Traveler Review

It was a worry-free trip, every destination we reached there was someone waiting for us. When I had questions, I was able to reach the travel planner and he will respond quickly which was such a comfort.

Best of this tour: We prepared this nice itinerary for Sabrina and her family, who were looking forward to visiting Patagonia. They remarked: ‘’Andean crossing from Bariloche to Puerto Varas was such a unique experience.We saw waterfalls, mountain ranges, beautiful lakes, and three volcanoes. We loved it so much’’.​

What would you do differently? Having the chance, I suggest taking one night in Puerto Blest or Peulla, crossing the Andes in two days. Also a couple of days could be added to Bariloche and its surrounding areas. It’s one of our favorite destinations in Argentina as there are plenty of outdoor activities to perform in addition to the previously mentioned, like mountain biking, sightseeing, or guided trekking.
