Expeditie tur moto - in America de Sud - Patagonia

Mesaj  ClaudiaTransylvania la data de Vin Noi 26, 2010 4:26 am

Ne-am propus sa vedem America de Sud - incepem cu Patagonia, in 2011, umblam pe urmele lui Che Guevara, pana la Ushuhaia cel mai sudic oras de pe Pamint.

Tur organizat profesionist, cu insotitor local si camioneta de insotire.

Suntem 2 romani interesati, la tur mai vor sa participe 2 americani.
Mai sunt necesari 2 participanti platitori ca sa se tina turul.

Turul pleaca la datele fixate, in 19 februarie 2011 cu minim 6 motociclisti.

Pana acum sunt doi.

Ar mai trebui 4 ca sa avem plecarea garantata. Harti cu traseul disponibile.

Maximul de motociclisti pentru un tur este 14.


ATENTIE: nu organizam noi acest tur dar putem actiona ca intermediar intre organizator, agentiile de bilete si cei care mai vor sa participe - dupa cum poate sa-si rezolve fiecare biletele, pe cont propriu.
Platile putem sa le colectam noi sau putem cere factura pentru fiecare pasager in parte de la chilieni iar platile sa se faca direct cu ei.

Oragizatorul din Chile este o companie serioasa, unii dintre clientii nostri, australieni, care au venit in tururi moto de Transylvania cu noi si care au facut tur cu ei, recomandand compania din Chile.

Compania este furnizor de tururi pentru mai multi turoperatori din USA si Europa.


Biletele de avion sunt ofertate de Air Transylvania, Cluj.
Plecarile sunt din CLuj (pentruplecari din Bucuresti mai scadeti 100 de EURO.

Optiunea din oferta e cea care are cele mai bune conexiuni fara a fi necesara inoptare intre zboruri.


Ar mai exista o optiune, la un pret sensibil egal, Cluj-Madrid cu Wizzair, apoi transcontinental cu mentiunea ca la intoarecere e necesara o inoptare la Madrid (personal as opta pentru aceasta optiune – vreau sa mananc o paelia acolo, la ea acasa :-)

You may ride for several hours and not see so much as a fence. It is a land where you can expect to see some of the wild animals such as guanacos, Darwin’s rheas (similar to ostriches) and at least one type of armadillo. We pass the outpost settlement of Bajo Caracoles and finally reach the remote ranch where we will stay, at the Estancia La Angostura or in Gobernador Gregores in the case that the Estancia has no place, they have only 5 rooms and as a special treat we will be staying at a authentic rustic Chilean Ranch.

This is mostly a slack day, a day to recover from the grueling days of dust and gravel in the outback.
