Getting there & around
Patagonia is synonymous with unmaintained gravel roads, missing transport links and interminable bottom-scalding bus rides. Fortunately, an ever-expanding network of charter and scheduled flights is emerging to connect all the highlights, at least in summer. Before skimping on your transportation budget, bear in mind that the region comprises a third of the world’s eighth-largest country. If you’re bussing it along the eastern seaboard, note that schedules are based on the demands of Buenos Aires, with arrivals and departures frequently occurring in the dead of night.
