Transpatagonia

Medium

An adventure mountain bike trip that goes right into the heart of Patagonia. Connecting the Pacific and Atlantic ocean, crossing the Andes and riding through Patagonia along the Somuncurá plateau.

We follow off the beaten roads and single track paths while discovering fantastic views and also meeting the local population.
