On this leg of our trip we crossed from the lake district of Chile to that of Argentina. We rode through three incredible national parks in the two countries and along Argentina’s famous “Seven Lakes Route”. It wasn’t the most direct route, but the best ones rarely are. This is what cycle touring really is about.
The road from Pucon, Chile to the border took us through Parque Nacional Villarrica along a steep and difficult, but beautiful, dirt road.
