Secret Way: Lakes & Volcanoes
Bicycling the backroads of Lakes & Volcanoes
The dramatic landscapes of the Lakes & Volcanoes region in Chile have long appealed to cyclists, but the traffic on the highways dampened the enthusiasm. Pedalers' Chilean team has mapped out a route using small park service roads that takes you from lake to lake through this wonderful area, without hitting the big roads.
Imagine cycling along scenic lake shores, wildflowers dotting the alpine meadows with snow capped volcanoes reaching skyward as a backdrop. Pedal through forests of the unique Monkey Puzzle Tree, explore hot springs and small villages. The ride takes in the KÃ¼tralkura Geopark and Conguillío National Park, highlighting their wonders. We will take a day off the bikes for a delightful hike through Conguillío National Park. Even our hotels on this route are unique bedding down one night on a working horse farm, another night at a local brewery and several with hot springs on the premises.
