Finally, after several years, we return to Patagonia along the Carretera Austral with a breathtaking Argentinean variation. And once again we will be bikepacking, without support vehicles but with the security of travelling accompanied by expert guides with twenty years’ experience on these trails.
Once we reach Balmaceda, in Chile, and after setting up our bikes and shopping for food, we will head south for about 800 km (including navigation) in 11 stages with a rest day at the foot of the majestic Fitz Roy in El Chalten. We start cycling on 4 December to reach El Calafate on 16 December and visit the hypnotic Perito Moreno glacier the next day.
Epic Patagonian gravel and its magnificant trails await us.

The Carretera Austral is there to be lived. Let’s go together and live well!
Andrea would have liked all this!!!
For the success of this expedition and the safty of all participance the creation of a strong team is absolutely imparative. No one will be left bihind or in difficulty for any reason. It will be the responsibility of not only the guides, but also of each team member (participants) to help solve any and all kinds of problems that arise during the trip. It will not only be an unforgettable journey, but also a unique opportunity to experience selfeducation in group consciousness, to share joy in fatigue, planning, organisation, coordination, defeats as well as in successes.
Success will not be the arrival at the final destination, but through the journey. and knowing we have done our best to arrive, together.
Why Patagonia via La Carretera Austral? Because Patagonia is not only Argentina it starts much further north than anyone imagines. More over La Carretera Austral remains a land full of great adventure and wonder.
This is why we at PAC are always hungry to return for more!
