Itinerary description

Today the van will take us to the Sierra Nevada Range right through the tunnel Las Raíces, the longest tunnel in Chile (4,5 km or 2,8 miles). Here we’ll set off on our second ride, traveling alongside the Lonquimay River by an almost flat valley; this section features the Kutralcura Geopark and one of the smoothest roads. We’ll bike the Geopark territory through the lands of different Pewenches communities, ascending the international path Pino Hachado until reaching the Customs. The road is quite rolling with several flat sections and a few small climbs. If you want to pedal up some serious grades, it is possible to extend the route on 22 km (13.6 miles) more, until the peak altitude of 1.884 meters (6.181 feet above sea level). Once you reach the border line with Argentina you can enjoy breathtaking scenery of the Andes. Later we'll get in the van and drive back to our hotel.
Bike traveled distance: 36 miles + 14 miles.
Time cycling: 3,5 hours approx., with an optional additional 2 hours
