River Pilot Tours Patagonia Tour Map     During the beginning of the tour, riders will quickly notice the wild series of inlets and land formations that make up southern Chile and how this carefully scouted trip heads east up into the Andes Mountains before going further south into Patagonia. Passing through Parque Nacional Puyuhue and later Nahuel Huapi, riders can see it’s going to be a fantastic ride. Patagonia is a wonderful cross section of mountains, lakes, glaciers, vast open spaces and vegatation that inspires one to explore and savor each day.

    The motorcycle riding in Patagonia is unique. When riding in other countries, riders typically experience various landscapes that diverge slowly and offer consistent views. In Patagonia, the views change on a daily basis. Riders can be within miles of a glacial archipeliago in one moment, meandering along miles of long, gravel unpaved sections the next and with the coming turn be greeted with idyllic open valleys filled with majestic trees and lakes. Artists and photographers venture to Patagonia to capture the epitome of outdoor landscapes. This is a land of unspoiled beauty.

     If one of your lifes dreams is to go towards the town of Ushuai near the Straits Of Magellan, this tour will fultill that dream. After visiting the Torres del Paine National Park, Chile you will continue farther down towards the famous tip of south america town that signals you have made it across some of the most beautiful and rugged country in the world. Get your picture taken, ride further south or reflect on just how remarkable it is to ride on one of the worlds most beautiful continents. While one more dream is reached, others await.
