April 22, 2006 ? Livingston, Montana adventure company owner Felicia Ennis has partnered with the president of the Chilean Enduro Association to offer her clients an experience that blows the boundaries off a traditional ?dude? ride. Riders are encouraged to test their mettle and skill in the exotic Patagonia landscape of glaciers, granite mountains and turquoise colored lakes while competing in the unique one day Patagonia Enduro competition.
Experienced riders who participate will navigate through challenging and remote terrain including steep slopes, forests, prairies and rivers. Riders have a choice to ride 75km, 60km, 45km, or 25km. You will not want to miss this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in Patagonia traditions. ?There are many endurance championships, but such as the one in Patagonia there are not. You have to experience it.? Elizabeth Huygue ? Chilean national champion
In addition to the Patagonia Enduro, Bella Treks offers hiking and birding adventures in the Torres del Paine National Park and has recently added vineyard tours in northern Chile. Felicia Ennis is personally involved in each trip, from the dream stages to the actual adventure.
Bella Treks owner Felicia Ennis, besides being fluent in Spanish, is an accomplished outdoors-woman with spark and spunk who is at ease in the southern hemisphere. She lived and worked at the exclusive Explora Hotel in the Torres del Paine National Park where she honed her Spanish fluency and gained intimate knowledge of native plants and animals. Among Felicia?s many accomplishments is her ascent of the South Tower, the first recorded female ascent of this route. Other mountaineering adventures have put her on summits in Bolivia, Canada, the U.S. and in Europe. Due to her love for exploration a glacier is even named in her honor.
Anyone interested in this event should consider spending the week prior or after the race riding with Bella Treks. It?s guaranteed to be an adventure of a lifetime!
