Have about 2.5 weeks to spend in Argentina.
Planning to BA - Bariloche - El Chalten - El Calafate - Ushuaia, probably going by bus all the way.
Do I need to book accomodation in advance, or can I just show and find something?
Will a budget of $100/day cover my costs (including transport)?
Thanks for any help offered
Hello there! am planning to hike Patagonia starting from El Chalten in Argentina in January.
I currently have an Esbit alcohol stove and a Decathlon Arpenaz 2 men tent (Able to withstand 50km/h winds). This has worked well for me camping and trekking in rainy tropical areas but i don't think they will hold up against strong winds.
Those who have trekked in Patagonia, what tent and stoves did you use? And are El Chalten and Bariloche good places to buy/rent gear?
I want to travel to Patagonia for around 11 days or so around the first of December. I would like to hike 5-10 miles most of those days. I am an older female traveling alone so I would appreciate traveling with some kind of tour to meet people, but don't want to be stuck with a group 24/7 if you get what I mean. I do not want to share a room and only need quiet, clean, comfortable space for accommodation. I speak basic Spanish. Thanks for all comments and thoughts, especially if you know…
Next december I am touring the North, and I'd like you guys help me with mimtinerary, in case I'm missing something great, I'm visiting something not worth of it o you think I'm trying to visit too many things and I'll be rushing.
I land in Salta a Monday at 11:00 AM, and fly out Friday at 15:00.
I thought that the best it renting a car to be able to visit more things than in tours or public transport.
So my plan is:
Monday: 11:00 AM I land in Salta, I rent a car and go straight…
Hi, I wanted to see if there are two travelers interested in sharing a cab to see the Perito Moreno glacier when we are there on January 20, 2017. It seems like a good option for a group of 4 instead of paying to take a bus and not control your schedule. Thanks.
I am currently in Buenos Aires and wanna start travelling at the first weekend of December.
Rough idea is to get down to Puerto Madryn for 3-4 days, then El Calafate, cross over to Chile and work my way up North. Bariloche, Santiago, Mendoza, Salta, Atacama desert and maybe go into Bolivia, South Brazil and returning to Buenos Aires.
Problem is, I really don't wanna do a 30h bus ride. The flights to Puerto Madryn are about 200US$ one way for this time which is already super expensive…
