Description

If the weather is fine, if you‘re a bit tired about Ruta 40 and if 180 km dirt road don’t bother you, we recommend this road to Los Antiguos. Take your time and pick a wild campingspot for the night in the dessert or on a little river. Expect wind and enjoy Patagonia at its best.

Want to stress the beauty of the road. It's slow going and washboardy but very doable in any rig and the scenery makes up for the wobbly road, big time!

Agree with some of the previous comments. Ruta41 is a great route. It’s a stunning drive, which you can take all the way up to Los Antiguos, or cross the border at Paso Roballos and connect with Chile X83. The R41/X83 drive is one of the best we’ve done in Patagonia, and vastly different on each side of the border. Road conditions were better than the southern Carretera Austral when we drove it in Jan 23. Also, the location of this marker is accurate, but the base map for iOverlander indicates a more significant road - the 103 - closer to Baja Caracoles, which, if coming from the south, looks like a more obvious choice. We believe this road has been closed. We couldn’t find it.

On nous a recommandé de faire la route 41, et nous ne le regrettons pas ! Nous l’avons prise à Los Antiguos direction Lago Posadas. Nous avons dormi à Arroyo Lincoln (spot parfait pour passer la nuit). Avant de partir nous avons entendu que la route était coupée juste avant la route pour accéder au Paso Roballos, après avoir consulté Police et Gendarmie nous sommes parti. La route est faisable en camping car si on a pas peur des situations difficiles. En revanche, le passage de la route barrée est impossible à passer sans 4x4. Sauf si la route à été refaite depuis.
Pour finir : la route 41 est incroyable de diversité. Infiniment précise et sauvage.
