Your average Patagonian ripio, nothing out of the ordinary. Southern Carretera Austral has worse sections. Deflate your tires and expectations and you will be fine. A little bit of speed goes a long way in smoothing the washboards.

80km of route in very bad condition. parts with a lot of stone 🪨 and he sawed 🪚. With our sprinter it took us about 3 hours. Prepare for an earthquake😅. landscapes are amazing 😎

Report Check-In

We were expecting a lot worse based on descriptions for here and the one further north. Yes it has some washboard but no worse than any dirt road with reasonable volume of traffic and the sections are all relatively short in length. The scenery makes up for any slow sections

Report Check-In

For the guys traveling on 2 wheels… the first section 20kms or so until the first bridge over the Rio grande is pretty good, lots of corrugarían but with some speed, lowered tire pressure and decent suspension you can glide right over that stuff. The surface is decent and plenty grippy with no surprises. After the bridge, the following 50kms have some nasty sections. It’s more or less all river rock (read marbles) and in some areas it’s quite deep, waiting to swallow your front end! The last 15kms would be the worst ( we met a guy months ago in Peru who got caught… broken collar bone and badly beat up bike. Be aware…
