Argentina is a huge country. It took driving up the Atlantic coast for me to truly grasp just how gigantic it was. Before starting our never ending push north to Uruguay, we were constantly crossing back and forth across Chile…

After nearly two years on the road, we have finally reached the end of our planned travel in South America. We could go on and on, I think, as far as riding this continent or moving on to others.  There…

The drive from Chile to Argentina through Paso Jama wowed us for hours. It was a slow, steady climb up to 4800m in Chile and then a wicked, winding descent in Argentina. This route is on our highly recommended list!…

Toen we aan het eind van de Carretera Austral uitkeken over het meer hadden we het gevoel dat we het einde van de bewoonde wereld hadden bereikt. Villa O’Higgins was het laatste dorp op de route en vanaf dit punt…

Perito Moreno National Park, not to be confused with the famous Perito Moreno glacier in Los Glaciers National Park, is tucked away in a remote area of Argentina near the Chilean border. It is one of Argentina’s oldest parks having…
The endless roads of Argentina. And believe me when they are gravel they feel like they will never end.

Patagonia- Where the road has no end

I am not sure anyone can be prepared for the vastness that is Argentina. It is a huge country, separated by thousand upon thousands of miles of open pampa. It feels wild, untouched and uninhabitable in many areas where we…

We ride the 95-100 miles up to Posadas on the River Parana and park up at a large building just before the bridge that crosses to Paraguay and go inside.  But this isn’t the Immigration and Customs office for us. …
