An easy start to the day as the ferry from our hotel back across to our bikes on the other side of the Fiord was only leaving at 9:30am.
A quick puncture repair on Frosty’s rear tyre and we were off in the dirt in the rain. The unpaved road led us along the banks of the fiord and round the hairpin bends of the rain-washed mountains of Chilean Patagonia climbing straight up the mountain through too many switchbacks to count.
A quick run down the other side and we hit beautiful new tarmac with amazing sweeping bends of the Carretera Austral.
We rode through knee high grassland filled with extremely healthy looking cattle, surrounded by rocky snow peaks and the sight of multi-coloured expanses of flowers
We arrived at the Patagonia Hotel in Coyhaique, where a Chilean roast gourmet dinner awaited us to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
Happy New Year everybody!!
