Biking and Walking
ARGENTINA & CHILE BIKE TOURS
From Winemakers to Cowboys
On this journey from Chile to Argentina we’ve linked two fascinating wine regions – each featuring incredible, award winning hotel lodges – with a night in the UNESCO World Heritage site that is the port city of Valparaiso. Bike along quiet, well paved roads and encounter everyone from winemakers to cowboys, with plenty of time at the end of the day to enjoy some R&R poolside.
Day by Day
Day 1 Rendezvous this morning at the Singular hotel and head to Vina Vik, the heart of Chile’s wine country. Ride around the Puchipuy loop, exploring the rural countryside of Chile’s central region
Day 2 Bike into Colchagua Valley, one of the oldest and now most well regarded wine-producing regions in South America. Stop for lunch and a wine tasting at the Montes Apalta winery.
Day 3 Ride through our friends private winery on our way to a barbecue lunch and Chilean cowboy demonstration. From here it is a short drive to Valparaiso where we will embark on a tour of some of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods.
Day 4 Arrive in Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina. Tonight, join in on a special affair, hosted by a local winemaker in a very private location within the resort hotel.
Day 5 Ride downhill through the Andean foothills. As our ride levels out pass by vineyard and orchards, eventually arriving at the Posada de Salentein. Tonight, after a fun empanada-making session, complete with mud oven, we’ll sit down for dinner under the stars.
Day 6 Today, ride straight from the lodge into the lower Uco valley, visit the AmazingClos de los SieteProject, a joint wine venture of 7 French wine producers and enjoy a picnic lunch at the vineyards.
