Argentina, the country of tango, music and good food, is a country everyone should visit. This massive South-American nation is so big and so diverse that you can easily spend 3 weeks and still be amazed by everything you will see: the Andes mountains, the Glaciers, the vibrating cities… we loved and we will definitely go back!
Where we went
From Buenos Aires to Patagonia and back up again
We started our visit in Buenos Aires which is the natural point of entry. After spending a couple days in the vibrant capital we took a flight to Ushuaia which is the most Southern point of Argentina and the perfect starting point to explore Patagonia. There are many buses from Ushuaia to go back North, and we took the one to Puerto Natales (Chile) to explore the W hike (see Chile section – an absolute MUST). From Puerto Natales you can take another bus back to Argentina taking you to El Calafate and then further to El Chalten, both with breathtaking Patagonian views. We highly recommend this way of travelling and crossing back and forth to Chile by bus, it’s cheap and super easy and comfortable, and you get to see the Andes from up close! From El Calafate we took the plane back the Buenos Aires and then continued on by bus to Mendoza, to warm our bodies up again with several bottles of Malbec…
