Visit Argentina in its purist form, unyoked from the rituals of mass tourism. Spend two weeks experiencing the cuisine, culture and breathtaking scenery of northern Argentina. Beginning in the city of Salta, Argentina’s most stunning colonial city you will cycle on lesser- travelled paved roads winding through canyons, vineyards, Andes mountain landscapes and wild rivers.
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.

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 vacations, but not every day. You can ride an average of 40mi/65km and up to 55mi/90km on a long day.
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.
