If you love sports, enjoy nature and wandering among landscapes on your bicycle, we are going to tell you about four destinations you can cycle throughout Chile.

San Pedro de Atacama, Difficulty: Medium

You will find many places that rent bikes for the day in the center of San Pedro de Atacama, allowing you to roam the desert on two wheels. You can reach the Mars Valley, the Moon Valley, the Devil’s Throat and Salt flats of the Atacama, on a bicycle over medium difficulty tracks. Interested in archeology? Visit the Pucará of Quitor.
You must remember that this is a high altitude desert: very hot during the day with temperatures dropping towards the evening, nights can become very cold indeed.

Valparaíso, Difficulty: Easy

Valparaíso is characterized by its colorful streets, culture, street art and gastronomy. Many tourists decide to get to know this city and its hills by bicycle, while learning about the Buenos Aires history that led this city to become a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2003. Another route to enjoy is the one that connects Viña del Mar with Reñaca and Concón, where you can travel the entire Pacific coast with incredible landscapes to the beaches and bays.

Carretera Austral, Patagonia, Difficulty: Medium / Difficult

Chilean Patagonia is one of the best trips you can make in your life. If you are adventurous and want to make this bicycle route, we will give you some recommendations: The Carretera Austral is a long road (of gravel), where you will walk between 40 and 60 kilometers a day. But it is worth the effort, because you will see green landscapes, evergreen forests, lakes and lagoons that cross the Carretera Austral, rivers for fly fishing and you can enjoy endless activities such as visiting Queulat National Park, General Carrera Lake, Marble Caverns, and much more. We recommend you travel to Coyhaique and from there start your trip to the Carretera Austral north or south. Both alternatives are extraordinary.

Easter Island, Difficulty: Medium

Easter Island is another destination that you can visit by bicycle. You can rent in the city of Hanga Roa and from there do all the excursions such as visiting Anakena beach, the crater of the Rano Kau volcano, and all the moais on the island. We recommend you to plan a trip of 4 or 5 days so you can enjoy its culture, its landscapes and the history of Rapa Nui.

Valparaíso, Difficulty: Easy

Valparaíso is known for its colorful and steep roads, culture, street-art and gastronomy. Many tourists decide to discover the city and its hills on a bike, while absorbing the history and uncovering the port’s story and how it became a UNESCO Heritage of Humanity in 2003. Another biking circuit to enjoy links Viña del Mar, Reñaca and Concón along the coast of the Pacific with beautiful scenery, golden beaches and bays.

Southern Road, Patagonia, Difficulty: Medium / Hard

In a lifetime, the Chilean Patagonia is one of the best trips you will ever take. If you are adventurous and want to take this route, we would like to point you out: the Southern Road (Carretera Austral) is a long, mostly gravel-covered road on which you will bike for 40 to 60 kilometers a day.

However, every effort is worthwhile, luxuriant landscapes, evergreen forests, lakes and ponds that lie along the Southern Road, rivers for fly-fishing and many other activities such as visiting the Queulat National Park, General Carrera Lake, Marble Cathedrals and many other marvels will enthrall you. We recommend first going to Coyhaique; Begin your trip to the Carretera Austral, whether north or south from there. Both alternatives are breathtaking.

Easter Island, Difficulty: Medium

Easter Island is another destination to visit on your bike. Rent a bike in Hanga Roa, all excursions start there. Visit Anakena beach, the crater at Rano Kau volcano and the Moais. We recommend planning to 4 to 5 days stay, to fully enjoy the culture, landscapes and history of Rapa Nui.
