Finally onto Ruta 40 and Gobernador Gregores, Argentina! I will miss Chile immensely, the country provided me with some amazing highlights so far on this trip, including my rides to Chile Chico and Hornopiren.
I got up before sunrise and packed my tent, loaded my bike, and I was on my way just as the sun rose and I was on my way to Gobernador Gregores, Argentina
The border crossing was only a few miles away, so I was hoping there would be no lines and I could get on my way into Argentina without any fuss.
Although the trip total was 260 miles (428 kilometers), it is mostly paved. I took Ruta 40, and the whole trip took me just under 6 hours.
I purchased online a Tourism Card (USD $100) for Argentina from here. I got mine for 90 Days. You MUST do this before you enter or travel to Argentina. It is not available at point of entry for Argentina.
