North Argentina

Postby dannytrigger » 12 Oct 2017, 6:41pm

Hello, I am going to be cycling in North Argentina in a couple of weeks. I have a flight into Iguazu (border between Brazil/Paraguay/Argentina) and out of Santiago in Chile. I have 6-7 weeks. The whole stretch is 2,500km, but I want to enjoy it and not rush it, so I won't be cycling all of it.

Has anyone cycled in that area? Any tips? Good routes/places to aim for? Bad routes/places to avoid?

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated

Foz de Iguacu is an amazing place. Give yourself time after you arrive and make sure you visit La Garganta del Diablo as part of your visit. Stay on the Argentinian side. I haven't cycled there so can't offer you advice. Enjoy the mountains.
