Bike Rental: Carretera Austral One of the best experiences of my life. I rented a mountain bike from Austral Bikes 2 different times. First to do the loop around Lago Llanquihue and then to ride the Carretera Austral. Dian and Daniel were so kind, professional, and made sure I had everything I needed. The bikes were well maintained as I never had any issues. The whole process was enjoyable and I highly recommended Austral Bikes for all your bike needs.

Best service and support for my 10 day trip from Puerto Varas to Coyhaique Just came back from my trip to the Carretera Austral. Had the most amazing time and this is easily one of the most memorable trips I ever made. I contacted several different rental places to inquire about getting a bike with panniers and equipment for my 10 day journey from Puerto Varas to Coyhaique. Diana was super quick to reply with all the information I needed and answered all my questions super quickly and detailed. Diana even offered to order my gas tanks since I couldn't bring them by plane and they are at times hard to get in the different towns along the ride. When I arrived at the rental place I was kindly helped by one of Diana's sons, who helped me to prep my bike and get ready for my journey. The staff is super friendly, speaks english (which was nice for me since my Spanish isn't that great yet), and very accommodating. I got a brand new bike and helmet for my trip which was really nice! They also provided all the other necessary items (lock, panniers, extra tires, etc). All I had to do is to load up my luggage and go. Really nice way to start the journey. Throughout the trip, I could easily get in touch with the staff for questions and help. They responded quickly and were always ready to assist where needed. I paid a flat fee for the bike rental for 12 days and the return of the bike from Coyhaique. Overall very affordable I would say. I had to return the bike in Coyhaique to the transportation company which was quite easy to do and with that my trip came to an end. I'm already thinking about my next trip to do the rest of the C.A. (from Coyhaique to O'higgens) and without doubt I'm going to rent from Austral Bikes again. They made my trip so much easier and smooth. Their personal and attentive approach makes renting from them a real delight. Big thanks to Diana and her sons. I look forward to renting from you again soon!

Great choice to cycle the Austral! Had the best experience renting bike to cycle the Austral from these guys! They put a lot of thought and effort into preparing my bike and equipping me with tools and spare parts for the long way. The bike was excellent choice for the type of the road. I needed some assistance on the way as the bike was getting a lot of beating on the rough roads and Diana was always available, finding me people who could help and fixing things right away without any additional charges. They really helped me make my Austral experience so great. Can't recommend them enough!

Fantastic experience with a family cycling company We hired bikes from here to cycle to Frutillar. It was quite a long cycle, and in fact more demanding than I anticipated. The track from Puerto Varas is along a railway line and reasonably flat . It was just at the end, near Frutillar that it got a bit hillier. You have the option to cut a loop off the cycle but it is along a very dusty track. The bikes were good and the owners are easily accessible at all times via what’s app. This was good news, because, we sort of ran out of time and they collected us without any question, for which we were very grateful. My advise if you are doing the cycle is, set off early, and get clear directions as to how to get on the right paths. It is really beautiful and varied

¡Grande Austral Bikes! Tuve la fortuna de alquilar mi bicicleta en Ausral Bikes cuando viajé hace pocas semanas. Me atendieron muy bien, muy puntuales y las bicis están en excelente estado. La guía fue extraordinaria, amable, en realidad estuve muy muy feliz y lo recomiendo a todo el que vaya por esa zona sin dudarlo un segundo.

Excelente alternativa para ciclistas En repetidas visitas a la tienda desde hace un par de años atrás, dese que necesite un repuesto para mi bicicleta , he constatado que mantienen un nivel de servicio e inventario excelente y que uno no espera encontrar en una ciudad relativamente pequeña. Se nota que entienden de ciclismo y cuáles son las necesidades de los ciclistas. Aparte el servicio de arriendo de bicicletas y de todo lo que uno pueda necesitar, sirve a los distintos niveles de experiencia sin limitarse a un solo estándar. He visto cómo los dueños (que atienden ellos mismos) hacen el esfuerzo de renovar las bicicletas y los componentes disponibles todo el tiempo... todo con el mejor trato. Que sigan estos emprendimientos que permiten disfrutar el precioso entorno y las ciclovías sin tener que acarrear la ferretería con uno!

Me encanta la tienda Austral Bikes No es primera vez que he usado los servicios de Austral Bike. Me encanta esta tienda, pues siempre ha funcionado a la perfección. Entregan bicicletas de primera calidad, con todo el equipo de seguridad, como chalecos reflectantes, cascos, cámara de repuesto etc y lo mejor de todo es la cálida y eficiente atención que brindan. Además cuentan con servicio de rescate en caso de que por algún motivo uno tenga algún contratiempo en el camino. Les deseo lo mejor, pues se necesitan tiendas con el nivel de servicio que ustedes brindan, ya que dan la tranquilidad y confianza que uno necesita para poder disfrutar plenamente de la vuelta ciclística. Por otro lado me fascina Puerto Varas y sus alrededores.

Our main objective is to give you the best mountain bike experience!!
Going through beautiful places and enjoying incredible landscapes that only the south of Chile has to offer you.
You decide: either you can rent one of our mountain bikes or you can choose between one of our self- guided tours. It will only depend on the time you wish to spend, we will take care of the rest.

ABOUT OUR SELF-GUIDED TOURS

The pace is up to you:

You’ll be given an itinerary and an idea of where to go, but compared to a guided tour, you’ll have more flexibility about how much time you spend in each destination.

The beauty of a self-guided tour is that you can travel with whoever you want, friends, family, or even make friends with other travelers taking the same route as you, we will do all the research for you.

Similar to the guided tours, your itinerary will be pre-curated for you, with all the must-see spots.

It’s also much more affordable than hiring a guide who, in these cases, will do nothing more than follow the signs you could have very well followed yourself.

We can rent you camping equipment and take care of accommodation at some places if you want. Some of those hotels, hostels, lodges or cabins offer dinner that can also be waiting for you at the end of each day at your request.

We are willing to give you an incredible experience on two wheels!!
