Travel itinerary

The Patagonia: The Extreme South Motorcycle Tour starts leaving the southernmost city of the world Ushuaia by crossing the Garibaldi pass with views over the beautiful Hidden Lake and Lake Fagnano. Then after a usually windy ride over the island of Tierra del Fuego we cross into Chile get to the Ferry over the Strait of Magellan ride back into Argentinean mainland, pass the city of Rio Gallegos and finally get to El Calafate where we visit of the famous Glacier Perito Moreno.

Back along Lake Viedma to the Ruta 40 and on the southern shores of shining Lake Argentina before climbing up on to a plateau from where we will have great views back to the mountains of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre and Lake Argentina. Crossing into Chile we’ll do a loop through the Torres del Paine National Park on the bikes, and have several stops to enjoy the stunning landscapes, including the viewpoint of the Cuernos, the waterfall del Paine and the Grey Lake.

On our way south to Punta Arenas we´ll pass a lagoon with flamingos and will visit the Penguin Colony of Otway before we take the Ferry over the Strait of Magellan to reach Tierra del Fuego again. After a windy ride over the island we’ll get to the border with Argentina. A short ride will take us to Rio Grande where from where carry on our  ride passing the village of Tolhuin, riding along the immense lake Fagnano and finally cross the Garribaldi Pass to reach Ushuaia again.

Do you have any question?

Our Tours are suitable for any experienced motorbike rider. You should have a riding experience of at least 10.000 km altogether and some 2.000 km over the last year. Off-Road experience is only necessary for as “difficult” marked tours, although some off-road riding experience of course is advisable.

Usually from all over the world you first have to fly to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. From there you go on a local flight to your starting destination. Depending on the tour you chose this would be Salta, San Carlos de Bariloche, Ushuaia or Mendoza.

There are two airports in Buenos Aires: The international airport Ezeiza (EZE) and the city airport Aeroparque (AEP). Usually you will arrive in Ezeiza, go through immigration, get your bags, go through customs. Then you probably have to change to the local airport Aeroparque to go on your local flight. You need to have 3-4 hours minimum between the arrival and take off if you change Airports in Buenos Aires

The tour begins with your arrival at the starting location. E.g. if the tour is dated 1.1.2025 – 10.1.2025, we meet in the evening of the 1st of January for briefing, handover of the motorbikes, welcome dinner, and you can catch a flight back on the 10th of January to fly back home.

You can take your flight back home on the date indicated as ending date. That is the day after the last riding day

It is recommended to get to the starting location one day earlier, we happily make a reservation for the room extension for you.

All the hotel nights with breakfast on the tour are included. Starting with the night of the meeting, handover of motorbikes and welcome dinner, ending with the hotel night of the last riding day.

You will need a decent riding gear, clothing for all kinds of weather and moderate temperatures, sun protection, personal items. 

  • Paperwork: It is necessary that you have a passport valid for at least another 6 months, a valid drivers license for big motorcycles, vaccination documents, credit card with min. 4.000US$ credit for the guarantee deposit.
  • Money: Cash US$ Dollars is the best to have. You can change US$ cash dollars in most towns, but they will not be taken as payment. Everything you want to purchase during your stay will have to be paid in local currency. 

    ATMs are found in bigger towns and cities, but you will be restricted to extract a small amount of cash each transaction, but you will be charged high bank fees.

    Credit cards are useless outside big hotels and restaurants, most shops don’t accept credit or debit cards.

Apart from the big cities, South America is safer than expected. It is very safe to travel in the countries we go to. In the mayor cities you have to take care of pick pocketers and scams as everywhere, but no violent crimes are to be expected.

The official language in all South America is Spanish, except for Brazil. English is understood and rudimentary spoken in Hotels, Restaurants and other touristic locations. Anywhere else you would need to speak and understand Spanish to communicate. 

You need an international health insurance that does not exclude motorcycling. It has to cover any possible hospitalisation, surgery, medicine and/or repatriation costs. It also has to cover explicitly COVID 19.

  • Vaccination: For Chile and Argentina there are no obligations for vaccinations expect Covid 19.

    Bolivia has an obligation for yellow fever vaccination but it is not controlled in the mountain areas where we are entering the country. 

    COVID 19: Travel rules due to the Covid 19 Pandemic are different from country to country and are changing frequently. With an internationally accepted vaccination proof it is possible to travel in most countries lately.

Due to the ongoing SarsCov2 Pandemic we are frequently adjusting to the changing rules worldwide and in Argentina. It is very important that you check the travel rules of your home country but also the ones you are traveling to.

If travel rules of the affected countries by your travel will make it impossible to participate on a tour with us, we will refund any payments you have made to us.
