Full Itinerary

In the morning, you will meet up with your bike guide at our office in Puerto Natales. You will be fitted for a mountain bike at this time. Your guide will briefly go over the itinerary for the next few hours. Afterwards, you will jump in our vehicle and you will drive for about 30 minutes to the start of the bike route. The route begins in a forest, where there will be roots and rocks to bike over. Eventually, you will leave the forest and bike up a small hill. At the top of the hill, you will be able to stop and marvel at the surrounding landscape. On a clear day, it is possible to see for many kilometers in the distance! ​ There are good chances of seeing condors wheeling overhead and catching glimpses of hares and foxes darting through the brush. Afterwards, you will begin to bike around Laguna Sofia. There will be a few hills to bike up and cruise down. Eventually, you will reach the beach of the pre-glacial lake where our vehicle will be waiting for you. You will be driven back to Puerto Natales in the early afternoon.
