The Hiking was Wonderful!!

The Hiking was Wonderful!!
This active family of four just returned from a custom Hikers Patagonia Adventure in Patagonia and share some of their incredible experiences: “First of all, we enjoyed all the hiking- it was wonderful!! Second, we loved all of our guides!  Lorena in Santiago took care of us well. Chris in Patagonia Camp was good and entertaining. Ismail, Frederico in Calafate were great. Andres in El Chalten was especially good. Had a nice pace for hiking and just an easy guy to be around for 9-10 hours. His knowledge of geology was great and interesting to us. Patagonia Camp yurts were fun, unique, warm, cozy, and loved that they were separated. El Puma, in El Chalten, was very comfortable and well situated. Loved Alta Vista in El Calafate because I wouldn't have wanted to be in town. I loved hiking from the house and riding the horses was special. Alta Vista’s meals ...

The Best Trip We Ever Took!

The Best Trip We Ever Took!
After an exhilarating 17-day customized In The Wake of Magellan adventure, exploring Patagonia, Buenos Aires, and Iguazu Falls, these two travelers share their initial insights upon return home. “We are returned from South America, and it was the trip of a lifetime! We both seriously thought it was probably the best trip we ever took! Very briefly, we were amazed at the amount of organization that so many transfers, flights, connections, and pre-paid fees were necessitated, and are truly amazed that you had it all organized and that it all went so smoothly. Guides would ask, "Did you pay for ?.....", and while we looked at each other with blank faces, the guide would look through our papers and then say, "Yeah, you're all set." We are very impressed.Also - the guides were consistently excellent, really excellent. And the food and wine at Singular, on the ship, and at Nuss was...

Chasing the Craft Beer Craze in Argentina
This afternoon, after speaking with two wild travelers, wanting to make sure they find some tasty brews while traveling in Argentina, I felt compelled to share my thoughts on the craft brew scene in Argentina.   The craft beer scene has been taking over the US by force over the past decade.  Why leave your craft beer obsession at home while traveling? The South America Craft Brew scene has also exploded in recent years and is definitely worth checking out. On your next trip to Argentina, if you need a short break from all the Malbec, check out some of these four awesome beer destinations with links to RateBeer.com to check out how these brews stack up! 1) Bariloche: located in northern Argentine Patagonia, Bariloche was founded by swiss and german immigrants.  They have a long tradition of craft beer brewing.  There are numerous outdoor activities to do in Bariloche, or just...

The distance from the rest of the world was part of the appeal

The distance from the rest of the world was part of the appeal
Carol and Chas just returned from our newest Chile Adventure- Exploring Wild Chile: Off the Beaten Path in Patagonia with a customized cruise in the middle.  Beginning in “Chile’s Yellowstone”- Patagonia Conservation- in the Aysen Region, continuing on to explore the southern fjords on an intimate cruise and culminating amidst the stellar peaks of Torres del Paine National Park, in the south, Carol recounts her experience here: “Every part of our trip was wonderful.  We enjoyed all of the accommodations.  Hotel Castillo Rojo in Santiago was delightful, lovely staff, nice quiet neighborhood with lots to walk to (restaurants, hike up to the Santuario Imaculata Concepcion, Pablo Neruda house, etc.)  It was lovely being in the Parque Patagonia in Valle Chacabuco.  The distance from the rest of the world was part of the appeal.  It took 8 hours of driving on a dirt road to get there, rather than the 5 hour...
