Tour de Chile
Tour the world by bike, the “tour de chile” trails around Chile’s lakes, mountains and volcanoes. This is a seven day bicycle tour, with 4-5 hours of cycling a day. Read more below from, Cycling Chile’s Lake District.
“Our seven-day cycling tour was organized by Amity Tours, a small family-owned tour company in Temuco, Chile. It included a week in two of Chile’s 11 regions (similar to U.S. states) and ranged from Temuco to Puerto Montt. Our tour guides accompanied us, arranging our meals and lodging, and helping with the luggage and lingo.
Allejandro, the tour company owner, drove the van and arranged our daily routes so we saw the best views of Chile’s stunning lakes, waterfalls, and snow-capped volcanoes. Each day seemed more gorgeous than the day before.
Ernesto, our cycling guide, rode with us and served as escort, naturalist, and motivator. He is a competitive (former country champion) mountain bike racer, who is now studying to be an adventure tour guide.
He’s 28, handsome, and built like a Tour De France rider. I admit that I was intimidated by him at first; after all he’s young and talented, has legs of steel, and unlimited energy.
Ernesto literally rode circles around us for a week; rotating among us, checking to see how we were doing and offering encouragement.
After we finished our daily 4-5 hour cycling tour, Ernesto would ride his mountain bike around a lake, or up a mountain, while we soaked in a hot tub or relaxed in our rooms.”
