Patagonian Highlights

A very beautiful place

5
We travelled to Patagonia in the group, departing November 16th 2015. I had waited a long time to visit and was not disappointed. There was a lot of travelling to do, but it is such a vast area, this was ineviatble and the long days by bus were limited to two on rough roads. Fortunately, the weather was good and this only enhanced the stunning scenery. Generally, the accommodation was good, Calafate is worth mentioning as I thought the accommodation was exceptional and staff extremely friendly- and had the best room views from my perspective. The activities were well considered and there were lots of opportunities to stop and admire your surroundings. Most memorable will always be the long walking days, because there was no rush and they took you to places of incredible beauty. Buenos Aires was an interesting city, with hidden gems for us, which included an area to have luch and watch tango in the day time. I would struggle to find fault with this trip, only that it would have been easy to extend and stay for longer.

Spectacular and worth the distances travelled

5
Fantastic scenery, massive distances to travel in between though, but worth it for Fitzroy, Moreno, Torres del Paine etc. The excellent rating is in part due to the luck we had with weather, even down as far south as Ushuaia. There were only two proper trekking days though, maybe some options to do more would have been good, and an extra day if Chile for the Grey Glacier would have justified the miles in a minibus.

It is a bit of an effort to get to Patagonia but it is worth it. The Andes are majestic and the glaciers mesmerising. A two week tour really is not enough time to do justice to the area.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We were a small group of nine people. Pepe our leader was very good and kept us up to date with all the schedules and where we would be walking to on the day as sometimes due to weather conditions changes needed to be made. I went on the upgraded trip (no camping) and I found all of the hostels and hotels very comfortable and the staff were accommodating. Some of us were lucky to see ice being calved from the glacier - that was amazing.

A very good holiday about as far away from the grey British winter as it is possible to get. But the weather was much better than I was expecting- sunshine almost every day and very little rain.

Patagonian Highlights (AAA) Jan 2015

A great trip. Patagonia is a large area but this trip hits the highlights- Fitzroy, Petito Moreno glacier, Torres del Paines NP, and Ushuaia. The minibus trips from El Calafate to Torres del Paine (1 day) and from TdP and Ushuaia (2 days) are long but there are stops for pictures, short walking, food so not too bad. Our group agreed that hikes should be considered as moderate- both have parts that aren't bad but both have parts that are steep and rocky so more challenging.

Recommended but lots of driving

All in all, a good way to get orientated with a highlights reel of southern Patagonia's best bits. Which are surely right up there with the world's most spectacular scenery. Be aware, however, that in an area as huge as Patagonia, there are some seriously long drives required to get between the various scenic hotspots and not a great deal of free time between. Although these journeys never seemed to drag too badly due to the epic scenery passing by outside the bus windows and were offset by the days hiking in various National Parks. All in all, a really good trip.

I had wanted to go to Patagonia for years and finally took the plunge and booked this trip - it certainly didn't disappoint! There's a lot of travelling and so much crammed into the two weeks that it flies by. The overnight stays in Buenos Aires that bookend the main activities were brilliant, and it was nice to start and finish with a blast of heat. The walking surprised me by being no more difficult than some of the longer Lake District/Scottish Munro type walks, and the gear I had was more than adequate. Food and drink were delicious and drinking tap water all the way caused no problems - Argentinian steaks, Patagonian lamb and Malbec were favourites.
