You don’t need reservations and you can pay in Credit Card or Cash. The ATM’s is on second floor.

All their shuttle services will drop you off at the hotel or address you are staying in Temuco. 

Driving time is approximately 35 minutes.

Upon your arrival at Temuco airport (9:30am), our local team will pick you up to start our adventure. We’ll drive passing through old-fashioned little towns like Cunco and Melipeuco until we get to Conguillio National Park, one of the most outstanding parks of the Lake and Volcano District in Chile. This wilderness protected area is also part of Kütralkura, the first UNESCO Geopark in Chile.

During the visit, you will witness how the Llaima volcano has permanently shaped the landscape of the area with its eruptions, and you’ll have the fantastic opportunity to walk on the lava flows and later we’ll visit the Truful-Truful Canyon and its waterfalls. This is the most important geosite of all the geopark, where you can see 13.000 years of eruptive activity of Llaima volcano.

After our first stop, we continue driving another 20 minutes to La Baita Lodge, the first eco-friendly accommodation in Chile. We’ll check-in, relax and eat lunch together. After a good coffee or the locals’ favorite “yerba mate”, we’ll get ready for our afternoon hike towards a viewpoint that faces the Llaima volcano and a huge valley completely covered in lava flows. The locals call this valley the “devil’s field”. Finally, we hike back to our lodge, take a shower and relax by the fireplace with a good book.

In the evening, a nice Pisco Sour (traditional Chilean drink) will be served and our local guide will introduce you to the following days.

Accommodation: La Baita Ecolodge
Meals: Lunch and welcome dinner
Total hiking time: 2 hours

We will begin hiking along the Sierra Nevada trail surrounded by native trees, including ancient monkey-puzzle trees or araucarias. We will hear and spot many endemic birds such as the chucao tapaculo, the magellan woodpecker and the noisy slender-billed parakeet.

The trail is equipped with 3 viewpoints and we’ll use them all. Each one of them with different angles to take-in the views of the Conguillío National Park, Llaíma and the Sierra Nevada volcanoes. After spending some time eating our packed lunch, taking pictures and enjoying the amazing view, we’ll hike back to the bottom of the trail and visit Playa Linda (pretty beach).

Afterwards, we will take our van and drive for about 2 hours until we get to the city of Villarrica. This lakeside city is flanked by a smoking active volcano and a big glacial lake, both named Villarrica.

Your hotel is located irght next to the lake and a pedestrian area with a bike lane. We’ll check-in and then start our bike fitting. Our guides will adjust the bikes to your satisfaction, so you can enjoy the next three bike rides across Chile’s first Scenic Route.

Each day brings new beauty on this tour, and today is no exception. Good news, no shuttle today! Before we start pedaling, our guides will check your bike again and conduct a short briefing session with a safety talk. This is a very well-supported bike ride, with a “sag-wagon” following the group for assistance all the time.  

Today we will ride one of Chile’s most scenic roads: The 7-Lake Circuit. We’ll pedal alongside the shores of two beautiful lakes, Calafquén and Panguipulli, and cover three-quarters of the way around Villarrica, a majestic, snow-capped active volcano. 

This road is smooth and with little traffic, with one climb at the beginning of the route. At one point we should be able to see five volcanoes: Villarrica, Quetrupillan, Lanin, Mocho and Choshuenco. 

Our first stop is at Lican Ray (kilometer 28 / mile 17), a summer beach town located next to Calafquen Lake. Here we can eat some snacks and refill our water bottles. We resume cycling and the road passes through green prairies, fruit farms and native forests. The lakeside road presents gentle rolling hills and gets quiet as almost no vehicles drive on it.  

As we ride this scenic route, we make the lunch stop at a very special place called Foye Mapu (km 51). Here a Mapuche family will welcome us in their home and feed us traditional food. They will share some of their ancestral culture and we can learn how to make “merkén”, a smoked chilli powder that is super tasty. 

Followed by lunch, there are 11 kilometers / 6,8 miles to cover in our saddles and arrive at the city of Panguipulli. Then, a short ride to the beach of Lake Panguipulli – meaning “land of lions” – while enjoying the views of Chile’s southern volcanoes. From there we pedal a few more blocks and arrive by bike to our next boutique hotel where we’ll eat dinner and stay overnight.

Today we start early and drive in our van (162 kilometers / 100 miles) from our hotel in Panguipulli, covering part of the Panamerican Highway, until we arrive at Cancura village to begin cycling. From this point we’ll start our ride towards quaint little villages with a strong German heritage, such as Puerto Octay and Puerto Clocker. 

The route consists of rolling hills with long flat stretches until we end the ride by the beach of Lake Llanquihue, where a unique landscape is waiting for us, the Osorno Volcano with its perfect cone. In Puerto Octay we’ll try local beers, eat lunch in a German style restaurant (kilometer 27, mile 17), and then explore the village on our bikes.  

The last section of 40 kilometers / 24,8 miles is dominated by the Osorno volcano and very green fields with grazing cows roaming freely. We can opt between a fully paved road or a gravel road that goes next to the lake. 

We’ll eat dinner together and celebrate conquering our second bike ride.

The first leg of this amazing multisport trip is about to end. In the morning, we leave our lodge on our bicycles, riding alongside Llanquihue Lake and across Vicente Perez Rosales National Park.

The unique landscape is stunning, with Calbuco, Puntiagudo and Osorno volcanoes at sight. 

The road is very quiet and fully equipped with a bike lane and several side-road viewpoints. Literally, the foot of the Osorno volcano reaches the shore of the lake and we’ll pass through the middle of this astounding landscape as we travel to the villages of Ensenada and Petrohue. 

This 35-kilometer (22-mile) northeast section of the Llanquihue Lake Route is one of the most beautiful routes of the tour. Finally, we will end our last ride arriving at Todos Los Santos in Petrohue, a turquoise lake located in the National Park Vicente Perez Rosales.

Today is the day when we give back to the planet and to the local communities of our destination. Rewilding means restore nature to the original state how it was before the perturbation made by humans. In our volunteer work today we will combine this regeneration effort to work with local communities, creating a virtuous circle where nature gets back and communities get benefits from that action. We will then move to the north part of the Lake to visit a brewery founded by a Canadian-American couple of friends and enjoy a barbecue with an open bar of different types of beer.

Helmets & Pedals

Most riders choose to bring their own helmets, but if you prefer, we have a small number of helmets available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.  Please let us know in advance if you’d like to use one.  

All our bikes are equipped with Cannondale platform pedals and toeclips.  We will be happy to substitute any pedals you choose to bring.  


Chile is by far one of the safest countries in South America in terms of public health and crime.

We are proud to affirm that our police is one of the least corrupt in the world; they are always friendly and helpful.  

Road Safety

Besides your own on-road safety gear (helmet, rear view mirrors, bright colored jerseys and gloves), we provide a support vehicle that drives at the rear of the group with a road-sign alerting other drivers the presence of bike riders on the road.

Drivers in Chile are used to bicycles on the road, so they shouldn’t bother you while riding. All our staff communicates by radio at all times.

Bicycle choice

If you bring your own bike, make sure you bring enough bike parts.

Pack your bike well in a bike box that we can easily dismantle for its transportation during the tour.

Weather notes

We suggest visiting the web for current conditions in Chile and doing your own research on this topic. or

Generally the weather in this area is very similar to Northern California, specially the coast side.

Late October and November (spring time in the southern hemisphere) present milder temperatures (50°F / 77°F) with some scattered rain.

During December you can start feeling the beginning of the summer with temperatures around 50°F / 81°F.  In January and February temperatures range between 60°F / 95°F.

Remember that you are visiting the Lake & Volcano district, so always expect some rain!

The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Also, the influence from the strong marine currents and Southern Patagonian Ice field make the weather hard to predict.

In Torres del Paine, in spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rains and eventually snow. Even in summer (December to march) you should come prepared to find cold, strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfalls.

The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC / 52ºF (24ºC max, 2ºC min). Rest assured, however, that just as quickly as the weather turns nasty, it can become pleasantly warm!

Night-time temperatures will most likely range from –1°C to -5°C (30s and 40s F) depending on the weather.
