Boost Your Adventure: The trails are calling and we have the answer

E-BIKES Energy efficient and emission-free transportation. In all aspects, technology has improved our lives, whether that be through breakthroughs in medicine, renewable energy or new sporting ideas to keep us active (and living) longer. It’s true that we can look at E-Bikes as a sort of a transportation vehicle that is just like any other vehicle around us, but bicycles hold a certain charm, which combined with simplicity, efficiency, and adventure – it has no comparison at all.

If you’re looking for an epic way to discover a whole new type of experience while enjoying Southern Patagonia’s most wonderful landscapes in a special and unique way, E-Bikes are the solution. No contamination, no noise, no barriers…just you alongside the beautiful nature and scenery, feeling everything, admiring all of it. Absorbing the absolute and colliding with the very air you breath.

Torres del Paine has long been hailed as a mecca for trekking lovers. But recently, new ways to experience the seemingly limitless landscapes of Southern Patagonia has been getting a lot of buzz. Many travelers are looking to add to their hiking, kayaking, or horseback riding experience here in the eighth wonder of the world, and E-Bikes provide the perfect option for that higher calling to adventure.

Boost your adrenaline. E-Bikes allow you to go longer, climb higher, and get more singletrack thrills throughout Patagonia’s pristine landscapes. These full-suspension electric mountain bikes help boost performance along the most challenging terrain.

Boost your adventure. Explore routes throughout Torres del Paine with a powerful, versatile and highly capable Giant E-Bike. Whether your looking to break out of the box and push your limits or rely on E-Bike’s ultimate power assist. That’s what adventure is all about.

With E-Bikes getting a lot of new hype – we’re here to give you the inside scoop.

Most travelers are curious about E-Bikes capabilities. So for starters (and the obvious question) – How fast can an E-Bike go?

The first thing to remember is that even though E-Bikes have a motor, we are still talking about bicycles here. Also important to understand that they are NOT scooters. One of the most frequently asked questions concerning E-Bikes is their speed. In Europe, an E-Bike must have a motor with a maximum power of 250W, assisting the E-Bike to a maximum speed of 25 km/h. In the US (and the types of E-Bikes that Chile Nativo Travel uses), the rules are different. These E-Bike motors can have a max of 500W and assist up to 20MPH (32km/ph). If the pedal support still functions above these limitations, then the bike becomes a so-called speed pedelec (a type of low-powered electric bicycle where the rider’s pedalling is assisted by a small electric motor.)

Can the bike go faster than the motor supports?

Well sure, technically. The E-Bike can go as fast as you can pedal, but the motor stops supporting you when you reach the max speed limitation.

With an E-Bike, you have the power to reach a speed that is suitable for your way of riding, whether that’s faster than the motor supports or at a speed that’s lower than the maximum motor support speed. This means it’s an ideal option for any rider – whether experienced or more leisure riders who aren’t looking for speed and agility.

Is riding an E-Bike physically challenging? Do I need prior experience on an E-Bike?

The answer is that you can decide if you want to challenge yourself with an E-Bike. There are several options to push yourself physically if you want to. For example, you can use the E-Bike without any support or in Eco mode and still feel your legs burn. You can ride farther and longer with an E-Bike and you are encouraged by the speed/fun factor. Chile Nativo currently has 7 bikes in 3 different sizes – 2 small, 3 medium, 2 large.

The second part to this question – if you were riding just a regular bike before then empower yourself to ride an E-Bike and reach your adventure limit.

And… If you prefer, you can also empower yourself to simply have a good time and enjoy the ride without any sweat.

What happens to the E-Bike when the battery runs out? Will I still be able to handle the bike on the trail? 

E-Bikes are supported by a SyncDrive motor technology, which provides support on the most challenging terrain. And we wouldn’t subdue our guests to long rides that the E-Bike battery couldn’t  handle. But, it’s still a question our guests ask and still a possibility when talking about an energy supported piece of equipment. So you’re on the trail with your guide and the battery runs out? What to do now? No worries, you can still pedal as if it were any regular bike. Is it easy? Well, that depends on what terrain you are riding, but you’ll still be able to get back safely with the support of your guide.

What adventures are there to experience Torres del Paine by E-Bike?

Chile Nativo has announced the first E-Bike program of its kind in Puerto Natales. The perfect 3 day adventure that gives travelers a brand new experience enjoying 3 days of riding the newest Giant Talon E-Bikes throughout the highlight spots around Puerto Natales. This trip combines spectacular singletrack trails and challenging throughout Estancia Bahia Esperanza Outdoor Park and Rupestre Patagonia – both unique locations offering awe-inspiring landscapes where history unfolds along private trails, hidden caves and among ancient cave paintings. Push your limits as you pedal along this action-packed itinerary is perfect for those looking to add the to their Patagonia adventure!

    Chile Nativo organised our self-guided 4 day trek in Torres del Paine and it was amazing. They arranged all the... transport, food and accommodation so all we needed to do was enjoy the hiking- which we certainly did! I would definitely use them again for similar adventures in the future.read more

    I am very happy with the service Chile Nativo provided. First of all, the experience during the trip itself was... amazing, the accommodation was more than I could ask for, the snack was delicious and our guide was not only very friendly but also extremely intelligent - he could answer all kind of questions we threw him about the park, animals, and geography! But the best part of Chile Nativo came up when a crisis hit. I got on the wrong bus the day before the tour started which prevented me from getting to the tour in time as a result. Daniella and Johana from the team were incredibly resourceful and kind to help me out of this situation. They worked after hours to help me find a private car that was willing to drive me from El Calafate to Puerto Natales in Chile. Johana even came to the office early morning to greet me and attend to me. I was beyond grateful for their professional service that really goes the extra mile in making sure I get to make to my trip and enjoy it thoroughly. Highly recommend Chille Nativo to everyone visiting Patagonia!read more

    Working with Chile Nativo was a very positive experience. They were able to accommodate our dates with no issues,... despite the dates being offset from their usual schedule. Everyone we worked with was communicative and helpful, and we felt well prepared given the information (e.g. packing list) they provided. The most important benefit of traveling with Chile Nativo was our access to one of their guides, Fernando.I cannot give enough positive feedback for Fernando. While everything you'd expect from a good guide was present, Fernando delivers so far above and beyond what's expected. Any question we had about a tree, for example, Fernando could answer, and then provide several layers more detail and information. I’ve never been hugely into geology, but Fernando’s knowledge of the rock formations in the park added a fascinating element to our hike; everything around us became even more interesting. By the afternoon of the first day, it felt as though we were hiking with a good friend who happened to know everything about the park. We were genuinely sad to leave once the trip was complete. The entire time, I felt that we were getting the very most out of our hike, and that Fernando knew the tips and tricks to avoiding crowds and getting the best views. A huge plus is his photography skills, too! Fernando was recommended to us by a friend, and we’ve been insistent to all our friends who’ve asked about our trip that they should also use Chile Nativo and ask for Fernando.read more

    I did the Fjord Trail with Chile Nativo and it was beautiful! The landscapes surpass what you can even imagine. We were... the only ones in nature for 3 days! The horses were nice, I had never done this before and I felt safe. I was never cold at night (make sure you rent your sleeping bag for this). We finished our tour with a boat trip on the Serrano River, back to Puerto Natales and we got to see the Balmacero Glacier and the Serrano Glacier (and walk around it). It is well organized and definitely a different way to travel and see nature in Patagonia !read more

    My wife and I just completed the O Circuit with Chile Nativo. Our guides Fernando and Ignacio were absolutely amazing!... Aside from the beautiful trip, we learned so much because of Chile Nativo Travel and our two guides. They were very accommodating of my wife's food allergies and were constantly upbeat and encouraging to us and our group. They even taped up ankles and sore joints when we expressed any sort of discomfort. A+ experience all around!read more

    I can't recommend this company enough! The initial planning and email correspondence leading up to our trip was... professional and seamless. They even took care of adding on and planning an additional leg to our trip to Argentinean Patagonia with a reliable local company there. Most importantly though, our Fast Trek W trip with Chile Nativo was everything we hoped it would be and more. Our guides, Baru and Nacio, were THE BEST. I was sad to leave them at the end of our 3 days together. They were responsible, knowledgeable, kind and so much fun - and they kept us going when spirits might have been a little down after 2 straight days of pouring rain and relentless wind. :) The camp is fantastic - the domes were super comfortable and the dining hall dome was a great meeting place to eat (and stretch and drink wine and pisco and even dance!). The drivers were great, the chefs were impressive (thanks Alexis!! - the food was an unexpected treat because it was seriously good, not just camping good). We somehow also managed to get extra lucky and click with the rest of the people in our group and are already planning our next trip together, so thanks for that added bonus! It was a magical trip that we will never forget. Thanks Chile Nativo! ❤️read more

    We had a once in a lifetime experience with Chile Nativo and Felipe which we will never forget. We enjoyed the 5D/4N... Torres del Paine Winter Multisport Adventure in early September. It was fantastic to be there in the “fringe” season, the weather was beautiful and we felt like we had the place to ourselves! We were very fortunate to have Felipe all to ourselves as well, giving us flexibility around our capabilities and the weather. Felipe was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the fauna, flora and even the geology (which impressed me as I’m a geologist!!). Felipe’s English is perfect, his cooking was delicious, and we felt very much at home during our trip. Our kayaking was cancelled due to very extreme weather, and Felipe not only found an alternative for the day for us, but also arranged for a generous refund.There was an issue with our international bank payment (through no fault of Chile Nativo’s) and the entire team continued to communicate with us and chase the payment at their end for weeks. We really appreciated this!Cannot recommend Chile Nativo, Felipe and Torres del Paine enough!read more

    Charlie and I had the most wonderful experience working with Isadora at Chile Nativo to plan our Patagonia trip. She... was a great communicator and organized everything for us based upon a great dialog between us with her. Our guide, Felipe Zuniga could not have been more wonderful. He was flexible and brought an amazing knowledge and experience to our trip that could not be equaled. Our memories of our honeymoon in Patagonia will always bring a smile and great memories! Hopefully we get the opportunity to return!read more
