Patagonia Highlights Tour
Start your trip in the sophisticated Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. Meet your guide at the airport, who will transfer you to the first city on your trip: Buenos Aires, the elegant Argentine capital
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and discover this fascinating city with a half-day city tour. Drive through 9 de Julio, the largest avenue in the world, which features the obelisk, one of the simbols of Buenos Aires, and the emblematic Colon Theatre. Visit the traditional San Telmo and La Boca in the south, then head to the downtown to view Plaza de Mayo and the 'Pink House' (the government house), and the modern Puerto Madero. Finish off in the northern area to visit the fashionable Palermo and the classy Recoleta.
After breakfast, head to the airport to board a domestic flight to Bariloche, your first destination in Patagonia. This city located in Rio Negro province lies on the shore of Nahuel Huapi Lake. Originally called 'Buriloche,' meaning 'people on the other side of the hills' in Mapundungun (Mapuche Language), San Carlos de Bariloche is famous in Argentina and the rest of the world for its enthralling panoramic landscapes acquired from the top of the nearby hills, its lakes, and its chocolate. Spend the day at your leisure strolling through the city. You can visit some of the tea houses, a custom brought by the Welsh immigrants.
Today, take a tour to Mount Tronador, so-called because of the thunder-like sound of its falling seracts. Transfer from your hotel in Bariloche towards the Huenuleo Prairie, taking in views of Argentina's Lake District.
Cross Manso River and enter the Nahuel Huapi National Park, a verdant reserve with breathtaking lakes and exotic flora and fauna. Stop at Ventisquero Negro (Black Glacier) and head to the base of the mount, which used to be a volcano. Take a light walk through the area, enjoy lunch surrounded by the nature, and return to your hotel following the same route.
Note: Entrance fee to Nahuel Huapi is to be paid directly on the spot.
Today, get ready to cross the Andes and go from Argentina to Chile. Transfer to the Pañuelo Pier and board a boat to cross Nahuel Huapi Lake. Arrive at Blest Port, where you will take a bus towards Alegre Port. Here, take a ferry ride to cross Lake Frias until getting to Frias Port, where your driver will be waiting for you to transfer you to your hotel in Peulla.
Have breakfast in Peulla, contemplating the soothing Frias Lake. Then, board a ferry to cross another of the lakes in Chile's Lake District: Todos los Santos. Arrive in Petrohué, famous for its falls, and from there, transfer to Puerto Varas, a charming Patagonian city founded by German settlers that seems to have come out of a fairy tale.
Have breakfast and take a tour of the German cities of Puerto Varas, Puerto Montt & Frutillar, founded in the late 19th century. Overlooking the mighty Osorno Volcano, Puerto Varas is known as 'the city of roses' due to its beautiful gardens. Contemplate its wooden buildings made by the German settlers and declared National Monuments, and the characteristic Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Philippi Hill will reward you with panoramic views of the area, its azure lakes and towering volcanoes.
In Puerto Montt, visit its cathedrals, its main square, and the German settler monument. During low tide, it is possible to see the fossil forest of Punta Pelluco from the beach. Head to the handicraft and seafood market.
Make a third stop at the charming city of Frutillar, on the shores of Llanquihue Lakem abd visit the German Museum.
After the tour, return to your hotel in Puerto Varas.
Enjoy breakfast and take in the mesmerizing Lake District and Puerto Varas city one last time before going to the airport to go to Puerto Natales. Since this city does not have an airport, fly to Punta Arenas, and from there take a regular bus to arrive in Puerto Natales and head to your hotel to have some rest. This town not only is the capital of Ultima Esperanza province, but also the gateway to one of the highlights in Patagonia: Torres del Paine National Park.
Have breakfast and departure for a full-day tour exploring the world-famous Torres del Paine, with its mirror-lakes and its strangely-shaped mountains that create an almost surreal landscape. On the way, stop at the Mylodon Cave, an ideal place for paleonthology lovers. A couple of decades ago, a German explorer found the remains of an ancient animal that resembles a sloth, which has been named 'mylodon,' causing the cave to be declared a National Monument.
After this unforgettable trip, return toyour hotel in Puerto Natales to spend your last night before returning to the Argentine side.
Have breakfast and prepare to go through the largest mountain chain in the world, the Andes, to return to Argentina. Travel by bus and arrive in El Calafate, gateway to the UNESCO Los Glaciares National Park. Check in at your hotel in this town in Argentine Patagonia.
Today, you will visit one of the highlights of Argentine Patagonia: the Perito Moreno Glacier, in the Los Glaciares National Park. Border Lake Argentino and cross the Magallanes Peninsula until facing the mighty Perito Moreno. As you walk through the runway, you will face this imposing glacier, a view that is bound to captivate you. Take a boat ride to get closer to the glacier. Lunch is not included.
After the tour, take a transfer back to your hotel.
Have breakfast at your hotel and transfer to the airport to fly to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. It is located in Tierra del Fuego Island, and is the capital of Tierra del Fuego province.
Transfer to your hotel and admire the landscape made up by the southern part of the Andes Mountain Chain and the Beagle Channel.
Today, visit Tierra del Fuego National Park, an area of pristine lakes and native forests displaying different hues depending on the season. Begin your journey at La Ensenada, from where you can appreciate views of the Round Island, the snow-capped Sampaio Mountain Range, and the Beagle Channel. Then, head to Lake Roca, where you will encounter picture-perfect endemic trees. Sail Lapataia Bay before returning to your hotel in Ushuaia.
