This entry covers what we did two weeks ago. Di and I chose to stay in Chile while Colin and Don visited Buenos Aries. The break provided a chance to take time off the bike in an area where we could enjoy some hiking and forest scenery.

... her 15 mins before departure!!! We were picked up at 6am and taken to Pucon where we picked up all our mountaineering gear and 3 more tourists. We were a group of 12 with 4 guides. We drove to the Volcan Villarrica National Park to a ski resort where one chairlift operates in the summer. We took that lift up absout 400m, then started to walk.

We had the forest to ourselves and it was beautiful.
Onward bus to Valdivia, 3hrs.
