The 7 Lakes Route (Ruta de los Siete Lagos) through the Patagonian region is internationally renowned. A winding path through an epic mountain landscape leads past almost 40 picturesque lakes, seven of which are so magnificent that they gave the route its name and fame. This tour is one of the most spectacular journeys in Patagonia. Many of the lakes are fed by glaciers resulting in their crystal-clear waters. Our adventure leads through volcanic landscapes to stunning viewpoints, many of which we can savour while enjoying a picnic lunch. During the tour, we pass through various National Parks including Lanin and Nahuel Huapi. Look forward to exploring Circuito Chico, Cerro Catedral, Colonia Suiza, Quetrihue peninsula, and much more.
TO NOTE: This trip is combinable with the Northern Patagonia "Fire and Ice" Tour. Both tours add up to a two-week trip.
Throughout the trip, you will be accommodated in carefully selected, simple hotels, guesthouses, and lodges. Their charm and spectacular location never fail to captivate their visitors and many boast magnificent views of the surrounding lakes and volcanic landscape.…

MTB level 2
Daily tours in hilly terrain at distances of 18 – 37.5 mi./30 - 60 km and trails according to Single trail classification up to S1. The fitter you are the more you will enjoy your trip. We suggest that you adopt a sensible weekly exercise routine, gradually increasing your distances and/or terrain difficulty as the travel date approaches. We also recommend a number of long rides in hilly terrain to ensure you are physically capable of taking part in this tour. Biking is obviously the best activity to prepare for this trip, but running, squash and swimming are also good for developing aerobic fitness and stamina.
The hilly terrain with some steep climbs, as well as long downhills, requires good physical condition. The terrain is very diverse and variable: technical and demanding single trails alternate with wide gravel and volcanic roads and sometimes asphalt stretches. This tour takes place at relatively high altitudes but does not involve any significant adaptation to altitude. We would not expect any altitude issues on this trip but still recommend listening to any instructions given.
During the southern hemisphere summer, you can expect daytime temperatures of approx. 18 °C - 20 °C / 64 °F - 68 °F. November to April is the dry season in northern Patagonia, but rain can occur at any time of year in the Lake District. For most of this holiday, we can rely on the support of our vehicles. Each morning, when moving to a different overnight accommodation, the majority of the luggage will be loaded into the support vehicle, which will follow the group during the day ride.
The support vehicle will pick up any group members who wish to take a break from biking. Helmets are mandatory on all bike tours. Please bring your own helmet. Furthermore, we recommend participants bring arm and leg protectors on the bike tours.
To ensure that you are well prepared for your bike tour with Islandhopping and know what technical difficult level to expect, we have created a classification for all single trails that could be ridden on our tours. The difficulty levels included in our classification coincide with the Single Trail Scale which can be found here
