Bicycling Patagonia's Lakes District Plus! The Island of Chiloé

Bicycling Patagonia's Lakes District Plus! The Island of Chiloé

Join us on our 10-day Bicycling Patagonia's Lakes District Plus! the Island of Chiloé from Argentina to Chile tour where we will cycle paved roads across the Continental Divide in the Andes, from Argentina into Chile. At this latitude, the mountains are much gentler than the severe Peruvian and Ecuadoran landscapes that come to mind when you think of the Andes. Our route winds from the high plateau setting of San Carlos de Bariloche along Andean lakes, down through the valleys of the border region and into Chile's Lake District. Cycle past conical volcanoes and snow capped Andean peaks, one of Chile's famous rushing rivers, and relax in the tranquil settings of our lovely hotels.

Tranquil fjords, wooden houses and churches, the rugged coastline of the Pacific: The Island of Chiloé, in northern Chilean Patagonia, is remniscient of the landscapes in Scandinavia. Though it was inhabited long before the Spanish arrived in 1567, the island remained isolated from the commercial trade routes until the founding of the nearby port city Puerto Montt in 1853. During these three isolated centuries, a unique culture developed. The Chilote are of Spanish and indigenous Mapuche descent, and depend on their marine environment to support their way of life.

Pre-Trip Planning Checklist

To Do Today!

3–6 Months Prior to Departure

  • Reserve your flights after you know you have a confirmed tour departure. Please check with our office if you do not know if your trip is confirmed. As you make your plans refer to the Getting To and Away sent to you in your booking confirmation email it provides meeting times and the starting and ending hotels and shuttle information when applicable.
  • Book your pre and post-tour hotel nights. Please refer to the Getting To and Away sheet you received in your Reservation Confirmation Email.
  • 12 weeks before your tour begin your training program
  • Final payment is due 90 days prior to the tour start. Please refer to your Deposit Payment Invoice and the Final Payment Reminder e-mail you have received for detailed instructions.

6 Weeks–2 Weeks Prior to Departure

Day of Your Flight

Get as much sleep on the plane as you can. Pack your Getting To and Away information and one day of cycling gear in your carry-on. See you soon!

What to Expect on Tour


Your bike comes with a pack for the rear rack, lock, cyclometer (bicycle computer), a spare tube and patch kit and pump. If you would like to bring your own pedals and shoes we recommend doing so—your tour leaders will install them during the bike fitting. We have flat pedals with or without cages and straps available. For safety and hygiene reasons you are responsible for bringing a helmet. Daily Routine (Procedures and Logistics)


Each day you'll receive a daysheet with information on the day's activities, meals and ride. These also include Tour Leader phone numbers, hotel information and interesting historical and cultural information about sites that you may want to stop and see along the route. Your Tour Leaders will also post daily announcements in the hotel lobby with information about sightseeing in town or restaurant recommendations for dinners on your own as well as important information about breakfast, luggage down and "arrows down" time.

Navigating on Tour

At breakfast each day we will make the "Master Route Map" available so you can highlight your map for the day's ride. Of course, we also mark the route every day with our signature chalk dust arrows. Our arrows make navigating very easy—you may never need to look at the map! The arrows also allow you to ride at your own pace. There is no need to "keep up" with the group—this is your ride!

But what if it rains? What happens to the arrows? In a light rain, the arrows actually "set up" and become more permanent. In a heavy rain, they do wash away. If that happens, we'll re-group to cycle together for those who want to continue cycling while those who prefer to stay dry can shuttle.

Van Support

The van carries luggage and supports cyclists. It also has water, fruit and snacks. Though the van has snacks, we encourage you to stop and enjoy markets and find your own favorite local specialty.


We have carefully chosen all of our accommodations for their charm and location. They are typically small, family run hotels that offer you a glimpse into the local culture.

We prefer hotels near interesting sites in the center of town located along the best cycling route in the area. Because many of the hotels are small not all of the rooms will be exactly the same. We keep this in mind and do our best to distribute rooms fairly by the end of the tour. Our itinerary lists our primary hotels. On rare occasions, listed hotels are subject to change.

Meals and Restaurants

Breakfasts: we work hard to arrange complete breakfasts but some hotels still serve continental style breakfasts; cycling is energy intensive so we do recommend you plan for a morning or mid-morning snack on the road at a local café or market.

Water is OK in almost all hotels and in country fountains; if there is a problem, we will advise you.

We'll recommend lunch locations en route and most itineraries include a few group picnics. We limit the number of picnics so you don't feel pressured to be at a certain place in the middle of your ride.

Dinners together are often pre-planned and pre-ordered. We'll ask you if you have special dietary requirements. Preplanned meals allow us to provide a variety of regional specialties and facilitate efficient service. Water, wine and beer are included.

Tipping Your Tour Leader Team

If you feel your tour leader team has demonstrated great expertise and service, common practice within the travel industry is to tip. Tipping is voluntary and greatly appreciated, and gratuity amounts vary widely. Should you decide to leave a tip, as a guideline, we suggest 5% of the tour cost per traveler – this for the entire tour leader team, not each Tour Leader. If you’d like to show your gratitude for your Tour Leaders’ excellent service you can give the tip to any member of the tour leader team, as they share it evenly. In order to avoid social tensions, we encourage you to tip as individuals and not as a group. If you feel your Tour Leaders did not quite meet your expectations, then we would like to know about it. You will also have the opportunity to leave your comments in our evaluation survey which we email to you after your trip.


We'll be taking photos throughout the tour and we encourage you to do the same. Please note that we may use these for promotional purposes. Please inform us if you prefer images of you not be used. We realize that many of our travelers are great photographers and often people want to share photos after the trip. We'd love to see and share your photos from the tour with the world so if you don't mind the possibility of being famous (at least in the ExperiencePlus! world) send us a link to your tour photo gallery, or upload your favorite 20 - 30 pictures to your tour departure gallery - we'll send you the link to that online photo gallery in your final email!

    William D.
    Goshin, CT
  • What was your favorite experience on this trip? So many... reaching the summit, seeing the penguins, enjoying the curanto dinner and lamb lunch.

    Diane C., Gabriola, Canada
  • Asked what is his favorite opera, a friend replied "the last one I saw." I feel somewhat the same about bike tours. (This is my fourth, the first with ExperiencePlus!.) Putting aside that bias, however, I have to say that you really did do everything possible to make this a first class and memorable experience. The cultural highlights are an extremely valuable addition to some great cycling.

    Guy C., Vallejo, CA
  • The stilt hotel on Chiloe Island was magical. We took a kayak up the lake to the Pacific coast swam in the ocean and that evening lay on the deck and wondered at the night sky. Fab. A great trip I will never forget, experience of a lifetime.

    Len C., Harrogate, UK
  • This was our first tour with ExperiencePlus! and I definitely look forward to the next one. From the folks working with us on scheduling to the guides and the people on the tour with us, it was really a great experience. Thank you.

    Terri T., Salt Lake City, UT - February 2019
  • A great holiday, great guides and great scenery.

    Richard C., Limavady, NO Ireland - December 2018
  • It was truly the greatest adventure of my life--at the age of 71. So glad I did it. Everyone was wonderful!

    Bonita O., Woodston, KS
  • The entire experience was fantastic. Nadine and others in the office were a great help in the beginning. From leaders to routes to meals to hotels, this was a terrific experience! Thank you!

    Paul T., Fort Collins, CO - February 2018
  • A brilliant way to see Patagonia at close range with local guides and experience. An excellent tour with great guides. 10 of 10. Would recommend.

    David E., Sydney, Australia
  • An experience of a lifetime! What was your favorite experience on this trip? I can''t say. Everything on this trip gelled. The guides, the cultural experience in Argentina and Chile, the other members of the group, and the riding was spectacular on a daily basis.

    Susan M., Syracuse, NY
  • The trip of my life! Two days stand out - cycling across the Andes and the ever changing scenery from Argentina to Chile, lunch and birthday cake on the border, followed by hot spas - a perfect end to a perfect day! Also the first day in Chiloe - ferries, waterfront restaurant, fields of cows by the cliffs over oceans, cycling, penquins and an amazing dinner - all in one day!!!

    Maz C., Shelter Island Heights, NY - February 2018
  • How would you describe this tour to a friend? Challenging cycling, amazing scenery, great cultural experience. Great trip! Thanks to all, I''''m sure we''''ll be back.

    Stephen & Allison F., E. Greenwich, RI - Feb 2018
  • I've taken numerous bike tours with various companies and will say that ExperiencePlus! offers the best value for the money. Also, I find my fellow bikers in the ExperiencePlus! groups to be the easiest to get along with and among the nicest I've ever met while traveling - no whiners! Some of the more expensive bike tour companies tend to attract more high-maintenance travelers (who care more about the hotel and dressing up for dinner than the biking), meaning the focus of their trips will often stray from the biking and cultural experience. I like the fact that ExperiencePlus! will choose/recommend restaurants where the locals themselves dine.

    Charlene L.
    Jersey City, NJ
  • How would you describe this tour to a friend? A very enjoyable cultural experience using bikes as a means of transportation that facilitates stopping and enjoying the country. There certainly is a fair amount of cycling effort but it is not a hard core cycling tour for hammerheads. Thanks for an awesome trip!

    Kevin M., Salt Lake City, UT - December 2017
  • Thanks so much for everything, I feel really blessed in having such nice tour leader all the time. And I'm in love with the Hotel Puelche in Puente Varras, archecturally it was interesting, the porportions and lay out, plus the food was goood.

    Barbara H.
    Lexington, MA
  • Fantastic scenery, a gorgeous view at every turn. Lakes, mountains, forest, volcanoes, wildlife, oceans, parks, it has it all. Great food at locations one would never find on one''s own. Warm and gracious people. Interesting accommodations, with a taste of every kind--B&B, high rise hotel, low rise hotel, park "lodges" and an all-inclusive resort. Challenging riding but one can''t have the scenery without hills.

    Jill W., Sarasota, FL
  • The guides were very good. Great trip.

    Thomas E.
    Houston, TX
  • Excellent, full of new information, new experiences. Great cycling. Chiloe - the phenomenal experiences with the people there. The market in Ancud, the curanto, phenomenal king crab lunch, dinner on the farm, seaweed collectors on the shore.

    Jo E., Appleton, WI
  • Thanks for a great ExperiencePlus!

    Jeff W., Fort Collins, CO
  • [What I liked most was] the ride to Fruitallar. It was so beautiful and not much traffic.

    Whitney R,
    Fresno, CA
  • The trip was well organized: the guides were attentive, informative, helpful and fun to hang out with; the hotels were great; restaurants that were included or recommended by the guides were fabulous; bikes were in "new" condition; the other people on the trip were great travel companions. I would definitely recommend your company to anyone looking for a bike touring company and I hope to make it on another one of your trips some time.

    Jeff F., Cottekill, NY
  • What was your favorite experience on this trip? Crossing the border from Argentina to Chile. The boat trip to see the penguins. Enjoying the company of my fellow travelers. The home cooked meal on Chiloe Island.

    Bill P., Meadville, PA
  • A great experience - with wonderful (and knowledgeable) local guides.

    Paul B., Sydney, NSW - February 2018
  • Spectacular scenery, good company, comfortable accommodations. My favorite exprience was the three days on Chiloe.

    Zoe E., Williston, VT
  • A great bicycle trip with such beauty, interesting country, people, food, and wine. The guides are great! Fun, helpful, interesting! The road markings are good. The hotels, food, and wine wonderful. ExperiencePlus! has bicycle trips down! I am a big fan and look forward to my next trip!

    Josephine C., Hilo, HI
  • Great biking, fabulous scenery, extraordinary guides... Would definitely use Experience Plus again, especially in Argentina with the same guides. Have already sung your praises to a number of biking friends. From my first phone call, through trip prep and then the tour, everyone was professional and went out of their way to make this the trip what we wanted. Phenomenal customer service.

    Sue R., Vail, CO
  • One of the best bike trips ever, and we have had many. I can not say enough good things about the trip. I forgot to mention the navigational arrows, what a joy.

    Elena P., New York, NY
  • Bravo!

    Pam N., Fort Davis, TX
  • The combination of gorgeous routes and extra cultural experiences made for a totally rich experience. We would head out every morning eager to see what fabulous surprises awaited us. And of course our guides were the best! One of the best vacations of our lives!!!!

    Starr and Phil T., Ft Collins, CO
  • I''ve told my friends that this tour offered us the best of both worlds - a company to take care of the travel arrangements, support, and transfers, but with the advantage of not being wedded to a group 24/7. I enjoyed the freedom of riding at my own pace and having opportunities to stop and soak in local sights and culture as much as I wished. My favorite experience was when we cycled around the Island of Chiloe. I loved the quiet roads, jaw dropping scenery, and the friendly people we encountered along the way.

    Margaret M., Salt Lake City, UT - December 2017
  • What was your favorite experience on this trip? Hard to choose...stunning scenery, challenging climbs, helpful, supportive tour leaders. I also loved the garden luncheon, and enjoyed the farm tour.

    Julia V., Nottingham, NH
  • We just returned from the Argentina - Chile trip and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had. The tour leader did an outstanding job leading this inaugural journey and along with our Argentine guides made our ride fun and interesting. The Chiloé extension only added icing to the cake. What a beautiful island filled with very special people and gorgeous scenery. I would highly recommend to anyone going on the bicycle trip to not miss this added bonus. It is well worth the time and money.

    Larry and Corky B.
    Herkimer, NY
  • Empanadas at the top of the Andes.

    Thomas E., St Paul, MN - February 2019
  • How would you describe this tour to a friend? I would (and have) told them 1) that I had a great trip; 2) that the guides were wonderful; 3) that the mountains were exquisite; 4) accommodations and interesting meals were fabulous.

    Benjamin L., Washington, DC
  • I had so many great experiences but I think Chiloé Island was awesome. We saw penguins, had a really special lunch, stayed in the stilt hotel, went out to the lunch on the farm and had a really great ride along the river to the National Park. The people were so friendly! The lake district was beautiful and the volcanos and mountains were stunning.

    Renee C., Johnston, IA
  • Two weeks riding through a great place with great folks. I loved lunch at the border of Chile and the hot tub soak at the end of that day at the all inclusive spa.

    Richard H., Raleigh, NC
  • Wonderful, wonderful food including meals that were at the homes of local residents. Consistently good lodging. Excellent, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable guides. Much beautiful scenery.

    David S., Appleton, WI
  • Do it. Do it. Do it. Trip of a lifetime. If a medium strength rider, ask for the E-bike and just have fun!

    Melinda C., Renton, WA
  • Great trip with excellent and knowledgeable leaders as in all my ExperiencePlus! adventures.

    Ole L., Fort Worth, TX - February 2019
  • I was very impressed by the local character of most of the places we ate at, like lunch on the seashore the last day in Chiloe. Biking in beautiful scenery, mountains, and rural roads. An introduction to Chilean coastal culture.

    Jack R., Cary, NC
  • This was an excellent, well organized trip that gave us the opportunity to see another part of the world that we would not have done on our own.

    Gary P., Tucson, AZ - December 2018
  • Everything about the trip was excellent, from the well designed routes and navigational arrows, to the guides who were amazing in their knowledge and friendliness and willingness to make the trip a memorable experience.

    Judi B., Waban, MA
  • [What I liked most was] The biking and the treatment we received from the tour leaders. Especially the birthday cake they provided at the day-three dinner for my 61st birthday.
