    After breakfast, we’ll cross the border and step into Chile, the land of the fjords!  The ‘Lakes Crossing’ is the only water passage through the Andes Mountains Range and the scenery is unique and breathtaking. Originally used as a trade route by the indigenous people of the region and later established by German settlers, nowadays many travelers cross from Chile to Argentina this way, via a combination of buses and boats which take you through national parkland and across three lakes.

     

    You’ll depart from your hotel in Bariloche by bus early in the morning to travel to Puerto Pañuelo, where you’ll embark on the first boat of the day. You’ll sail Nahuel Huapi Lake and reach Puerto Blest on a 1-hour navigation through beautiful woods and snow-capped mountains that surround the shore.

     

    Who were the first men to embark on this adventurous journey? On the way, your local guide will reveal their history and other interesting facts about the vegetation and wildlife of the area.

     

    From Puerto Blest, take a bus to Puerto Alegre where you’ll embark on your second boat of the day, crossing Lake Frías, with Mount Tronador as an amazing backdrop, to reach Puerto Frías, where you’ll finally cross borders into Chile.

    For the last part of the journey, explore the Todos Los Santos Lake (which stretches between Pehulla and Petrohúe), during a 2-hour navigation where you may see, weather permitting, the forbidding Puntiagudo and Osorno volcanoes.

     

    Once in Petrohué, we’ll take you on a 3-hour bus trip, passing by Llanquihue Lake, the second-largest lake in Chile (and this is a land full of lakes), to Puerto Varas where we’ll arrive at our hotel.

With a clear German influence, it sits on the southwest banks of Lake Llanquihue, which offers commanding views of snow-capped Osorno Volcano and Calbuco Volcano, both still active. With its wooden houses, alerce trees, and German Jesuit churches, as well as rose bushes covering every street, it is better known as the “City of Roses.”

     

    The gastronomy of Puerto Varas is something to savor while staying in this city. Taste the “Kuchen” pie, a traditional dish of the first German immigrants, the homemade marmalades (Puerto Varas is famous for their blueberry production!), and the best-smoked salmon fish.

The next viewpoints to visit will be Nordenskjöld Lake, Salto Grande Viewpoint, Pehoé Viewpoint, Weber Bridge, Paine River, and Grey Lake. At this last point, we’ll have time for lunch (not included in the fare) and for a walk in the area, if weather conditions permit.

     

    As we continue, we’ll return to the vehicle to continue the route, exiting the Park through the southern section. Our last stop facing Torres del Paine will be at the most impressive point on the Y-290 route, known as Mirador Grey. From here, you’ll be able to observe the set of mountains dominating the western part of the province, the immense Toro Lake, and if weather conditions allow, also a section of the Grey Glacier.

     

    After an incredible day in the park, we’ll have an hour’s journey to Villa Cerro Castillo for our overnight stay.

    El Calafate

     

    This morning, we’ll make our way to the quaint little town of El Calafate, located in the dry and dramatic Patagonian steppe. It is on the border of Lago Argentino (Argentina’s biggest lake) and is considered to be the capital of the glaciers. It is the gateway to the incredible Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the only glaciers in the world that is still advancing.

     

    Upon arrival, you’ll have the rest of the day to relax or explore the areas around town and watch the sunset along the coastal promenade. If there’s time, we recommend a walk around the Laguna Nimez Bird Sanctuary, a natural reserve located about 6-8 blocks from the center of El Calafate and is a haven for over 100 different species of birds and a diverse range of flora and fauna.

    Today, we’ll have a unique opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful glaciers in the world. Beginning with an early pickup at our hotel, we’ll travel to Los Glaciares National Park, located 50 miles from El Calafate. Home of the magnificent Perito Merino Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981 when its almost 200 glaciers were discovered. Half of the park is occupied by the Patagonian ice field, the second largest ice field after Antarctica.

     

    Upon arrival at the national park, our guide will show us the different walkways from where you will be able to walk in front of the colossal ice wall, and if you’re lucky, perhaps see chunks of ice calve off the face of the glacier and crash into the lake below with a thunderous roar. When the falls, the world holds its breath and all other sounds stop on the earth’s surface. It’s truly spectacular!

     

    You’ll start your adventure from the main balcony and then have some free time to wander around freely until the meeting time with our guide. For lunch, the national park has an area with a restaurant and a snack bar (not included).

     

    For a different perspective of this impressive glacier, we’ll have a 1-hour boat ride this afternoon to see the massive glacier wall that rises 240 feet above Argentino Lake and in between floating icebergs. After exploring the park, you’ll be taken back to your hotel in El Calafate.

     

    OPTIONAL:
    Full-Day Mini trekking on Perito Merino Glacier (10 hours)
    For those looking for a different kind of adventure, you have the option of doing a mini trek on the Perito Merino Glacier. The excursion begins at the Puerto de la Bahía “Bajo de las Sombras,” where you will embark on a boat ride across the turquoise waters of Lake Argentino to reach the opposite shore of the Magallanes Peninsula. The navigation time is approximately 20 minutes. Upon arrival, our expert guides will outfit us with crampons for traction on the ice. As you step onto the glacier’s surface, you are immediately immersed in a surreal landscape of towering ice formations, deep crevasses, and glistening blue ice caves. Led by knowledgeable guides, we’ll navigate a carefully curated route, traversing frozen streams and ascending ice ramps while learning about the glacier’s formation, movement, and unique characteristics. Along the way, there will be ample opportunities to marvel at the glacier’s stunning features, including jagged seracs, sparkling ice formations, and panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. After a few hours of exhilarating trekking, we’ll return to the base camp, where you can warm up with hot drinks and reflect on the unforgettable experience of walking on one of the world’s last advancing glaciers. Trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to connect with nature in a truly extraordinary setting, leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.

You will learn about the history of the ranch, which was formerly dedicated to sheep production and today has been transformed into the most prestigious Hereford cabin of these latitudes. During the journey, it is common to come across condors, foxes, and hares, with Cerro Frias as the protagonist.

     

    Upon arrival, guests are greeted by friendly gauchos and offered a welcoming hot drink and a delicious snack in the quincho (rustic dining room). We’ll then visit the barn to appreciate how a real gaucho (Argentine cowboy) works the shearing shed, and view a unique demonstration of gaucho horsemanship. Depending on the day’s activities, we may help milk the cows, herd sheep, or learn the history behind the founders of the estancia.

     

    After returning to the quincho, enjoy a mouth-watering meal with grilled meat, sizzling over a traditional Patagonian fire pit.

    This morning, we’ll marvel at the towering Andean mountains as we drive through the desert of Southern Patagonia on the famous Route 40. Our route takes us around the southeastern shores of Lago Argentino, South America’s third largest body of water, and across the La Leona River, which connects Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma. As we drive, watch the granite fin of Mount Fitz Roy rise up behind the turquoise waters of the lakes and be on the lookout for Nandu (a flightless bird similar to an ostrich). By the river, we’ll pass La Leona Road House, where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid once hid out for almost a month after robbing a bank.

     

    El Chalten is the top-rated trekking destination, the Argentinean capital of trekking. Located at the foot of the Fitz Roy Mountain, surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers, and forests, it is still a hidden gem of Southern Patagonia. The charming little village, which is also the starting point for most paths, is a paradise for hikers.

    The trail begins at the trailhead near the town and leads adventurers through diverse landscapes, including lush forests, rocky terrain, and alpine meadows. After several hours of hiking, trekkers reach Laguna de los Tres, a pristine glacial lake nestled beneath the towering cliffs of Mount Fitz Roy. The turquoise waters of the lake reflect the rugged beauty of the surrounding mountains, creating a breathtaking backdrop for photographs and moments of awe. While challenging, the trek is well worth the effort for its unparalleled views of one of Patagonia’s most iconic landmarks.

     

    This evening, we’ll enjoy a well-deserved dinner at The Asadores, arguably the best restaurant in El Chalten. Since tomorrow is a travel day back to El Calafate and then on to Buenos Aires, while some will stay behind to extend their Patagonia adventure in Ushuaia, this will be our final dinner together as a group.

     

    The Asadores in El Chaltén promises an unforgettable culinary experience infused with Patagonian flavors and warmth. Our 5-course meal will showcase the region’s finest ingredients, including succulent cuts of locally sourced beef, lamb, and game, expertly grilled to perfection by skilled asadores (barbecue masters) (Note: vegetarian options available). Each dish will be paired with a selection of exquisite wines from Argentine vineyards, enhancing the flavors of Patagonian cuisine. As we savor every bite amidst the lively atmosphere and friendly camaraderie, we can’t help but feel a sense of gratitude for the unforgettable adventures and experiences we’ve had over the past 2-weeks.

    FAQs

    When is the best time of year to visit Patagonia?

    The best time to visit Patagonia depends on your interests. For trekking and outdoor activities, the summer months (December to February) offer warmer temperatures and longer days. However, shoulder seasons like spring (September to November) and fall (March to May) can also be great times to visit, with fewer crowds and changing landscapes.

    What should I pack for a trip to Patagonia?

    It's essential to pack layers, as the weather in Patagonia can be unpredictable. Bring waterproof and windproof outer layers, sturdy hiking boots, warm clothing, sun protection, and a daypack for hiking. Don't forget to pack insect repellent, a refillable water bottle, and any personal medications or gear you may need.

    Are there any safety concerns in Patagonia?

    While Patagonia is relatively safe for travelers, it's essential to be prepared for outdoor activities and respect local guidelines and regulations. Weather conditions can change rapidly, so always check the forecast and be prepared for changes in temperature and terrain. Additionally, take precautions against wildlife encounters and follow Leave No Trace principles to minimize your impact on the environment.

    What wildlife can I expect to see in Patagonia?

    Patagonia is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including guanacos, foxes, condors, pumas, and various bird species. Keep an eye out for wildlife while exploring national parks and natural areas, but remember to observe from a safe distance and avoid disturbing animals in their natural habitat.

    What is the currency used in Patagonia, and can I use credit cards?

    The currency used in Patagonia depends on the country you're visiting. In Chilean Patagonia, the currency is the Chilean Peso (CLP), while in Argentine Patagonia, it's the Argentine Peso (ARS).
