This is another great classic and very popular tour here in South America. Let us show you the magic of Patagonia, its mountains, lakes and plains stretching as far as the eye can see; the fjords of Chile's Pacific coast, the hot springs at Puyuhuapi, all the way down to the Perito Moreno glacier.
San Carlos de Bariloche, the "Swiss Capital" of Patagonia, located at the foot of the Andes, surrounded by rugged peaks and its huge lake, the Nahuel Huapi. One of the last natural paradises left on the planet.
The Carretera Austral: This road was built by the Chilean government to link the continental part of Chile with the southern areas of the country. It leads through massive almost tropical vegetation, around lakes and mountains and drives along the Pacific fjords.
The drive around Lake Buenos Aires: We will follow the lake shore for two days, as it is the second largest lake in South America, after the Titicaca in Peru.
The famous Ruta 40 and the Patagonian farms: On this mythical road, you will experience how big Argentina really is, and we will spend the night on a genuine Estancia, where you will meet with the famous gauchos, which have been around ever since the country exists.
The Perito Moreno glacier at El Calafate: It is the fastest in the world, located amongst the largest ice fields on the planet. Listen to the rumbling of breaking ice, and if we are lucky, we will witness the huge pieces of ice cracking down into the turquoise colored lake.
This tour runs from mid-October through to mid-March, for a period of 9 days. Day 1 is your arrival day in Bariloche, day 9 your fly-out from El Calafate. More information can be found on our CALENDAR page. Once your booking is made, we will send you a complete and precise day-by-day tour schedule.
