We are on an ~18-month bicycle tour through South America. We started in Medellín, Colombia, in June 2018 and headed south through the mountains of Ecuador and Perú. When the springtime rains caught us, we dropped down to Lima on the coast and B-lined to Santiago, Chile. From there we ride south through Patagonia during the southern hemisphere's summer. After that we'll return north to explore northern Argentina and Chile, Bolivia, and some locations in Brazil (any suggestions?). We plan to spend most of our time in the Andes, but will let the road take us where it will.
We've completed our ride south down Patagonia, and down the continent, finally making it to Ushuaia, the southernmost city on our journey. We're catching up on our blog here before heading up to northern Argentina to meet Kacia's parents for some new adventures in the middle of the continent!
You can see our track on the map below or, better yet, by visiting our Track My Tour website, where you will also see an up-to-date photo and anecdote from each location we've stayed.
We had heard that Patagonia has just two seasons – winter and February. This created the only deadline for our entire bike trip: to arrive in Patagonia in time to ride to the southern tip of the continent by the end of February.
