Discover Argentina

Bike Trip inspired by years of experience

I was initially drawn to northern Argentina when Tanya and I cycled there on our 2-year bike trip around the world from 1998-2000. We have been going back almost every year since then. It is definitely one of my favorite places to travel by bicycle – great riding, wonderful people, awesome food and wine, and beautiful landscapes. It is incredible. Join the ride!

DESCRIPTION

Visit Argentina in its purest form, unyoked from the rituals of mass tourism. Spend two weeks experiencing the cuisine, culture and breathtaking scenery of northern Argentina from the seat of a bike.

Beginning in the city of Salta, Argentina’s most stunning colonial city you will cycle on lesser-traveled paved roads winding through canyons, a cluster of vineyards, Andes mountain landscapes, and wild rivers.

HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE
  • Exploring Spanish tradition and culture in the local art and architecture.

  • Going back in time among the ruins of indigenous villages dating back to the time of the Conquest and Colonization.

  • Visiting local artisans.

  • Practicing your Spanish while shopping for regional delicacies.


This route has been developed over the past 18 years and it keeps getting better. We stay in boutique hotels and guesthouses and we bike to a new destination every day except rest days. This route offers opportunities to go on winery tours, play golf, go hiking or canyoning or just sit by a pool and relax after a good day of biking.

 

Rick and his team will take care of all the details including the bicycles and gear, guides and safety, local activities, route planning, food and snacks, accommodations as well as helping you with getting to and from Argentina.

MORE ABOUT THE BIKING

Traveling by bicycle can be challenging. This trip is for you if you are relatively fit and are comfortable with riding undulating terrain with some bigger hills. You like to ride your bike on vacation, but not every day. You can ride an average of 40mi/65km and up to 55mi/90km on a long day.

TIPS

Rick says this is one of his favorite places to bicycle travel. Don't you want to know why? It's no secret that Rick likes to ride his bike, enjoy good company, eat steak and drink wine.
