Travel to Patagonia

How to travel to Patagonia?

Patagonia is the southernmost place in South America, the frontier area between Argentina and Chile.

Patagonia is divided into 4 large districts that represent the main tourist attractions, both for their scenery and their wildlife: the Valdés peninsular, Ushuaia, the glaciers and the lake district.

Patagonia is a vast geographical area. Patagonia is roughly two-thirds the size of Mexico. In Patagonia you will find immense, scarcely populated landscapes. The population density is comparable with that of the West Sahara region.

El Calafate

Patagonia is one of the worlds most beautiful and amazing regions to travel in. You have the chance to see and discover: nature in one of its purest forms, an immense wind carved landscape, Mountains (Torres del Paine, Mt. Fitz Roy), Lakes, Glaciers (Perito Moreno, Upsala, Grey, etc.)and a unique regional flora and fauna.

Peninsula Valdes

On the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Patagonia, you will have the opportunity to visit diverse breeding Colonies: Penguins, Seabirds, Sea lions, Seals, etc. You will also get a unique chance to do Whale watching Peninsula de Valdez.

You can fly from Buenos Aires to Trelew or Puerto Madryn Airport and from there to the Peninsula.

We recommend staying in Puerto Madryn and organising excursions from there to one of the most beautiful cities in Patagonia Argentina.

Most of the accommodations that we offer are: Estancias and Lodges in the countryside, thus you will have the opportunity to get a real taste of the land and its people.

All are transfers are done by 4×4 with your own guide. Our guides are all locals of Patagonia, who can give insider tips and have knowledge concerning Patagonia, the land, customs and its people.

The Ruta 40

Ushuaia and Antartida

What about Ushuaia?

Although it doesn’t have a landscape as outstanding as the glaciers or the Atlantic coast, Ushuaia has the Tierra del Fuego National Park on the Beagle Channel, and you can also take advantage of its access to the sea to embark on one of its cruises to Antarctica or to Chile on the Mare Australis Cruise.

On Patagonline we will take into account the dates of your trip, your personal tastes, your budget and journey time to help you to organise your trip to Patagonia.

The Lake District

The Nahuel Huapi Lake is probably the best known lake in Patagonia Argentina, you can visit it from the city of Bariloche which also gives you access to the Lanin National Park along the route of the 7 lakes.

We always recommend crossing the lakes between Bariloche and the Chilean Patagonia area with its volcanoes and beautiful fishing villages. Try to connect with the wonderful Carretera Austral of hidden lakes and landscapes and very little visited.

The North

Do you still have time to travel?… “take a short trip to the north”.

Iguazu with its national parks can be done in 2 nights comfortably, connecting your last day with the international flight back home. And in two days you can see both sides, Argentina and Brazil.

The Argentinean Northwest needs more time to explore its coloured hills and canyons.

And if you want to cross into Chile, the Atacama Desert is spectacular, as is Easter Island. Ideal to do in the austral winter (European summer) when many areas of Patagonia are closed to tourism.

And of course don’t forget to save days for Buenos Aires, one of the most exciting and spectacular cities in South America.

How to Travel ?

Patagonia, both in Argentina and Chile, lacks resources and its infrastructure is limited. A good example of this is the number of kilometres to travel, the state of the roads and the few airports in the Patagonian region.

It is important when organising a trip to Argentina to take into account these distances and limitations, and to try to plan ideal routes for your trip.
