Argentina, Chile

Argentina is renowned for some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the world, and what better way to explore it than on a mountain bike.


The Andean Northwest is a fantastic place to do this, with the beautiful red rock framing the surrounding area affording you some stunning vistas and hundreds of photo opportunities. With it being set at a high altitude, it is a mountain biker’s paradise. The Manantial Del Silencio is a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area – not only is it great value, but it also rents out mountain bikes to guests (so you don’t have to bring your own!). After you’re done mountain biking, you can relax in the perfectly peaceful environment and enjoy some of the perks of the hotel – including a restaurant, swimming pool and a local market that sells traditional handicrafts.

The natural terrain of both Argentina and Chile is so varied that there is bound to be something for every type of rider. Whether you’re after hill climbing in the beautiful Torres Del Paine National Park, a test of endurance in the arid Atacama Desert, or simply a relaxed ride around a rustic estancia in Salta, South America has it all.

Estancia Cerro Guido is another fantastic choice when considering where to stay on your mountain biking holiday to Chile. Located just 30 minutes from the Torres Del Paine National Park itself, not only does the hotel offers a prime location, but also has some spectacular views of the park, especially at sunrise and sunset. In addition, this boutique hotel has a rustic feel to it – with rooms that have been preserved from when the hotel was a working estancia in the 1920s. The combination of history, luxury and location second only to being inside the park itself, it is a perfect base from which to take your bike and explore the area.
