At the beginning of the 1900 years German and Swiss immigrants set up on the east side of the “Sierras Grandes” in Cordoba Province, leaving a legacy and influence noticeable that lasted beyond the time: Green pines “alpine looklike” fields, mountain dirt roads and tiny little towns where you can buy chocolate or “handmade” beer at small gathered wooden houses that will help you dream you are travelling along the Swiss Alps.

Great escape to “Sierras de Córdoba”, visiting Villa Ciudad América, La Cumbrecita, Los Reartes, San Agustín and Villa General Belgrano
Day 1 Camino al Río Los Espinillos
Time for breakfast and a short tour introduction. After setting our gear, we leave the place and we drive to the west coast of “Lago Los Molinos”. There we set bikes and start pedalling uphill towards the beatiful “Sierras grandes”. After 15km we detour and leave the gravel road to get in to a jeep track and from now we´ll have one 4×4 as support vehicle.
The track, nearly a singletrack, is fantastic for mountain biking! We’ll have uhphills, downhills, enjoying some technical riding. We’ll all meet again in “Los Espinillos” river and we’ll cross it through a tiny hanging bridge! Some more ups and downs through pine forests to finally arrive to a paved road that will lead us to our hotel. Dinner will be organized in the Club House by “Los Molinos”.
