If the idea is to camp should bring everything to it: sleeping bags, insulating, flashlight, heater for cooking, helmet, trunk and of course a bike in good condition.
We recommend bringing clothes for low temperatures, we must not forget that the North of Argentina is an area with a large temperature range.
It is essential not to forget the sunscreen, walking shoes, insect repellent, hat and sunglasses. It is also advisable to prepar a first-aid kit, just in case.
We recommend that rather than make the journey loaded with food, use the occasion to taste the typical food of the region: empanadas, locro and tamales. Of course some snack to eat between meals can be as cereal bars, dried fruit or fresh fruit.
