Day 1: Santiago - Cambarbala.
Today we start our journey after the rush hour in busy Santiago and head up north trough the fertile Aconcagua Valley where the world famous Chilean fruit grows. After passing trough the small town of San Felipe the road will take us to Putaendo. Prepare to ride the winding "S" curves of the recently and lovely paved road to Cabildo. From here ancient tunnels will unveil the magnificent dirt roads that takes us deep into the mountains on a unique scenic route that will blow your mind. After our lunch stop in Illapel we continue our ride passing through the Chinchillas National Park. Later we will climb into a valley criss-crossed by old mining roads that take us further up the mighty mountain trail of "El Espino". An abandoned road will lead us up north to the friendly town of Combarbalá where we spend the first night. Combarbalá is a semi desertic valley surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape which is better seen at the time of sun set by its colorful pink sky. The typical handcraft product of this area are objects made out of a semi precious stone called "Combarbalita". This night we will enjoy a great meal in a cozy restaurant and sleep in a nice hotel. If the time allows us there will also be a chance for a visit to the Cruz del Sur local observatory for a stargazing tour.

DAY 2: Combarbalá - Vicuña
Today we will continue further north as we head towards an amazing mountain trail which takes us to the beautiful valley of Tulahuén. We follow along the stream of Rio Grande on our way to the town of Monte Patria. We will pass along one of the dams that hold the precious water for the increasing agricultural activities of the region. After a lunch stop in Ovalle we'll fill up our tanks preparing to roar through winding roads as we enter deep into the breathtaking canyon of Rio Hurtado where the delicious smell of goat cheese will reach your senses. As we go north we prepare to go up in the mountains on a mind blowing dirt road- We pass the heights that hold the Tololo Observatory. We will stop to enjoy the amazing views over the little town of Vicuña, home of our nobel price poet Gabriela Mistral. We continue our journey passing along the Pisco vineyards as we enter into the mystical Valle de Elqui. It holds a microclimate and provides 300 sunny days for the farmers to grow the finest Pisco grapes in the world. Today’s destination is Vicuña after our visit in Pisco Elqui, where we overnight in either cabañas (cabins) or hotels. Pisco is a grape brandy that was developed by Spanish settlers back in the 16th century. We will be able to taste this lovely drink tonight when we find a nice restaurant to have dinner

DAY 3: Vicuña - Santiago
This morning we should rise early for your journey back to Santiago. From Pisco Elqui we will head west following the contour of "Puclaro" dam as we start descending along the Elqui River until it pours out in the Pacific. We then head towards Coquimbo which is one of the significant cities here. On our way down south we take a loop into La Serena to see the white beaches. We will continue our way back roaring through the legendary Pan American Highway enjoying the view of the Pacific Ocean with the sun setting while we pass at the foots of the "Cordilera de la Costa". There will be numerous Highway towns, which invite us for a stop en route – we should definitely stop and stretch our legs at the mining port of Los Vilos where we'´ll have our last lunch at a typical Chilean restaurant. We continue our ride on the legendary Pan Americana Highway into La Ligua, where we stop for traditional sweets and ride further on to the Santiago City, which is considered to be one of the most modern metropolitan areas of Latin America, as it’s located in the middle the valley between the Andes mountains and the "Cordillera de la Costa". It´s been a great journey, not many riders can say they have seen so many different landscapes and enjoyed nature as we have. Now it's time to return our motorcycles to Ride-Chile.com's office.
