Currently that’s my plan too. I’ll be shipping to Santiago. From
What I can figure out it’s a little cheaper but apparently far easier to release your bike from customs.

I'm starring in Colombia in November and doing it in the other direction (to Ushuaia then Buenos Aires). Be good to meet up on the road...

I am planning much the same, starting in Buenos Aires in early January. How are you getting your bike there? I have had little to no luck finding a shipper that will go from the US to Argentina.

Hi! I'm looking to do similar but shipping from UK to Chile as it seems their ports and customs clearance is cheaper and more reliable from there. We intend to start riding from January 2024.

Where are you looking to ship from?

Hi. Thanks for the responses and apologies for being off line. I tried shipping options from Canada and USA but nothing available. Revised plan is now to buy in Santiago and head off from there. I just signed up with SuziSantiago and hope to source a bike with their help. ETA Santiago approx first week Jan ‘24

I was shipping to Santiago from Heathrow. The best quote I had was £3995 arrival charges are around $250 US. Due to lack of aircraft space is a premium shipping costs are expensive.

I have had quotes for shipping to either the US or Canada for under £2000. I have decided due to the cost to delay my trip and ship to Canada and go from North to South.

What are your travel plans?

I’m so sorry for missing this! Haven’t been on the forum much and didn’t realise I had gotten a reply. Weird we don’t get email notifications on responses/posting updates/direct mentions.

Sorry to hear you’ve decided to delay the trip. I ended up shipping with Olaf of InTime shipping in Hamburg. Had to ride from Staffordshire to get the bike to Hamburg, but definitely worth it for the cost. They’ve currently got a special price going, might be worth checking with them? PM me if you want their details.

Our bikes should arrive just after Christmas, before new years. We aim to start riding south to Ushuaia, up the Atlantic coast to BA, then west wards to end our 6 months in Colombia. Brazil is still a maybe depends on how we go.

When do you think you’ll start your trip?

Dani

Hi. We’re still on target to arrive Santiago first week of Jan 24 then start heading south. Need to buy a bike when I get there but told that’s a 5 day process. There seem to be plenty for sale.

I'm planning a cycling trip from Ushuaia to Utah. For this, i'll be flying into BA, 1st week of Feb'24 and buy a bicycle there, then catch a flight to Ushuaia in order to save the month long ride down south without losing precious summer days. Then, i will start pedalling :-) my way up from Ushuaia in 2nd week of Feb'24.

Give me a honk/toot/wave if you see a lone cyclist heading north :-)
