A result of the tourist boom in the area, Puerto Natales stopped looking at the Torres del Paine jealously and became a destination with an identity of its own.
Riding a bicycle is a practical way of visiting new places in the shortest time. It is possible to cover greater distances than on foot and it allows visitors to observe the surrounding environment with much more accuracy than from a car.
If we add a mountain path, beautiful panoramic sights around the Torres del Paine National Park, a lagoon whith crystal-clear waters where visitors may rest their senses and vertiginous descents among rocks, the program that the people from Sendero Aventura have preprared is mandatory for visitors who wish to enjoy an intense cyclo-tourism day.
A 4 x 4 truck carrying the mountain bikes in the roof rack took us 30 kilometers to the North of Puerto Natales. Pablo and Cristian –both guides– would explain the circuit around the surroundings of the lagoon. We left Route 9 and took a rubble road to the left and got the bikes ready to start our adventure.
