Day 1: Villa La Angostura - Villa Traful. We start pedaling from the hotel on the back streets to the area of the River and Lake Correntoso. We begin going along Siete Lagos Route for about 20 km until we find an unpaved road that will take us to Villa Traful. This road goes uphill for about 900 meters until we reach a portezuelo. From there, 25 km going up and down along the shoreline of Traful Lake, always on the woods. Night in hosteria. Total: 60km.


Seven Lakes road

Day 2: Villa Traful - Filo Hua Hum. We start early on a curvy dirt road that will continuously alter between going up and downhill, with slopes that won't go over 100m. It will go along the shoreline of Traful Lake for about 25 km until we reach the confluence of the Traful and Limay Rivers. There we will take a road known as Paso del Córdoba. This unpaved road has a slight slope on the first 10 km, then it gets steeper going uphill until the first Portezuelo. Later it goes downhill and then uphill again to reach the actual place called "Paso". There, with an incredible view of the various colours rock formations, we start going downhill for about 12 km until we get to the Caleufu River, an ideal place for a stop and a snack or lunch according to the time of arrival. Later we keep going for about 10 km to our camping site. Night at Filo Hua Hum camping site. Total: 72km.


Day 3: Filo Hua Hum - San Martin de los Andes. From the camping site we take a 10km wide gravel road along Meliquina Lake shoreline. The first half is under sunshine and then we move into the shadowy forest towards the paved road that will take us to San Martin de los Andes. Night in hosteria. Total: 58km.
