Hoping to ride southern half of the Careterra austral in Chile in December. Thinking of maybe ferrying from Puerto Montt (northern point of CA) to Aysen and then riding south from there .
Based on research this might require about 3 weeks on bike given some is unpaved roads/ripio meaning slow-ish cycling. I think this is about 600km.
My original trip partner recently got a job and can no longer go (unless the job doesn't last) and I think it would be more fun with others!
Will involve a combo of camping and roofed accommodation hostels, guest houses, due to distances between towns. Hoping to do some trekking after the ride from el chalten/ Fitzroy and then maybe some more in Torres del Paine.
I have 5 weeks off in total and would like to be riding by relatively early in December
