Chile & Argentina
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Chile & Argentina cycling holidays...
Susan Pritchard, Manchester, United Kingdom
redspokes provided a trip of a lifetime. The guides were very helpful and friendly making sure we all had everything we needed, especially coffee and food at the rest stops! The organisation was first class with clear itineraries each day. The route was beautiful. There were a few tough days but the scenery made the hard work worth it, especially staying in the refugio on Osorno volcano and the views from there. Some of the group even fitted in a few hours skiing on the volcano! The boat rides provided chill out time and awesome scenery as did a visit to a thermal spa. The group we had was great, we were from 7 different countries but we had shared interests of adventure and fun! I highly recommend this trip!
Tom Carroll, Bishops Stortford, United Kingdom
I had never been on a group cycling holiday before so I was not sure what to expect. I am very pleased to say that this was an absolutely fantastic experience. The scenery in both Chile and Argentina was truly spectacular. Cycling beside the huge lakes with the snow topped volcanos was stunning.
The two guides Jeronimo and Gustavo were so helpful and friendly. My fellow cyclists from all over the world were really great company and very supportive of each other.
The accomodation and food varied from location to location but was always great.
I really loved it. I'm already planning another trip.
Janet Clark, Richmond, Canada
Our ride with redspokes on the Chile & Argentina, Patagonia and Lake District trip was simply wonderful. We shared the trip with a great group of fellow cyclists together with our thoughtful redspokes leader and support driver Jerónimo and Gustavo. We rode mostly on quiet roads with little car traffic though beautiful landscapes - normally with one or more volcanoes on the horizon. The accommodation was always comfortable and ranged from locally flavoured homestyle inns to incredible rustic lodges perched on the side of a volcano. Everything was well organized from the booking, to the airport transfers, bike rentals, and of course the daily logistics. This is a trip I definitely recommend offering interesting cycling routes, good company, and beautiful vistas.
Kim Mygatt, Santa Cruz, California, USA
Geronimo and Diego were the best guides ever! (give them a big bonus, please!) The scenery was spectacular, and we had pristine weather to boot. The group was really enjoyable and fun. The steak dinner we had in Bariloche was one of the best ever! The roads were often empty, which was nice. I didn't know Chile and Argentina were so beautiful! I'd like to go back! Thank you for a great experience.
Keith Russell, Bath, England, UK
I had high expectations for this tour but it exceeded those expectations in pretty well every way. The scenery is spectacular but what pleasantly surprised me was that every day had something a bit different, from volcanoes to lakes to lava plains to gravel roads through forests or 15 km downhill screamers on tarmac. The guides were truly amazing; they put a lot of work in every day including the morning briefing, setting-out the 'magic table' at the always-welcome break stops (chocolate, coffee, bananas, energy bars, water) and loading and unloading the bikes and gear into the support vehicles. They calmly smoothed out any language or culture hiccups.
Diego and Jeronimo are also just two lovely blokes who are smart, work hard and genuinely cared about giving us clients a great experience. The trip has a fair amount of off-tarmac riding which was a big part of why I chose it but if you don't like gravel roads and just want tarmac, this trip isn't for you.
Zara Thatcher, Worthing, UK
The trip was amazing. The guides Diego and Jeronimo was very knowledgable and passionate about both countries. Couldn’t fault the trip at all and would recommend it to anyone
Connie Demmel, Mainz, Germany
Thank you redspokes for another truly wonderful cycling experience. We so much enjoyed our time - the beautiful countryside, a lovely and inspiring group of people and excellent rides every day.
Kristina Isberg, San Diego, USA
This was our third redspokes tour and it was great. Our guides were outstanding, providing with the right information at the right time. The scenery of northern Patagonia was stellar.
Ros Lawson, Edinburgh, Scotland
What an amazing trip! Chile, Argentina & the Lake District of Patagonia are so incredibly beautiful and we never tired of the snow-capped mountains and volcanoes and the crystal clear water in the lakes. Our two guides were so friendly and helpful & the trip was run extremely well. We stayed in some gorgeous accommodation and ate in lovely restaurants recommended by the guides. This was my 9th cycle tour (4th with redspokes) and one of my favourite destinations. Learning to speak Spanish is definitely on my agenda!
Mark Webb, Adelaide, Australia
This was certainly the best cycling trip I have done, and I have done 5 or 6 others. A very beautiful part of the world. We were blessed with great weather and a great group of like minded cyclists.
