Set off from San Carlos de Bariloche in Patagonia, Argentina to cross the Andes into Chile on a historic trade route that uses a low pass through the dramatic mountain range. Travelling by bike and boat, this incredible journey has shortish distances and just one or two very manageable climbs to take in the stunning landscape – beautiful emerald lakes, four thousand year old forests, snow-capped volcanoes and startling panoramas. Designed to give you time to absorb the peace and beauty of the landscape, enjoy beautiful hotels and scenery, with days off to walk and boat, ‘The crossing of the Andes’ is a gentle but vivid and dramatic way to explore Argentina and Chile.
