Enjoy a full-day mountain bike adventure in Punta Arenas and have a true Patagonian experience. As you bike, you will be able to see the beautiful Patagonian outdoors and landscapes including protected forests, unique trails, outstanding views and a very special climate. Your tour includes a professional guide, equipment and transportation.
Your tour starts with hotel pickup in Punta Arenas. Meet your guide and drive to the trail where your ride begins which is about 20 minutes away from hotels in Punta Arenas. Once there, you will receive a safety briefing, set your bike and equipment up for maximum comfort and start your adventure.
The trails where the tour takes place are located next to the city. The tour is divided into 3 areas which are: La Araña trail, Reserva Forestal Magallanes and the Ski Center. Each of these will offer different soils, views and abilities. You will start in La Araña trail, an old logging road, crossing through lenga and coigue forests. You and your group will ride up to the highest point where you'll get a spectacular view of the Strait of Magellan, Tierra del Fuego Island and the Otway sound. Then, you'll begin the first 12-minute decent filled with action and adrenaline as you ride between forests, tobogans and magical Patagonian colors.
After crossing a small stream, you will continue towards Reserva Fprestal Magallanes where you can enjoy a full energy snack in a protected native forest. From there, you will start riding towards the ski center, along the north side of Rio de las Minas, the most important river in Punta Arenas. This decent will take approximately 20 minutes and you will make some stops to appreciate the spectacular views of the Magellanic landscape.
The Punta Arenas ski center (Club Andino de Punta Arenas) is one of the first ski centers in Chile. Today, it is giving way to the development of mountain biking. It has several tracks designed to enjoy this adventure. After a short break, you will enjoy riding through the last portion of the tour, using these southern mountain bike trails in the ski center.
After a fun-filled time, you will be taken back to your hotel in Punta Arenas.
