On this 9 day trip to Northern Patagonia Argentina, expect to ride everything from backcountry roads, to rough ATV trails, to technical, steep, rocky and loose singletrack.
The word Patagonia conjures up images of brave adventurers and remote landscapes in a hidden corner of the world. For centuries the world's bravest have tested themselves in these lands - often with disastrous results.
These days, Patagonia still offers up plenty of adventure, but without the heaping servings of hardship. On this trip, in Argentinian Patagonia, you too can play Magellan and unleash your inner explorer, but with a nice side dish of comfort at our spectacular backcountry ecolodge.
Had those early explorers had their own wood-fired hot tub overlooking the Andes, they may have stayed a while longer. And if they'd known about the network of beautiful rides surrounding our lodge, well they just may have given up the exploring life all together and settled down in this little corner of paradise.
To ramp up the adventure factor just a little more (and take advantage of the world-class whitewater rivers nearby), we're throwing in some whitewater rafting, canyoning, and an overnight excursion to a beautiful riverside cabin.
