Epic Rides in Argentina
Ruta 40 – Patagonia
This Epic Ride is from Bajo Caracoles towards El Chalten. It’s long, boring, windy and flat. But when you finally arrive back near the Andes at El Chalten, you’ll be glad you took the challenge.

Why is it an ‘Epic Ride’
Maybe ‘Epic’ is not the right word… This ride is more interesting because of the challenges and not so much on twisty roads and amazing scenery. But if you’re heading south, there aren’t many other roads to take 🙂
It’s a isolating crazy ride, full of wind, and barely any fuel stations.
