Itinerary

The Lake District
Leaving the metropolis of Santiago, the riders will spin into the Colchagua valley wine growing region, alongside the Rio Mantequito, and then down Chile's rugged Pacific Coast, no doubt stopping to sample the fine wine and delicious seafood. After a rest day in Concepcion they'll head back inland over rolling hills bound for the spectacular Lake District – an area featuring dozens of lakes, snow capped volcanoes, rushing rivers and tranquil forests. Time off in Villarica will afford the opportunity to shop for local handicrafts, visit the tourist destination of Pucon or even mountain bike down foreboding Volcan Villarica. Then its past more of Los Lagos and on to the harbor city of Puerto Montt, which marks the end of this section, and the gateway to fabled Patagonia.
