Chile and Argentina

Epicurean Duo

The epicurean in you will love it! Cycling from Santiago to Buenos Aires via the Andes will give you a taste of the countless attractions offered by both countries. The wine-producing Colchagua and Uco Valleys will appeal to your Dionysian side, while the oceanfront affords a breathtaking view of the colourful hillside port of Valparaiso. Your route also takes you to Isla Negra, where you can visit the residence of poet Pablo Neruda, as well as to Mendoza and the surrounding region, including Chacras de Coria, with its unique microclimate, and Tunuyán, known for some of Argentina’s finest vintages.  And your adventure ends in style in cultural Buenos Aires, where you will be inspired to dance the tango.
