycle on this page.)
- Rely on Our Experts - We are experts in traveling through Patagonia by motorcycle, and you can rely on us for the best suggestions and information to get the most out of your riding experience here. This package is set up such that you simply "Fly" and "RIDE" and we've taken care of the rest.
- The Best Route - While your trip can be customized, our Best of Northern Patagonia route exists because we're certain this is the best way to spend 10 days on a Patagonia motorcycle trip. Our own experience, and lots of great Customer Testimonials have helped confirm this since RIDE Adventures was born in 2010.
- Focus on the Fun - Our Fly & RIDE packages keep you from having to spend hours, days, and weeks researching and trying to book your own hotels, dealing with non-responsive agents, and wondering if your plans are really "set." With our Self-Guided "Fly & RIDE The Best of Northern Patagonia" motorcycle trip package, you'll follow the Road Book to your hotel each day, grab your key, and not even have to pay!
As mentioned above, we've been providing motorcycle travel services and adventure bike rentals since 2010, and have seen and worked through the endless number of variables that go into trips in Patagonia and other regions of the Andes Mountains. A rider's success on a trip like this doesn't only require that they be a "great rider," but also that they've been properly prepared for the road ahead, and are supported by professionals who can help with issues that may arise.
Certainly though, it's important that anyone wanting to RIDE in Patagonia has the right riding background and experience for the terrain ahead. For the 2017/18 Patagonia season (which is about October through April) we're seeing that 65% or so of all the routes are now paved. This means riders can still enjoy a great dual sport trip with about half of their riding time being done on dirt & gravel. (Riding the dirt and gravel or "ripio" as we call it, is slower than on pavement of course. So that's how we end up with a 50/50 split of "time spent" in this case.)
Whatever the case, we are here if you have questions about whether or not your riding skills are sufficient for the Self-Guided "Fly & RIDE The Best of Northern Patagonia" motorcycle trip package. Don't wait and think you can get a bike from us last-minute though. Contact us now and get your reservation set, as some dates & bikes can be sold out 6-8 months in advance. Book now!
