Julie and Craig came to us last year wanting to retrace the steps of some of their close friends who had traveled to Argentina with Wildland Adventures the previous year. They had a bit more time than their friends so, not only were they able to soak up the culture in Buenos Aires, drink wine and explore the vineyards in Mendoza and enjoy the estancia life in El Calafate, but, they also got to add on almost an entire week in Torres del Paine filled with epic treks and scenic vistas! Julie enthusiastically shares some of their personal highlights from the trip below:
“We had an awesome trip! Having the tour guides meet us and the transfers was so great- the guide in Buenos Aires (Andrea) and the one in El Calafate were really great; smart, friendly, interesting, informed.
In Mendoza, we had 3 different gals. We really loved Mariella who took us on the wine tour! She had spent 7 years as a ski instructor in Vail. We had the BEST meal ever on the wine tour in Mendoza at Ruca Malen!!!!!
We loved staying on the Alta Vista ranch in El Calafate- the family running it were so nice. We loved the horseback riding and the tour of Shearing Shed. Hiking the glacier was cool too!
Patagonia Camp was amazing! We loved the accommodations, but they were a long ride to the hikes. We liked the dining room here, as we really got to know some other traveler. The food was good also!
Thanks so much- We loved the trip and will use you again and tell all our friends!
